Biography

Michael Allen Harrison’s musical talents began at the young age of 6 when his parents decided to enroll him in piano lessons to help him come out of his shell. “I was painfully shy growing up. My Mom thought it would help me to gain more confidence.” Soon after, he discovered that music came easily for him, he was a natural. He attributes his success to his teachers and professors who all had the confidence in him and continued to encourage his natural talent over the years. The foundational roots that shaped Michael as a young boy left a significant imprint on his heart and eventually led him to launch the Snowman Foundation, an organization that supports school programs where music has been eliminated due to budget cuts and provides instruments and scholarships for kids who can’t afford it. During his college days, Michael became recognized for his unique and natural ability to not only play music, but compose it. Again, supported by his professor he began to write music for theatre programs and branched out as one of the company pianist for the Pacific Ballet Theater, Ballet Oregon, and Oregon Ballet Theater.

In 1986 Michael debuted his first album which quickly launched him in the Northwest scene as one of the most loved and recognized musicians. Since then Michael has released over 40 CD’s sharing his wide variety of composing styles. His musical genius crosses many different genres, from classical contemporary to new age/world and smooth jazz. He launched MAH Records in 1984 which became his well-known label for other popular Northwest artists.
