Harold Bernard Daniels was born in Dothan Alabama.
As a youngster, he was deeply influenced by his dad who was the band director at Carver High School in Dothan. Sunday morning was always an inspiration, at North Highland Baptist Church, the spirit of the Lord was in the place, Harold was a member of the youth choir at age 7. He loved to sing. In High school the inspiration continued with a biography of the life of Mahalia Jackson. After that presentation he gave to his English class he knew that
he was destined to sing about God''s saving Grace.
Harold was a member of the local Hawk- Houston Boy''s Club . The club was in the heart of an area called Baptist bottom, the Church was on one corner, and the night clubs were on the other. The Club Capri housed the Boy''s Club during the summer days and at night the Club Capri was open for the booze and the bands. The boy''s would hide out in the back of the club under stacks of tables and chairs to have a quick glimpse of the entertainers.
At Club Capri, Harold gained a lot of education while talking to musicians who played there. It was there he met
Tyrone Davis. Mr. Davis encouraged the young Harold by taking a moment to share his valuable experience. There were many more stars he met at the Club Capri. The greatest experience was the evening he met the Manhattans. At age 17 Harold politely introduced him self to Gerald Austin and Blue Lovett. They found him to be a well mannered young man who wanted to sing. Bob Riley of Capitol records was also in the club that evening . Bob called some friends in Memphis Tennessee, William and Walter Johnson, two weeks later Harold was put on a Greyhound bus Memphis bound. In Memphis he became a member of the singing group DD Joseph and David,(Joseph was Harold''s stage name) Harold sung several of their leads, including one of their single: "You Gave Me Peace of Mind".This was on a local Memphis label. DD, Joseph and David toured with the Manhattans as their opening act.
Harold made a transition after being very unhappy with the night club life. He moved to Atlanta to start college. He wanted to keep his voice strong so he joined the band, Southern Railway. Bill Lowery, the president of the Lowery Music Publishing Group became another influence in Harold''s musical identity. Mr Lowery , personally gave Harold lessons in writing good songs and lyrics that would soothe the soul and sell records. To name a few songs that was published by Mr Lowery were as follows .
Elvis Presley''s "Walk A Mile In My Shoes", " I Never Promised You a Rose Garden",Brook Benton''s "Rainy Night In Georgia", "Spooky", Alisa Bridges "I Love The Night Life",(Disco Hit) . John Lennon recorded one of Lowery''s songs, "The Tam''s "Be Young ", Harold was in good company. Harold recorded an album for Mr. Lowery''s label entitled "Southern Track Records", in 1991 and released the singles, "Don''t Snatch It Back", written by Harold and "If You only Knew", written by Alisa Bridges. The recordings received a lot of air play from New York to California. In Atlanta WVEE (V-103), (KISS 104), and WAOK added the single to their morning and drive time play list. The songs made it to different countries around the world London, Germany, and Japan. In England it is considered a classic because of the old R&B style in which it was recorded.
Harold also participated in the writing of an album for Martha High ,who was a James Brown alumnus. From this collaboration came the song: "Show Down On The Dance Floor". This single is still being played in Australia and Switzerland. In addition to these accomplishments, Harold has sung on a studio project with The New Commodores and was the opening act on stage with the actor Fred Williamson ,who hosted the King Cobra Malt Liquor Pageant . During that same year Harold performed in a show case
for Columbia Records and Giant Records. For the past 10 years the Lord has given new mercies through the out pouring of new songs, some of them you will hear on this debut album "Eternity".
