Hello & welcome music fans, to www.s-a-harris.com!
S. A. Harris (AKA: Shawn A. Harris) is a native son of the Rogue Valley in Southern Oregon. At eight years old, he discovered a natural ear for music when he sat down at a piano and begin to play, as if he had been doing so for a few years. Music is the internal rhythm that drives his soul.
In 1978 at ten years old, I got my first job playing music in front of a music store. The first time a crowd gathered around me, I knew that this was what I was born to do. In my teens I started a "50's - 70's Rock Review band" that played all the hits. Today, I am a multi-instrumentalist who plays all of the instruments on my releases, except for the occasional guest artist's feature.
Blues & Classic Rock have heavily influenced my musical vision. It was the sounds of the Original Fleetwood Mac's Peter Green that made me pick up a guitar. I was taken by the tone and raw emotion that he could create when playing and singing. It turned me on to the Blues and I never looked back!
Music is the very essence of my soul! It is the universal language that touches every living soul on the planet in a deep and personal way! I play because it brings me joy to have such a powerful means of expression at my finger tips, so I hope you enjoy listening as much as I've enjoyed playing music. Thank you for your interest in this journey, I'm humbled by those who like my art!
Keep the Blues Alive!
S. A. Harris
