Harlem The Artist



Harlem the Artist
Harlem the Artist started his musical journey at the young age of 13 with the support of his father.  Over time he's morphed into an impeccable singer and songwriter.  Harlem has independently released three underground solo CD's including; "I'm A Singer", "The Life" and "Situations" which share the sound of R&B mixed with Hip Hop and urban influences.  Harlem's latest single called "Timeless" further shows his vocal and songwriting maturity.  He literally does not rest until he's captured innovation by means of beautiful lyrics and melodies.
Harlem has opened for Tank, Joe, Jaged Edge, Donnell Jones and a host of other signed and unsigned artist.  Harlem has received national exposure after winning and appearing on BET's 106 and Park "Wild-Out_Wednesdays".  Harlem was also recognized as the "Best Male R&B Artist" during the 5th annual Underground Music Awards (UMA) held at BB Kings in New York City.  In addition, he was the 1st artist featured in VIBE magazine's Unsigned Artist Series and named "R&B Artist of the Year".
Harlem the Artist; a man so passionate about music that his very purpose for living resolves around it.  His committment to his music not only demonstrates who he is as an artist, but who he is as a man.  Despite working tirelessly and breaking many nights in recording studios, he still makes the time to be a responsible brother to his siblings, a loving son to his parents and a helping hand to his friends. 
Harlem is the epitome of a truly great musician in the making.  When asked why he makes music, his response is "I don't really feel I have a choice in making music, it's in my DNA...something I couldn't shake if I wanted to.  i just hope people can relate and appreciate my music".


When Harlem was interviewed by David Fromayan of VIBE the writer had this to say: "Harlem views music today as an ever evolving melting pot of genres.  He meshs together a culmination of genres like Pop, R&B, Rap and Jazz music to innovatively broaden his range in music. By doing this it enables him to stay relevant, connected to fans and not be confined to the limits of R&B.  "I want someone whose never seen me perform live to be able to connect with my music, "Harlem says.
Harlems smooths lyrics & melody grasp an audience and sets him apart from the rest.  Harlem's new single entitled "Timeless" has been describe by his Youtube and Facebook fans in the following ways:  "soulful and heartfelt",  "Real R&B", "Nice to see real music back at it", "Good music, love this song" and finally "not cookie cutter type and you can hear the influence of other types of music in it".
The new single "Timeless" could be best describe as a blend of two classic genres of music R&B and Hip Hop with the blend of smooth "Alternative" vocal tones which maintains a great balance sonically.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
