Nice to meet you. My name is David Ryan Harris.
Born in Chicago. Raised in Atlanta. Live in Los Angeles.
I heard music, melodies and stories in my head as a child.
They never went away and I hope they never do.
After experimenting with drums, piano and other instruments in my teens I began my love/hate affair with the guitar.
So, there it is: I am a soul singer who plays guitar.
And sometimes: I am a guitarist who sings soulfully.
Drawn to the blues after hearing songs by Son House, Robert Johnson and others and growing up at a time when Prince, Parliament/Funkadelic, Stevie Wonder and other musicians were stretching the boundaries of popular music I began to understand that music could not and should not be limited by our often narrow views of what it should be.
Signed to Elektra in 2000, with a band called Brand New Immortals and released Tragic Show. Label folded. Band followed suit.
Self-released “The Bittersweet” in 2007.
Since then I have had the pleasure of writing with, playing with and/or producing artists from Dave Matthews, Cassandra Wilson, Derek Trucks, Santana, Marc Broussard, Guy Sebastian and John Mayer.
This is still the beginning.
Yes, it’s nice to meet you. My name is David Ryan Harris.
