Multi-award winning singer-songwriter Steve Harris’s creation of Angel Band began in 2020 when he came across a soulful rendition of the title song by none other than the Monkees, the 1960s pop phenom “I was captivated by the imagery of departing this earthly realm surrounded by angels playing music along the way,” Harris says with a grin.
At the center of the album are four original compositions by Harris, all based on stories found in Scripture. The rest of the songs on the album are Harris’s arrangements of old-time hymns, music that has stood the test of time. Harris is joined on the album by several notable musical artists, including multi-award-winning Mollie B, Grammy-nominated Alex Meixner, and singer-songwriter Jesse Harper. The highly-regarded trío romántico Tres en Punto, with vocalist Liz Banda, join Harris and add Latin sabor on a traditional Mexican hymn.
Angel Band is slated for domestic release on November 19 by Music Publishers of America. Compact Discs may be ordered through Harris’s online store. The album also will be available on all digital streaming and download platforms.
