Bio

"The most noticeable feature of our music is really our variety. We played a gig last week, you know a coffee house thing, low key, and this lady came up to me and said, 'What don't you guys play? You go from swing, to folk to The Girl from Ipanema.' I didn't know what to say but "thanks" I took it as a real compliment."
- Eric Harris

The Eric Harris Group really began a folk rock band with jazz fusion elements called Luminous, but as many projects inevitably do, schedule conflicts and creative differences ultimately resulted in its untimely demise. In the wake of this, Eric Harris, (vocalist and primary songwriter for Luminous) decided to release a solo album in the folksy vein from whence he had come."Left on Cleveland Ave.", was the album, and really marks the beginning of The Eric Harris Group as it exists today. With the influence of his current co-conspirators (Chris McGee, Isaac Weese, Kell Dodson, and past members Neal Sawhney and Stacey Halstead), the Eric Harris Group has evolved into an ensemble that covers a wide array of styles, while still maintaining the folksy charm its fans have come to expect. Lately, The Eric Harris Group is working on completing its most ambitious project yet. The album Toast (due for completion sometime in late 2007), is to be the album that really showcases EHG's departure from its folk balladry, with songs ranging from hard swing, to gentle bossa with a little bit of rock, and afro beat for flavor. Some tracks from this album have also appeared in the Red Duck Pictures feature "Imperfections," and will be appearing in Dradelfish Productions "The Pink Elephant."

As for the future of The Eric Harris Group, everything is looking up. Having recently joined the Frog and Toad Records family, all the members look forward to completing both "Toast," and a live compilation this year entitled simply "Live in Athens, GA." "I'm in it to win it man," says Kell Dodson when asked about the future of the band. Although he chuckles, it seems that this sympathy is not only sincere, but shared by the all members of the EHG.
