Bay Area native Bryan Harrison
played on five stages at High Sierra Music Festival
as a member of “The Wake Up Call”

Founding member of BHB (Bryan Harrison Band) which, shifted and morphed from full-on electric rock band to a more acoustic Alt. Folk Rock sound, before changing the name of the band to “The Buds”

Bryan refined and defined his warm vocals, and songwriting talents playing open mics, jam sessions, coffee houses and small clubs in and around San Francisco, including The Hotel Utah, Cafe DuNord, Lost ‘n Found Saloon, The VooDoo Lounge, The Nomad Cafe, and Giordano Brothers, to name a few. Using the open mic scene as a means to try out a lot of new material, Bryan was featured in the pilot of a show designed for PBS entitled “Open Mic Showcase”. Previous to that he won an online “original artist” music contest that earned him studio time, based on fan voting.

He has been interviewed and played live on KFRC radio; played live on SF Pirate radio, and most recently, with The Buds, played on UC Berkeley KALX 90.7 in the fall of 2011.

Bryan worked with recording artist and engineer/producer Todd Nichols, of Toad The Wet Sprocket fame, in producing tracks for his “thru the open gate” CD. Todd brought in Toad cohorts Dean Dinning and Randy Guss, providing some strong instrumentation and vocal support, along with guitarist and coproducer Johnny Hawthorn, for four of the strongest tracks on the album. Bryan self-produced and recorded the balance of the tracks for the record.

“thru the open gate” is now available on iTunes
