Chris Harrington - You the Provider Review
by Gary Schwind

Chris Harrington has teamed up with a tight rhythm section composed of Jason Mackenroth, (who has played drums for Henry Rollins and Daniel Lanois) and Jacques Wait on this album dedicated to seek the legacy of Harrington's deceased father.

The best example of Harrington's search for his dad's legacy is in "In the Mystery," in which he tells the story of poring over memories of his dad and sings "In the mystery of those I love, I live to know who you were."

Now, at the risk of sounding like a callous, heartless crank, I have to say that none of these songs left an indelible mark on me. I am sure these songs are very meaningful for Chris Harrington, but they all kind of run together and there isn't one song that really stands out to me.

Don't get me wrong. All of these songs are well done. Harrington is quite a talented lyricist and his voice, which sounds like a hybrid of Doug Hopkins from Gin Blossoms and Kevin Griffin of Better than Ezra, is powerful but not overpowering. In other words, all the tools are there and I think Chris Harrington could have a prolonged career as a singer/songwriter.
