Trio Of One – Independent

Trio Of One was Harkness’s first completely independent solo venture.  Still composing at that time for the trio format – two acoustic guitars and bass – these songs are a very honest glimpse into Sean’s world at that time.  Recorded in 2000 in Los Angeles, Harkness multi-tracked all of the guitars and bass.  Brian Camelio plays one of the guitars on his own composition “Reunion”, and Sean is joined by L.A. bassist Chad Watson on the Brasilian flavored “Convidado”.
