In Their Words: The Big Country EP is my first solo effort after years of working in bands as a sideman around New York. In addition to writing the songs, I played almost all of the instruments on the recordings which, for me, was a great experience because usually no one lets me play the drums. The songs themselves are tunes I’ve written over the last year or so that I thought were good but not necessarily appropriate for the other projects I was working on. A pack of strays. Won’t you please take them in and give them a loving home on your stereo?" — Michael Harlen
