TONES OF A NATIVE SON:
Sir Harrison was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona and is a full blood Navajo (Dine'). He started playing music at the age of eight. He wanted to play trumpet but it was an instrument his parents could not afford at that time. Not getting the instrument of choice his mother purchased a clarinet. It didn't matter what instrument he played Harrison pushed his ability regardless, winning awards and keeping his first chair status.
It was not until his early years of High School that he picked up the guitar. His fascination with the guitar lead him to play many styles; Heavy Metal, Rock, Classical and the one style of music he fell in-love with, the blues.
After graduating high school Harrison pursued a career in Video Photojournalism. Again, drive and ambition would take over and after five years in broadcasting he would become an award winning Photojournalist. His most prestige's are two Edward R. Murrow awards. Lets not forget that he was a mentor and instructor for local educational programs during this time.
But, time has away of reminding you of whats important and the path you should be walking.
Sir Harrison first took the stage in 1999 at a blues jam in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Every week he returned and people wanted more. It was time for him to learn, grow and work with other musicians on stage. His first band would take the name. "Colorblind". A power trio that was complimented by the tasteful bass lines of producer, recording engineer, Leo Okeke. In the summer of 2000 Colorblind brought the house down at the historic Cain's Ballroom during the Tulsa Blues Fest. The audience was absorbed and overwhelmed by the soulful guitar licks and energy of the newly formed band.
All the years of playing behind closed doors Harrison was finally set free. He never stopped playing and never stopped playing the blues. The energy that Buddy Guy, Albert King, and SRV played with was from their soul. The music said it all and that's what Harrison was looking for. He found it in break-ups, hitting rock bottom, and the challenges of every day life. But, it's not all about sadness; It's the positve out-look on life, finding new love and living a life that you desire. To play music full-time was Harrison's new dream even if that meant leaving his career. He made that courageous decision in 2001.
The current release of Sir Harrison's first self-produced Cd is a show case of his over-all abilities as a musician, writer, composer, and producer. He took on this challenge to get an understanding of how the recording process works and what approach to take on his next Cd.
Sir Harrison and the Blues Kings was formed in 2004 in Flagstaff, Arizona. The band is fronted by lead guitarist and vocalist Harrison Begay. His current members are: bass player Jimmy Mack, hammond B3 organ player Tom McMillon, drummer? Still searching...
Sir Harrison's stage presents, performance, and music has attracted a broad range of audience of all ages. He guitar playing is straight from the soul. Some would compare him to Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix, Robert Cray. But, Sir Harrison has a unique sound. His guitar playing has a signature, a defined sound thats all his.
