With their self-titled album now released into the big wide world via Fluff & Gravy record label, The Harmed Brothers have revealed their new video for In the wind which was filmed in newly opened Morehouse Barbers, in the North Portland neighbourhood of St. Johns. They have just started hosting sessions and have already had Howe Gelb stop by.
The reasons for using such an unusual venue is down to Adam Morehouse, the co-owner of Morehouse Barbers…before he was a barber he was a Harmed Brother, as revealed by Fluff & Gravy.
Way back around 2009, when The Harmed Brothers were still in their infancy, Eugene-based percussionist Adam Morehouse received a phone call from North Carolina. It was Ray Vietti on the phone, saying that they’d like him to join the band, and that they needed him immediately to hit the road with them. He had played in a band that had opened for them a few times, and had struck up a friendship with Ray and Alex Salcido. Problem was, Adam had a job that he didn’t feel comfortable leaving, and was planning on going to barbering school, so he turned them down. 2 weeks later Ray and Alex were knocking on his door, and they weren’t going away without a “yes’. Reluctantly, Adam quit his job, sold his stuff, and hit the road. In the end, the touring life proved to be too stressful for Adam, and his fear of tornadoes (made problematci by the band constantly touring the Midwest) proved to be too much for him. He ended up leaving the band and following up on his original plan. He was going to barbering school.
Fast forward to 2017… After working for other people for years, Adam and his friend Kurt Foster decide to open their own place, Morehouse Barbers, in the North Portland neighborhood of St. Johns. On March 3, the shop opened it’s doors, and of course, The Harmed Brothers were there for the grand opening to record a video.
