How did you meet and what’s the story behind your band name?
Jim: We all knew each other for a good long while playing in different bands in Glasgow. That sort of happens in a small city like ours. Anna was a friend of Dave’s who he had recommended to me for a recording project called Green Peppers. I heard her sing and her voice blew me away. She inspired me to write an album for her to sing and so we ended up with Harmony Springs.
The name of the band came from a patch on an old winter fleece Dave wore rather a lot. Not sure if he still does….
How would you describe your music?
Jim: Dynamic. Beautiful. Astounding.
What have you been up to so far and what can we expect over the coming months?
Jim: Basically playing shows and writing new material. We’ve actually started recording our next collection of songs, so it’s all go around here.
If you could duet with anybody who would it be and why?
Anna: I would have to say Neil Young having been a huge fan since discovering After the Gold Rush in my dads music collection when I was young. Myself and Dave recorded a demo of Only Love Can Break Your Heart to give to Jim before he asked me to sing on two tracks for his Green Peppers project so I have a lot to thank Mr Young for.
What’s your desert island disc and why would you take this one album?
Jim: One album only? Personally speaking, I would find that an incredibly difficult choice to make. It would have to be a toss-up between Elvis Presley’s Sun Sessions or The Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds..somehow I always return to them, the songs, the instrumentation, the voices.
