Harris is a professional singer/songwriter and cover guitarist. He has played everywhere from concert venues like the Kennedy Center, to bars and restaurants, coffee shops and private events in Washington, DC, NY, St. Louis, and more. He has several hours each of original and cover material. Feel free to contact him for a list of his rock, pop, and folk covers, as well as audio samples.
We hired Harris to play at our engagement ceremony at an outdoor park in an acoustic setting. He impressed us beyond our expectation, and we are so happy that we found him.
Harris is very responsive... and above all, a good listener. He catered to all of our needs. Making changes to his initial play list was a breeze for us, and he even learned a Doors song to play at the event because we mentioned we are fans. We noted that his musicianship is quite eclectic - he played for us using several instruments: guitar, mandolin and the harmonica. And he sings! Harris sings very well.
We had a special request for Harris - that he capture the attention of our guests at a particular time and dedicate a special song to us (the hosts). He delivered on this request flawlessly and it wasn't hard for us to notice that he connected well with our guests.
It is worth a mention that Harris is a very dedicated professional. He played 30 minutes longer than the original agreed upon length of time, as our guests were still around enjoying themselves at our event.
Without a doubt, we would hire Harris again, and totally recommend him.
Price Range: $75 and up
Gig Length: 30 - 240 minutes
What to Expect

Harris Face is a folk-rock-blues artist from Washington, DC, currently residing in Seattle, WA. Percussive guitar, harmonica, and emotive rock dominate his music, drawing comparisons with an acoustic Springsteen, the Counting Crows, and modern roots crusaders like William Elliott Whitmore.
Emerging from a bustling DC singer-songwriter scene, Harris has played at the Kennedy Center, Iota Club and Cafe, The Hamilton, and Rock & Roll Hotel. He has toured the East Coast and Midwest with Adrian Krygowski, and shared the stage with Brothers Lazaroff, The Vespers, and Emma's Revolution.
