Wild Strawberries

Subtitle

Wild Strawberries is a Canadian pop band made up of married couple Roberta Carter-Harrison (vocals) and Ken Harrison, who are also, respectively, a physiotherapist and a doctor by trade. Over the years the Harrison's have built up a significant and loyal fan base, beginning with their self-released indie cassette "Carving Wood Spectacles" and subsequently their 1992 debut CD, Grace. 1993 EP, "Life Sized Marilyn Monroe", was the perfect precursor to their follow-up breakthrough album, "Bet You Think I'm Lonely". Both albums spawned title track hit singles, the latter garnering them a Juno nomination for Best New Band. After signing to Nettwerk in 1995, and seeing their album "Heroine" hit gold, the Wild Strawberries found themselves in a whirlwind of mainstream success, with more radio hits, an intense tour schedule (incl. Lilith Fair dates) and an ever growing fan base who could not get enough of the charming couple with their captivating brand of moody "Arty-Pop". According to Ken Harrison, the writer/producer of the pop/rock duo "we kind of feel like we owe something to the people who have stuck with us for so long". Inspired by their fans they released the album Deformative years in 2005. The happily married high school sweethearts live and work in a small hamlet outside of Toronto, Ontario with their children. They are still involved with music but have no musical releases on the immediate horizon. They hope to re-connect with their fans here and acquire some new ones who appreciate their alternative approach to music.
