David Ryan Harris / Matt Lowell
April 9, 2011
David Ryan Harris is searching for the truth in music. Through his devotion to the truth he hopes to connect to an audience. Raised in Atlanta, he heard music, melodies and stories in his head as a child. It never went away and he hopes it never does. After experimenting with drums, piano and other instruments in his teens he began his love/hate affair with the guitar. 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 he began to understand that music could not and should not be limited by our often narrow views of what it should be. He has had the pleasure of writing, playing and/or producing for numerous artists from Dave Matthews to jazz singer Cassandra Wilson, from Widespread Panic to Santana, from Marc Broussard to Guy Sebastian, from Dionne Farris to John Mayer.
