My Name Is Brian Harrison. Welcome to my artist page. My history lies mostly in Portland , Oregon . My music history starts very young taking classical piano lessons. As high school approached , the love for guitar became the catalyst to motivate me to start playing in bands. Dirty Rhythm , an arena style hair metal band was my first real label experience . Produced by Paul Dean of Loverboy back in 1989-1990 Dirty Rhythm "Feel the Fire" was released in America and Japan. Another cd , independently released as "Never Cleaned Up" followed and then shortly afterwards the music scene changed. I dabbled in the seattle grunge era , played in pop punk bands , heavy grind core music, and then landed into a period of reflection. During this time I wrote my first instrumental CD "Brian Harrison , Nine Lives and Ten Songs". Being attracted to acoustic music, started the process that lead to my current CD "Brian Harrison And The Last Draw. I played the bulk of all the stringed instruments that included some slide, banjo (6 string) and some mandolin...all new instruments for me I and have always wanted to learn more with those twangy thangs!...There are a few appearances on this CD from friends to family members. This music of mine has sparked a place in my soul that I hope to share with others and I hope it connects with people. It certainly will not be the first of it's kind. With a new cd in the tracking stage, I am excited about the future. I am also currently the guitarist with Andrew Paul Woodworth www.andrewpaulwoodworth.com
