The Wreckers' Jessica Harp marries

Monday, February 4, 2008 – Jessica Harp, one-half of The Wreckers, married violinist and band mate Jason Mowery today in Franklin, Tenn. at an art gallery.

"Growing up you and your girlfriends talk about getting married, who you will marry, the kind of wedding you want - today exceeded all of my expectations," said Harp. "Jason and I feel incredibly lucky to have such amazing family and friends to share this wonderful moment with."

The couple chose to keep the nuptials intimate by inviting their family and closest friends. A multitude of candles and special lighting illuminated the ceremony, while flowers were kept simple. Chocolate and aqua were the bride's colors of choice for the occasion. As a special touch, the couple had guests supply a list of their favorite songs to be played at the reception.

Harp along with Michelle Branch as The Wreckers released their debut album "Stand Still Look Pretty" in May 2006. The album included "Leave The Pieces," "My Oh My" and "Tennessee." In 2006, The Wreckers were the first duo to reach number 1 with their debut single, "Leave the Pieces," since Brooks & Dunn in 1991 and the first female duo to reach the top with their debut single in more than 53 years.

In December 2007, they released the live CD/DVD "Way Back Home: Live From New York," recorded during a sold-out show at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City on July 13, 2007. In late 2007, both Harp and Branch announced they would release solo albums on Warner in the coming months.

Way Back Home: Live From New York City CD review - Way Back Home: Live From New York City
The timing for the release of The Wreckers's live CD/DVD package from July is strange to say the least. For one, not many bands put out a live record when only one studio album has been released, especially when the live set mostly includes that debut disc with little new to offer. Also it is well known that there may not be a second studio album as both Michelle Branch and Jessica Harp are branching out (pun intended) to solo projects. There no denying these two girls have great chemistry »»»
Stand Still, Look Pretty CD review - Stand Still, Look Pretty
Prior to forming The Wreckers, Michelle Branch had two successful pop-rock albums, while Jessica Harp was trying to find her break as a singer-songwriter in Nashville and singing backup for Branch. This mixes those two sensibilities in an album that's not quite country, but not quite pop. There are definitely country tracks on the disc. "My, Oh My" lays its cheerful nostalgia for the not too distant past over exuberant fiddle and Dobro. "Crazy People" is a story song in a classic country vein, »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: LSD tour provides a lot of highs – This was not your grandkids' country, that's for sure. Even the name of the tour - the LSD Tour - was a throwback (albeit far before the principals were making music). But make no mistake about it. With the ever cool country traditionalist Dwight Yoakam, the country with some rock and blues and rabble rousing of Steve Earle thrown in and the... »»»
Concert Review: Alvin, Gilmore fortunately get together – Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore had known each other for decades, but it wasn't until last year that they toured together in a guitar pull setting. What started as a small Texas tour mushroomed into points east and west and eventually the release earlier this month of their blues-based disc, "Downey to Lubbock." And now we have the... »»»

Bigger CD review - Bigger
Sugarland is back with "Bigger," its first studio album in nearly a decade. And its arrival says more about branding, than anything else. Although his voice is heard often enough on this album to make his presence felt, it's still difficult to get away from seeing Kristian Bush in the Oates to Hall or Ridgeley to Michael role in this duo.  »»»

There may be no other CD title this year quite as apropos as this one. Things have indeed changed for American Aquarium since their previous studio album (2015's underrated "Wolves"). For one thing 80 per cent of the band quit, leaving only lead vocalist and songwriter BJ Barham. »»»
