Brooklyn-born, Harlem-based vocalist, guitarist, bandleader and composer Allan Harris has become an accomplished and compelling singer since his beginnings and is now a first call vocalist. His latest release, Black Bar Jukebox, displays Harris’ impressive and soulful vocal presence as well as his writing ability, with many being penned himself. His soulful, silken bari-tenor voice dances and trances throughout an eclectic spectrum of moods and grooves and proves that Harris can sing any style expressively and make it fully his own.
