Rick Harris is a man who truly loves music. What he loves even more is being able to share his love with others. Rick has been a musician ever since he was a young boy playing home-made instruments in his backyard with his brother, while the neighbohood kids took audience.

As a young man, Rick left his birthplace of Petersburg, Virginia to pursue a music career. He teamed up with Rob Base and EZ-Rock and performed as a lead singer. He is known for his vocals in the Rob Base hit "Turn It Out" (1989). Since then, after many years of performing and being on the road, Rick had to deal with some health issues that he needed time to deal with and he took a pause from the music industry.

Just recently, Rick has decided to come back out and share some of the many songs he has composed over the years with the assistance of his nephew. Together they started a micro-talk show called "Rick's Real Guitar Talk" and put together an EP entitled "The Ebony EP" dedicated to his one and only daughter, Ebony.
Rick has composed hundreds of amazing songs of all genres over the years. He would love to be able to share some of these with the world. The world needs more GOOD music. He would love to be able to share it.

Rick is asking his friends and fans who would love to hear all the GOOD music that he wants to release to help him with the expenses of music creation, and more importantly music video creation for the Ebony EP tracks and beyond... Rick is an independent musician, and he wants to stay that way so that he is able to release new music constantly without restraints. 
Rick would like to use these funds immediately to create high quality videos for songs like "Ebony" and "Eagle Claw" (The Ebony EP) that will take the music to the next level.

Rick will truly appreciate the support he is given and will provide an endless stream of amazing musical gifts that his friends and fans can enjoy for years to come.

Well hello again... This is Rick Harris, musician by LOVE, first and foremost. I have been quite busy since my initial start of the previous campaign. I have been working with Project Nightingale, a company devoted to providing nurses of the world the tools they need to better perform their duties in the healthcare field, which is so vital for the well being of our society. They are the front line of our civilization. Without their work and care, where would we be if they were not available to care for our wounds and help us when we are at our worst, to nurture us back to health? I have composed a tribute to nurses; rightly titled "Tribute To Nurses" and released this EP in late 2017. I would appreciate monetary assistance to create some well meaning and deserved musical tribute videos for our hardworking nurses out there.
At the close of 2017, I finalized a long awaited project for the empowerment of my people entitled, "So Black And Heavenly." This project is a true gem, and I believe that as much racial tension and troubled race relations that have resurfaced since the many cases of police brutality and the like; this project will be something that will shed light on many issues regarding this. The goal, however; is to help heal race relations and to shed light on the reason why these events have occurred, and also assist my people to rise above it to be the "light of the world" that they were called to be; and help our world to heal by their awakening to who they really are. The album: "So Black and Heavenly" will be released sometime in the Spring of 2018. The title track of the album, "So Black And Heavenly" was released December 2017. The music video for "So Black And Heavenly" was released the same day and can be viewed on Youtube and www.rickharrisgt.com.
As I mentioned previously at the initial campaign, I am doing this as an independent artist. I do not have the resources like the mainstream music industry. I believe that the quality and depth of the music I provide is far greater than in the mainstream music industry backed by the big record companies. They are not allowing the creative quality and the sophistication of music the world once had in my opinion. So if you could find it in your heart to assist me in my goal to bring back the music at the level of excellence we have been missing as of recent, I will be forever grateful. Just send me a donation and I will do my best to make you proud, and bring some sweet sounding music and videos for the world to enjoy with 100% creative freedom! Thank you for taking the time to visit my page. Rick
