Let’s Do It, the first single from John Harvey’s debut EP Someday, will be released Friday, February 12. His first single is a high-energy dance number with a country swing two-step beat, a modern twist on a classic outlaw country vibe. Lyrically, the song speaks to the excitement of a first love.
John Harvey wrote, recorded, produced and mixed the track. After watching a local country dance band pack the tavern dancefloor with two-stepping couples to tunes by Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard, Harvey was inspired to write a modern version of a two-stepping country song. He’s intention was to get the cover band to record his song, but instead decided to record and release the song first himself.
The EP Someday will include five songs all written and recorded by John Harvey. A second single will be released in March following the release of Let’s Do It. Preview the new single at johnharveysongs.com/music.
