Sam Harris

Sam Harris's life in music began at the age of two, when, thanks to incredible foresight, his mother put him in early piano lessons. Sam quickly excelled in his classical training, and by the age of ten was competing regularly on the local and statewide levels. At Booker T. Washington Arts Magnet High School in Dallas, Texas, he discovered jazz and was soon consumed with the dual pursuit of classical and improvisatory music. In 2004 he moved to New York to attend the Manhattan School of Music on scholarship, where he studied privately with teachers like Garry Dial, Jason Moran, and John Riley. He has played in bands led by forward-thinking musicians such as Ambrose Akinmusire, Logan Richardson, and Linda Oh, and is quickly gaining recognition as a new voice on the music scene.
”He plays from a place of sincerity that sets him apart from his counterparts. His willingness to straddle the fence of jazz piano history allows him to create a fresh take on jazz... I will be watching and listening to his every move.” -Jason Moran
