Josh Harty with Margot $10

Iain Patience, Elmore Magazine, 2016

“Josh Harty is a mid-West, singer-songwriter with a keen eye, observant lyrics and a fine, driving guitar-style that pulses with feeling and fire. . .Harty’s fretwork is crisp, zingy and always compelling, catching you unawares almost with hints of traditional country in the mix; Chet seems to hang in the background balance at times, followed by ole Doc Watson before he twists the tail, snapping free with a trace of Knopfler at his best and a clear grip of the very fundamentals of good quality modern country music/ Americana.. . . “

Margot is a six-piece Americana rock band from Minneapolis. Lyrically their songs harken back to the socially conscious folk music of the 60s and 70s, while their sound is a rock-n-roll infused Americana that’s just as likely to burst into wild three-part harmony as it is to wind down to somber acoustic performances. 

Troublesongs, the band's debut, was released in June 2018. Sonically the record moves between straightforward rock-n-roll inspired Americana to string-heavy singer songwriter alt-country.
