In our world of sugar-sweet, mass produced, auto-tuned, musical McProduct, can soul still exist within the pop realm? Ask Jordan Harman. Somehow he has managed just that. He creates music that speaks something while retaining a great pop sensibility; something increasingly rare today. His laid back grooves will pull you in and, before you know it, you're dancing to the music and singing along.

With influences such as Bill Withers, Donnie Hathaway, D'Angelo, James Brown, The Meters, Otis Redding, and The Roots, there are many different elements to his unique brand of soul.

Chris Van Cleave
Friday 10/12/2018  
Chris performed in his first musical at the age of 12 as Louis in the King and I. He started writing songs in that same year and while in high school was lead singer in a Top 40 band.

His love of acting, singing and songwriting have created a dual career his whole life. Over the next few decades, Chris' career developed as a singer, songwriter, guitarist, actor, writer, visual artist, director and teacher.

As a singer-songwriter, Chris has independently produced seven albums and the score for two musicals. His initial major label release "The Friend Ship" was on Paramount Records with Walker Daniels (original lead in Hair) and Laura Branigan in the folk-rock group "Meadow". See feature article next month.

As a songwriter, Chris is one of the most prolific and eclectic composers within the industry today. His catalog of over six hundred songs (with many hundred more yet to enter) includes styles of folk, rock, country, R & B, jazz, reggae, and musical theater. He has "a keen ear" for rich harmonies and musical arrangements, and many are surprized that, although he has written the score to three musicals, he does not read or write notation!

His strong, expressive voice, ranging from bass into tenor, has been praised by many as rich, soulful, and melodic throughout his career. He has performed in venues throughout the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Europe.

In addition to performing his music in concerts throughout his travels, he has opened for Kansas, Poco, Eric Burdon, Leon Russell, and Buckwheat Zydeco. As a recording artist and songwriter, he has collaborated with many, including Suzi Quatro, Jim McCarty (Yardbirds), Peter Mason (Bee Gees, Dave Dee) and Barry Mason (writer of hits for Tom Jones and Englebert Humperdink).

As an actor-singer, Chris starred in national tours of Hair and Jesus Christ Superstar, performing to thousands in major theaters, coliseums and concert venues throughout the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. While residing in the United Kingdom for seven years, Chris also performed principal roles in the London West End theatre productions of Les Miserables, Chess, and Bernadette. At the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City, he sang and performed the role of Jesus (in Italian and Latin) in Stabat Mater.

Harper is back in Roanoke on his current tour of the US for another night of hard hitting rock. Part harmonica wizard & part rhythmic explorer, this Australian recording artist is a fiery artist who blurs the lines between rock, blues, soul and world music. Undoubtedly one of the best live shows you will see this year.
