Harris – Bad Dreams

Nostalgia meets modern melted music on new album from West Coast artist Harris 

PORTLAND, OR – Blend together some R&B with an Alternative twist, some Indie inspired Rock, Hip-Hop, Pop and Reggae, and mix in some Dance/EDM vibes, and you’ve got all the ingredients that make up the stunning music from West Coast artist Harris. But before it gets showcased to the masses, his music needs to be melted.  

That’s the vibe music lovers will get from his new album “Land of the Weird,” which is currently available across all streaming platforms. It’s a project that expertly blends multiple genres and sounds in a way that can only be described as “melted” together. From love songs like “Bad Dreams” to socially conscious tracks like the title track “Land of the Weird” to Afro-beat dance jams like “Runaway Slave,” Harris displays an adept ability to weave together so many different sounds and styles for something that is truly original and intriguing.  

“My music has that throwback, nostalgic-type vibe that morphs nicely into now,” Harris said. “I have listened to many different types of music over the years – so many singers and songwriters and so many different rock, blues and funk bands – I’m inspired by it all. I love electronic music, as well, and quirky sounds. So, I blend all those things together and melt it into the essence of my songcraft.  You put all those things together and melt it down and that’s Harris.” 

Operating since 2010, Harris creates music under his SkyHouse Music label, through which he has collaborated with a diverse group of singers, songwriters, rappers, musicians, lyricists and recording engineers. He said being a freelancer has been a wild ride, as every project has its memorable moments.  

It was Harris’ mother who got him hooked on music at a young age. Her talent as a lyricist came to her easily in the form of poetry and rhyming affirmations, which she would leave for he and his brother to find around their home. Education was also a vital part of Harris’ development as an artist. When he wasn’t shooting a basketball or running with a football, Harris was at the local library visiting the many worlds available to him right at his fingertips. This led to writing poetry about the different worlds, which led to writing lyrics and creating his own worlds and stories for people to enjoy.  

His new album, “Land of the Weird,” reflects much of those early years as a child. He said the overall vibe of the project is genre-busting.  

“It sounds exactly like how I grew up,” he said. “It has some hip-hop and R&B and rock and ballads … and it all fits together rather seamlessly like the singer/songwriter albums I grew up listening to, but with some electronic textures running through it. It’s a project that will resonate with a lot of people right now because it was born out of all the stuff that’s been going on in the past couple of years – social unrest and the pandemic and politics and so many different things that we’re living with now, and the feelings that a lot of people are dealing with through all of that.”

Upcoming artist King Grind tells his story with his new release Mr. PopAten. Although King Grind was born in Cincinnati, he was raised in Atlanta and its influence can be heard in the music as he fuses an array of trap sounds with hard hittin melodies. The use of drums and bass fits well with the internal and external struggles he lyrically expresses. Many will empathize with the plight and perseverance of King Grind, but the project is an open letter reminiscing his life to himself.

New Jersey artist RJM releases Diamond, a perspective on the systematic oppression we face in life. Similar to a diamond, RJM feels the pressure, but channels his opposition into music. He repeatedly tells listeners to “delete the whole system” which encourages individuality and having the courage to do something new. Channeling a boom bap era sound, RJM delivers lyrics through various flows and delivery. The song gives the sense that knowledge is a form of health and through its lyrics the goal is to spread peace. Diamond closely follows the underground scene by not following trends and paving one’s own lane.
