A.J. Harrison - Singer / Songwriter / Author
January 2, 2015, will mark 46 years as a Recording Artist, for A.J. Harrison. 2015 promises to be a big year for A.J. and his fans. Two new Albums, two new Novels, a few concerts and television appearances, and even a possible new singing partner.
A.J. Harrison started singing for live audiences on January 2, 1969. He has written over 400 songs, including their words, music and full arrangement. He sings, plays an Ovation 12-String Guitar, plays limited Midi, and enjoys communicating with his fans. He has won a number of awards for his music and has recorded with many noteworthy studios, such as Mix-O-Lydian Studios, in New Jersey, Airway Studios, in New Jersey, Songbird Studios, in Atlanta, Georgia, Twain Studios, in New Jersey, and Studio 78, in Georgia. A.J. has appeared on numerous television shows and has satisfied concert audiences for decades.
In the 80's, A.J. wrote two songs of defense for then 13 year old AIDS victim, Ryan White. All proceeds went to Ryan and his family for medical expenses and everyday living. An unexpected friendship happened. The press and news media labeled A.J. Ryan's "big brother", a label A.J. very proudly wore. Now, 25 years after Ryan's unfortunate death, A.J. is still very touched by the memories of the profound friendship the two shared and will be releasing a book about their friendship and experiences called, "My Life He Did Touch". Ryan died in 1990. (No release date set yet).
A.J. is also releasing a new album... "A.J. Harrison: His Greatest Hits", which will contain about 17 of his most popular songs from over a span of 45 years. (Several of these songs were re-recorded fresh just for this album).
A.J. Harrison was a part of the NBC and CBS Radio Networks for over 3 years, Radio DJing. He eventually went back to his music full-time, but has thought about going back into radio several years from now, doing a local late night talk show.
He also tried his hand at acting for a few years, but it didn't work out as he had hoped. He says movies were too time consuming and he had great trouble memorizing lines. He did, however, enjoy doing television and radio commercials, including voice-over work, but found it still took time away from his real passion: Music.
Within the next year, other albums will include a Live Concert Album, a Motion Picture Sound-Track Album, and a Tribute to Simon and Garfunkel Album. (Art Garfunkel is A.J.'s Mentor).
