Harry Gore and the Measles

Alternative Rock/Power Pop
Richmond, Virginia, USA

From Mike Sumpter's BandCamp page: “Harry Gore is an old school Richmond,VA staple in local rock and roll! He and his brothers helped Richmond carve out a long lasting tradition of great music when they got together as 'The Good Guys”. Harry went on to do his own original music and drafted various local musicians into his “Measles bootcamp” to put out some pretty cool stuff.“

Harry Gore's CDBaby Bio: ”“I'm a hardcore rocker who loves Jesus. I'm holdin' on to 16 as long as I can…..” Harry Gore is an American treasure. An established veteran of the alternative music scene, Harry's driving rock'n'roll features powerful hooks, excellent pop melodies and a strong message that both lifts and challenges the listener. Harry's live performances in the Richmond, VA area have made him a celebrity among music fans for years. Now Harry is stepping into the international arena of cyberspace which is the right thing for both Harry and the listeners from all over the world who will be treated to his unique brand of Power Pop. Harry combines the raw edges of punk/wave, the lilting melodies and harmonies of British pop, the ethnic roots of R&B, reggae, ska, and stirs them into a high energy, thought-provoking stew of Pure Americana that reveals roots without copying from them. Harry has been called our generation's Chuck Berry with a Christian conscience - a unique blend of American rock and pop sources delivered with spirit, humor and some of the tastiest rock guitar licks you'll ever hear… -Johnny Proctor …. for fans of: Cheap Trick, Rick Springfield, The Posies, Tommy Keene, Nazz“
