Michael Sean Harris – Revolutionizing Live Entertainment

Michael Sean Harris has been redefining the meaning of live music in and around Kingston’s hot spots performing an eclectic mix of musical and theatrical styles which he has also taken to the Caribbean, USA and the UK.

Harris has been trained in acting, movement and choral singing and studied piano, voice and viola privately. Thus he is very qualified for the various roles he has played being a member of The Little People and Teen Players Club and a founding member of Ashe Caribbean Performing Arts Ensemble.

Now a seasoned performer having toured Europe for three years after leaving Berklee College of Music in Boston and recently thrilling the audience at the eleventh staging of the Air Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival with his alternative Jamaican musical style, Harris still finds time to be a full time lecturer at the Edna Manley College of Music. He lectures Pop/Jazz voice and Jazz harmony and has recently co-written a music technology course for their degree programme.

His love for music and its various forms has seen him becoming a primary consultant with the Digicel Rising Stars Talent Competition, acting as performance coach for all the selected artistes. He also works closely with the creative team with song selection and overall creative choices.

In 2007 Michael released Moonshine Darlin which got heavy rotation not only in Jamaica but also the Caribbean. His current single Table Top, a Dancehall/Rock mix featuring TOK’s Craig-T has been recently released and is garnering a favourable response among disc jockeys.
