Michael started playing the guitar when he was about 9 years old, and is grateful his grandmother believed in his talent. He has developed a style that is all his own... and says, 'can't help myself, I love playing the guitar!' He has many great 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. Michael recorded his first album in 1979, Easy Money, and tried very hard to get it out there, as an independent artist with his own label... almost impossible back in the day! There are some great musicians on the album and some unique arrangements and tunes, consequently, Easy Money has been remastered and released again this year, in limited edition. Michael has traveled the U.S., and has been fortunate in his life, playing with some great people along the way... Ron Bland, Toy Caldwell (Marshall Tucker Band), Tommy Bolin, Jim Ridl, Steve Watts, John Lee Hooker, Mark Naffler (Butterfield Blues Band), Charlie Musslewhite, Katie Moffat, and many great Blues players during his time in California. Fans are excited about the new release of Easy Money - a wonderful mix of original songs by Michael Harrison - with a guitar that sings, great sax, keyboards and arrangements you're sure to enjoy! Lost in the Blues, Michael's new album, is a collection of old blues songs and original songs, with a variety of styles and beautiful guitar work that you will love listening to again and again! Thanks for listening ...
