Wreckers to Pursue Solo Projects

Michelle Branch and Jessica Harp of the Wreckers will be putting their work as a duo on hold later this year to pursue solo projects. The long-term future of the duo is unclear, but a spokesman says the solo CDs are merely a creative decision made by the two singer-songwriters. Branch had a successful career as a pop artist when she and Harp teamed up as the Wreckers for Stand Still, Look Pretty, the country album that has sold more than 750,000 copies. During a Monday night (July 23) club appearance in New York City, Branch announced that Harp is engaged to Jason Mowery, the fiddle player in their touring band. The Wreckers still have numerous tour dates scheduled through the end of September, including 19 shows as the opening act on Keith Urban’s tour.
