Biography

Jerry Harrison (born Jeremiah Griffin Harrison, 21 February 1949, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin) is an American songwriter, musician and producer. He was the keyboardist and guitarist for the influential New Wave group Talking Heads and an original member of The Modern Lovers. His first solo album The Red and the Black was released in 1981, his second; Casual Gods was released in 1988 shortly after the breakup of Talking Heads. Harrison’s last solo album; 1990’s Walk On Water is actually credited to Jerry Harrison: Casual Gods, apparently in an attempt to create a new “band” identity by linking it to the previous record.

Since withdrawing from recording music, Harrison turned to producing and has helmed numerous successful albums by such bands as Violent Femmes, Foo Fighters, The Von Bondies, General Public, Live, Crash Test Dummies, The Verve Pipe, Rusted Root, The Bogmen, BLACK 47, Of A Revolution, No Doubt and most recently The Black and White Years, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and Bamboo Shoots.

    I really wish that Casual Gods was on last.fm. I owned the cassette back in the day - excellent album.
