Harkness Knight / Bio

This collection of songs unites the organic sophistication of Sean Harkness’ guitars with Eric Knights’ impassioned saxophone.

Drawing on influences as diverse as James Taylor, Steely Dan, Marvin Gaye, Jeff Beck, and Kirk Whalum, acoustic guitars and unprocessed saxophone define the exciting and infectious sound.

In each song there is a story told; only it is a guitar, saxophone, or interplay of the two that tells it. Songs without words need to have a more compelling melody, and these two testify with heart and soul.

Whether they perform as a duo [Tuck & Patti style] or with their cream-of-the-crop NYC backing band this act is equally at home sharing a stage with Dave Matthews or David Sanborn.
