World-class singer, guitarist and songwriter Allan Harris is best known for his interpretations of jazz standards. With smooth vocals and guitar-styling easily crossing genres, from jazz to rock to blues, Allan is unquestionably one of the most versatile talents in contemporary jazz and blues music.
“Harris is a velvet-voiced jazz singer, with a savvy manner and music in his veins.” – Variety
Tony Bennett has called him “my favorite singer.” Very few vocalists in the industry have his charismatic combination of soulful yet elegant phrasing, exciting musicianship, and dynamic stage presence.
Allan has cultivated a global following, playing for packed audiences and receiving outstanding reviews throughout the United States, Europe, Russia and the Far East. A three-time winner of the New York Nightlife Award for “Outstanding Jazz Vocalist,” Allan is regularly featured at the world’s great music festivals. The Miami Herald wrote that Harris’ voice and demeanor “project the warmth of Tony Bennett, the bite and rhythmic sense of Sinatra, and the sly elegance of Nat ‘King’ Cole.”
