Born in Detroit, MI, Robert Harrisâs musical career started at 12 when he began studying trumpet in junior high school. Harris began playing guitar at 16, and was soon playing at coffee houses and lounges in the Detroit area. When he was 20, Harris joined a seven-piece R&B group as the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist, playing covers by Tower of Power, Chicago, Earth Wind and Fire, and other groups.
Leaving Detroit for Seattle, Harris toured the West Coast with a band called Vocal Point. He was soon joined by drummer and friend Steve Takahashi, who became Vocal Pointâs drummer. Harris and Takahashi relocated to Los Angeles, where Harris formed a group to showcase his original compositions. Harris was quickly signed to West Records and his first CD, âIâm Coming Backâ was slated for distribution through Qwest Records. But, as often happens in LA, the deal did not come to fruition.
Undaunted, Harris worked as a studio musician, performed at various venues in LA, and expanded his musical talents. Now also a producer and arranger - and the head engineer at the control panels â Harris produced several well received independent label projects. In 1985, Harris founded Fast Trak Recording Studios and spent the next five years honing his producing, arranging, and engineering skills. Harris sold FastTrak in 1991 and moved to Central Florida, stating, âI really enjoy the engineering side of the business, but not as much is I enjoy playing and writing music.â In between his own recording and performing schedule, Harris continues to produce an occasional independent project in his state-of-the-art digital recording studio.
Although mostly self-taught, for the last 25 years Harris has studied guitar through the National Guitar Workshop, including studying several Jazz curriculums in chord harmony, improvisation, and theory that were developed by Jody Fisher. Harris was fortunate to have had the opportunity to be tutored by George Peckam, one the worlds most renowned vocal instructors.
Harrisâs time is now devoted to recording and live performances. Harris has several steady solo engagement at some of the most prestigious resorts and restaurants in Florida. His band, The Robert Harris Group, has been featured at recent festivals including the WLOQ Summer Jam Jazz Concert, the New Smyrna Jazz Festival, and the Winter Park Fall Arts Festival. Venues in the Orlando area that showcase Robert Harris Group include Blue Martini, Dexterâs in Winter Park, the Glo Lounge, Why Not Café, and Back Fin.
Robert Harrisâs newest recording project entitled âCool Breezeâ (Canyon Lake Records, 2004) showcases both his talent on the guitar and his engineering and producing skills. This unique and uplifting album features Harrisâs cheerful melodies and, according to www.SmoothJazz.com Sandy Shore president and founder, âA cool breeze of Smooth Jazz is exactly what the latest project from Robert Harris brings to us. The nylon-string, acoustic guitar player has a superb sense of melody with articulate playing reminiscent of Peter White and Earl Klugh.â
Robert Harris Group is available for private engagements and club dates; to book the group, e-mail or call (407) 496-3922.
