Biography

Denver, United States (1995 – present)

Corey Harris (born February 21, 1969, Denver, Colorado) is a guitarist based in New Orleans on the Alligator label. He spent some time in western Africa studying, and rhythms from this area are very prevalent in his music, most conspicuously in “Mississippi to Mali.” He performs a wide variety of music, from poppy selections (Santoro, eg) to raw, traditional guitar and piano blues (Honeysuckle, eg). He is one of the few contemporary blues artists that is able to avoid being either a staunch traditionalist or totally separated from its roots.

He released his first record Between Midnight and Day in 1995.

    I have seen him performing live in February 2008 (http://www.last.fm/event/515009): he had tears in his eyes while he played the Blues. That's an incredible soulful man, reminds me of the acoustic legends of the Blues.

    I was never too great a fan of such music, but damn hell, Black Maria is one of the best songs I've ever heard. Pure emotions are what he's conveying in this song. It's very rare that I hear a song for the first time and it immediately hits me like I ran into an iron-door...
