"I released it digitally last year and I used it mainly like a demo," says Kim Harris of her six-song folk debut She'd Say Otherwise. "I was living in Amherst and I never got the chance to have a release show." Now that she's back in the city, she's rectifying that situation with an all-star lineup of guests at the Coho on Friday including Don Brownrigg, Gabrielle Papillon, Heather Green, Mo Kenney and Dana Beeler. "My friends Kristan Moore and Dustin Clarke have this studio called Action/Adventure and Kristan said, 'Why don't you come in and get these out of your brain?' We went on a weekend and recorded 11 songs. The EP is six songs, is super-raw and sort of embarrassing in a way." This winter Harris will record a full-length with Dale Murray. "It feels like I have evolved a lot, " she says. "People seem to like the songs and you have to let them be what they are."

w/Don Brownrigg, Friday August 17 at The Company House, 2202 Gottingen Street, 9pm, $10
