Country-rock singer/songwriter/guitarist Mic Harrison was born and raised in Bradford, TN, where he formed a high-school band with drummer Jeff Bills, Carl Bell, and Jeff Abercrombie. (Bell and Abercrombie later went on to found Fuel.) When the band broke up, Harrison worked on a solo album and took a job at a sawmill, but in 1995 Bills, who had become a member of the alt-country Knoxville band the V-Roys, recruited him to replace departing lead guitarist John Paul Keith. Harrison moved to Knoxville and joined Bills, singer/guitarist Scott Miller, and bassist Paxton Sellers in the band, which was signed to Steve Earle's E-Squared label and later picked up by Warner Bros., and appeared on its second album, All About Town (1998) and its third and final disc, Are You Through Yet? (1999), also contributing several songs to these releases. The V-Roys broke up after a final concert on New Year's Eve, 1999. Meanwhile, Harrison polished recordings he had made in 1993 for his debut solo album, Don't Bail, released on Lynn Point Records, a label he had formed with Bills, in 1999.
In 2000, Harrison formed a new band, the Faults, including Sellers, guitarist Robbie Trosper, and drummer Jason Peters. Lynn Point released the band's self-titled debut album in 2001, but the Faults turned out to be short-lived, and after they split Harrison joined Superdrag, appearing on their album Last Call for Vitriol (Arena Rock, 2002). When Superdrag went on hiatus in 2003, Harrison returned to his solo career, recording his second solo album, Pallbearer's Shoes (Valley Entertainment, June 1, 2004). His third album, Push Me on Home, credited to Mic Harrison & the High Score, appeared on Lynn Point on February 13, 2007. The backup band, consisting of Trosper, drummer Brad Henderson, and bassist Vance Hilliard, had previously released two albums of its own on Lynn Point.~ William Ruhlmann
