David Ryan Harris

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Dan LeRoy

Where Follow for Now's lone album crackled with a volatile mix of punk, funk, and ska, David Ryan Harris is a more restrained affair, showcasing the Atlanta musician's singer/songwriter leanings in several different settings. He certainly hasn't forgotten how to rock, as songs like "King Karma," with its piledriving, Hendrix-style riff prove. But Harris smoothly shifts gears to offer the folky R&B of "If I Had a Dime" and the swinging, ...

Where Follow for Now's lone album crackled with a volatile mix of punk, funk, and ska, David Ryan Harris is a more restrained affair, showcasing the Atlanta musician's singer/songwriter leanings in several different settings. He certainly hasn't forgotten how to rock, as songs like "King Karma," with its piledriving, Hendrix-style riff prove. But Harris smoothly shifts gears to offer the folky R&B of "If I Had a Dime" and the swinging, Stevie Wonder-ful "Tricks Up My Sleeve," even managing to replicate a bit of R.E.M. jangle on the propulsive "Six Feet Off the Ground." If there's a weakness here, it's that -- save for that latter tune -- most of these songs are subtle constructions that need a few listens to sink in. That fact, combined with Harris' standard defiance of racial pigeonholing, probably combined to doom this album commercially, but it's a mature and thoughtful effort that history shows -- given the crop of guitar-strumming new soul pinups who appeared a few years after its release -- was simply ahead of its time.
