The Keith Harris Experience Volume 1

GRAMMY award-winning producer Keith Harris releases solo debut studio album: “The Keith Harris Experience Vol 1”

Keith Harris has been one busy man. He has certainly been creating excitement in the music industry with the release of his two-track EP featuring ‘Get It’ and ‘Happy We Made It’. In addition, he released two subsequent singles: ‘All I Want Is You’ feat. Estelle and ‘Footwerk’. Multi-platinum producer and two-time Grammy award winner Keith Harris is finally revealing his highly anticipated solo debut studio album: The Keith Harris Experience Vol 1. Over the course of his career, Harris has collaborated with a number of world-class superstars. For instance, this includes Madonna, The Black Eyed Peas, John Legend, Usher, and Mariah Carey to name a few. But now the iconic producer has his eyes set on a solo project that will redefine his musical career for the future. Get ready, it’s going to be a wild ride for Keith Harris!


Keith Harris has a saturated portfolio, to say the least. The Keith Harris Experience Vol 1 embodies just that. For instance, it includes a blend of genres he has refined to produce his own sound. He was born in the birthplace of house music at the time of its peak. The Chicago-native has roots embedded in the city’s once-underground niche of house and footwork. Using his decades of experience, the multi-instrumentalist expertly infuses elements from pop, hip-hop, and dance music to develop a signature sound now stamped in his name. It’s unique, funky, and fresh!


Throughout the album, Harris collaborates with a number of renowned and aspiring artists, including UK superstar Estelle, American Idol winner Jordin Sparks, as well as newcomers FAARROW, Chief Wakil, Church Boi, and Tayler Green. Harris’ chemistry among the collaborators is apparent, leading to producing multiple tracks with each artist. He’s a superstar, that’s for sure!


The Tracks 


Previously released last month, ‘All I Want Is You’ was a sultry sneak peek of what to expect in the studio album. For instance, Estelle and Church Boi combine alluring vocals with Harris’ gorgeous horn arrangements to create a groovy R&B, house-inspired track. You’ll have to check that one out ASAP. 


Joining Harris’ roster of collaborators, Jordin Sparks makes an appearance in two of the album’s tracks, ‘Radiating’ and ‘Solid Gold’. In both songs, Harris tailors his production to a more pop-heavy style. Fusing his catchy melodic beats with Sparks’ soaring vocals, the magic they produce is apparent in the heart wrenching finished product. It’s gorgeous, to say the least! She’s one powerhouse singer!


Happy We Made It’, with Somali sister duo FAARROW was released alongside ‘Get It’. These were the first tracks made public off Harris’ solo project. It was known right then and there that Harris was one you should keep your eyes on. His collaboration with FAARROW is a heartfelt song pivoted into a more introspective territory. The sisters use their own immigrant experience to color the track with a personal message of hope and uplift. On the other hand, ‘Get It’ gets into Harris’ upbeat style. The track initially starts off slow with deep bass guitar notes, but then suddenly erupting into a stripped-down sweatbox of a dance track inspired by Chicago’s underground footwork scene. Harris, Chief Wakil, and Church Boi take you on a musical journey, oozing sexy and seductive with a deep and dirty twist. Using his unmatched talent to blend many instruments together in the track, including the piano, saxophone, as well as his iconic drumming, ‘Get It’ is one of Harris’ tell-tale exemplary tracks showcasing his multi-instrumental ability.


In a number of tracks, Harris collaborates with ambitious artists Chief Wakil, Taylor Green, and Church Boi, including the opening track on the EP. The intense collaborations set the tone for the tracks on the album. ‘Push Through It’ starts the album off strong with commanding vocals and hard-hitting beats. Seriously, there’s something about these collaborator’s synergy that catches your attention immediately, which is also apparent in their club-stopper song ‘Like Whoa’. Lastly, these same four acts worked together on ‘Footwerk’ — inspired by the footwork scene itself, the track grasps onto a faster and groovier vibe. This is a powerhouse team!


Overall, The Keith Harris Experience Vol 1 isn’t just a cohesive musical masterpiece, but also Harris’ own personal musical story for an eager audience. Throughout the album’s entirety, you can distinguish a signature upbeat, groovy sound that Keith Harris himself has made his own. Marked as the prolific producer’s debut solo studio album, the finished product has fans and colleagues alike hungry for what’s to come next. You’ll be listening again and again!
