Under The Rock Presents: Jaimee Harris

July 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$23

July’s addition to the amazing Under the Rock series hosted by UT professor Aaron Rochlen!

Jaimee Harris began cultivating Boomerang Town in 2016, a time of great loss for many in the Americana community, with the songwriter losing several musicians close to her. A shift in the nation’s political landscape had ushered in a new level of cultural polarization and for someone who grew up in a small town outside of Waco, Texas, Harris believed the values instilled by her parents were not entirely in line with how many were viewing, and vilifying, Christians. As a person in recovery, Harris has had to re-evaluate her own connection to faith and find strength in a higher power. It was from the intersection of these social, personal, and political currents that the album was born. While themes of addiction and grief permeate sections of the record, it echoes hope in the face of the darkness. Boomerang Town understands that love and grief are two sides of the same coin. These deep and meaningful themes combined with her extreme musical talent set up for a powerful Under The Rock episode – not to be missed.

Under The Rock is an innovative new series showcasing acoustic performances from top-level local artists. Facilitated by Dr. Aaron Rochlen, a Professor, Psychologist, & connected music guy, each concert features lyrical discussions and ideas for how audience member can learn, reflect, and relate from the listening experience. An award-winning presenter, “Doc Rock” frequently uses music in his courses & clinical work.
