"when Andrew and Austin
young heavyweight-class beards
stepped into the ring at Pasquale's
banjo and guitar, weaving and bobbing
fingers dancing across the acoustic canvas
channeling Simon and Garfunkel:
in the clearing stands a boxer
it was a combination punch
little did they realize
how their pure voices stung like a bee
and how they brought some comfort here
the night before they buried The Greatest"

-from John Rennell Secor's Boomerang Girl

"I haven't heard a band performing with this much creative energy since The Beatles were touring."

-Raymond McLain, The McLain Family Band


A.p. Harbor is the vehicle for the music of Andrew Preston, singer-songwriter and producer from Van Lear, Kentucky. Preston has been a featured songwriter by the International Bluegrass Music Association, lecture faculty for the Appalachian Writer’s Workshop, and nominee for the 2018 Audioverse Awards. With works spanning hundreds of performances through four countries and eight LPs, Preston and his collective of bandmates have become recognizable mainstays of Appalachia’s burgeoning indie scene. With the punky drum stylings of Matt Holleran, the eclectic guitar melodies of Michael Jarvi, the groovy bass of Chloe Mace, and distinctive, folksy vocals of Mary Morris, A.p. Harbor’s sound is as varied and whimsical as its players. Among their hallmarks: eclectic vocals, offbeat instrumentation, and literary lyricism steeped in storytelling, all balanced by a healthy penchant for the surreal and absurd.
