"Cross Harp Chronicles"

We have received your CD. Without reservation, it was one of the tastiest musical treats we have enjoyed this year. We particularly liked the layering and texturing of each track. We were also taken with your use of musical instruments too infrequently used in the Blues, i.e. the flute and the organ in the same track... So unaccustomed to hearing the Blues so arranged, we listened to your CD several times and each time got something new from listening... The only fault we found with this effort was the length of the CD. At just a little over 35 minutes, it left us wanting more. This for us, is the true mark of good music. Well done.
- Dave King


Michael has recorded two albums: Lost in the Blues is his latest album, rock and roll guitar blues at its finest. Easy Money, blues with slight jazz undertones, was initially recorded and released as an LP in 1980, and has been digitally remastered and released July, 2006. They are available for online purchase through his website, www.michaelharrisonblues.com, cdbaby.com and Amazon.com (search for Michael Harrison Blues). MP3s from both albums can be purchased from Applie iTunes.

Michael's music is receiving worldwide airplay on blues and jazz shows. A current listing is available on his mySpace account: www.myspace.com/michaelharrisonblues2.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Michael has developed a style all his own... He has many talented guitar players to thank for helping with that: BB King, Jimi Hendrix, Tommy Bolin, Buddy Guy, Stevie Ray, Muddy Waters, Johnny Lee, Clapton, Johnny Winters and many other great players... Bob Marley's influence helped Michael learn to put his feelings into his vocals.

He met the great Jimi Hendrix in 1968. Hendrix showed him some licks, and as Michael puts it, "I didn't get it for about ten years."

Michael recorded his first album, Easy Money , in 1979, and tried very hard to get it out there - almost impossible as an independent artist back in the day! There are some great musicians on the album, along with unique tunes and arrangements, great sax, keyboards and guitar work. Consequently, Easy Money has been remastered and released again this year, in limited edition.

Michael has traveled the U.S., playing with some great people along the way... Ron Bland, Toy Caldwell (Marshall Tucker Band), Tommy Bolin, John Lee Hooker, Mark Naffler (Butterfield Blues Band), Charlie Musslewhite, Katie Moffat, Jim Ridl, Steve Watts, and many great Blues players during his time in California.

Fans are excited about the release of his new album, Lost in the Blues , a wonderful mix of some favorite blues songs and original songs with a variety of styles and tempo that will have you rockin'!
