Singer Guitarist Pianist

“Harrison’s husky gravelly vocal style ensures that he deserves to belong within the same faction as the likes of Rod Stewart and Kelly Jones, allowing him to explore Rock and Soul with Justice. This said, his softer side makes him as good as any at delivering a modern ballad.”

As well as being a fantastic vocal performer Harrison also accompanies himself with piano and acoustic guitar. What makes him unique is the fact he manages to play his accompaniments at the same time and creates extra depth using a Boss RC20XL loop station. Harrison recreates the sound very similar to a full band using only his guitar and keyboards. (Please specify in booking if you would like Guitar and/or Piano).

This along with Harrison being a solo artist makes him generally very competitive in the price range making him a popular choice for weddings, corporate events and other social functions etc.

The range of material is very broad, and he can cater for any event or crowd. He performs music from many classic artists including Rod Stewart, Billy Joel, The Beatles, U2, The Rolling Stones and also mixes this with music from more contemporary artists including The Killers, Kings Of Leon, REM, Oasis, Bruno Mars, Rihanna, Amy Winehouse, Ed Sheeran etc. The general rule is ask and he can accommodate!

As well as performing up and down the United Kingdom, Harrison has performed in Spain, Croatia, and Thailand to name a few!

Outside of this work Harrison is an emerging song writing talent on the music scene, 2013 saw him embark on a UK tour, festival appearances and release his debut album. He has also had success internationally with his first ever single bizarrely reaching no. 1 in national radio charts in Qatar. Later on in 2013 Harrison received national airplay on BBC Radio 1Xtra and is regularly featured on BBC introducing. Please be assured Harrison’s touring commitments will always be worked around dates that have been booked with private clients….

All I can say is Harrison is absolutely fantastic how he has not been signed I don’t know! I am so glad that I found him to play our wedding on the 30 December 2013 at East Lodge Rowsley it was just perfect.
Sarah and Mark Barratt added this review

We would whole heartedly recommend Sam Harrison to perform at any function. He was excellent at our Christmas Party and entertained a group of 30 people of all ages. He is a talented performer and gauged his audience really well. By his second set, everyone was up dancing and his performance really made the event special.
Sophie Hicks (J M PACKAGING LTD, NORTH YORKSHIRE) added this review

Just wanted to say how blown away we all were by you performance mate. Seriously, everyone was raving about how good you were. It’s fair to say it was even better than we expected and having watched and listened to most of your online stuff we had high expectations! Safe to say you finished an incredible day off perfectly, thank you! All the best for the future mate and we’ll all be keeping our fingers crossed that you go from strength to strength as you certainly deserve to. Hopefully we’ll be lucky enough to see you play again in the not to distant future.

Hi Harrison, We’re now back from our amazing honeymoon!! I would like to thank you for all you did at our wedding, you were amazing and everybody loved you. Wish I could do it all again! I will recommend you to anyone I meet. Thank you again from Tasha.
Tasha added this review

This young man entertained us at The Wortley House Hotel in Scunthorpe 12th October 2013 at the Daisy Lincs Charity Ball. Not only were his playing and singing amazing, so too were his looks, manner and temperament. A lovely guy who i would highly recommend and would would happily adopt as one of my own. Thank You Harrison.
Claire Bulmer added this review

With the first tune everyone was up and dancing at our charity ball. Just what I asked for and what I got. Thank you.
Linda Marshall (DAISY Lincs) added this review

Harrison played at the last night of an international conference. His music and tone is excellent and the audience were amazed at his talent. He was extremely flexible and a pleasure to work with. He judged the atmosphere well and chose excellent his music. He had people dancing and there was a definite air of disappointment when he finished. This guy is great and you will not regret having him play at your event. Indeed, he is very likely to be its highlight. Just book him!
Graham Pockley added this review

Harrison performed for us at our joint birthday garden party, in August and was fabulous. He was accommodating and understanding even when it started to rain just as he was setting up. With hardly any notice, he learned a song from scratch and absolutely ‘nailed it’. (The highlight of the night!). Gorgeous voice and a brilliant multi skilled musician, we couldn’t have wished for better.
Julie and Iain Hall-Kenny (Pyronix Ltd) added this review

Harrison played at our wedding on 11 July 2013 in the Orangery at Close House Northumberland and made occasion absolutely magical. His background music both in the simple setting of the Orangery and on the patio in the evening sunshine just made the day. Harrison has recorded “If not for you” and “In my life” for us. Songs which have a depth of meaning for us both and which, when set to our photographs, will make the very best record of the day we could wish for. All of our guests were very impressed and looking for an album from him. Thank you Sam for making our day truly wonderful.
Stephanie and Melvyn Neale added this review

Harrison played at our birthday party in Newark on 6th July 2013 and what can I say? The man is a true professional and his talent is extraordinary. He had our guests clapping, singing and dancing and they cannot stop speaking about him. I am sure Sam will get a lot of repeat business from them too. Thank you so much Sam, you really made our day so special and our guests cannot wait for “Fernfest 2014!”
Andrew & Kashan added this review

Harrison played at our reception on 18 May 2013 and was a huge success. He was very happy to learn a couple of special requests in just the week before and played them beautifully on the day. Many of the guests asked where we had found him and everyone commented on how good he was. He made the day for us. Would highly recommend for any occasion.
Sharon Pryke added this review

Harrison made out ceremony absolutely perfect! Everybody loved him and couldn’t stop talking about how good he was and how special he made it! Highly recommended! Harrison has a fantastic voice and he played the guitar beautifully! Thank you for making our wedding so special.
Emma & David Tuschick (Wedding Day) added this review

Harrison played at our wedding last week and he was absolutely fantastic. A friendly, easy-going guy, he was happy to play our type of music. A very talented musician, he entertained the guests all night and made a great impression. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a talented guitarist. Thanks Sam for helping make our wedding such a success!!
Jen and Mark (Wedding) added this review

I used harrison for my wedding proposal to my now fiancé and he nailed the song I requested which is very hard to play on such short notice. He kept good communication so I was able to plan his exact location and he made an idea in my head become a great reality. Thank you so much
Jayes Patel added this review

Harrison is excellent. He performed at our wedding in Cheshire on 20th April 2013 and played whilst the guest arrived, as I walked up the aisle and for reception drinks afterwards. He was really helpful with the songs we said we would like for the wedding, he has a beautiful voice and is an extremely talented musician. Lots of guests said how great he was and we were delighted. On top of all this he is a really nice guy, I reccomend him highly, thankyou Harrison.
Karen McCabe added this review

Fiona & Graham Kneehsw added this review

We had Harrison sing at our wedding in May and he was amazing! Not only did he learn our first dance song last minute (bride was very indecisive) but he was a great performer with an amazing voice. Everyone commented on how great you were Harrison! Thank you so much for performing, it made our day so much more perfect!
Faye and Adrian added this review

We recently had Harrison sing at our wedding reception. He was fantastic, his vocal performance was amazing with a wide variety of songs to suit all. We would highly recommend Harrison, he gave us a perfect end to a perfect day, thank you Sam for everything.
Liz & Rob Coburn added this review

We booked harrison for our recent wedding and my god he was just amazing. He learnt our first dance song which he performed perfect. Everybody loved him he has an amazing voice and also what a great guy. He should definitely be touring so eveyone could appreciate just how good he is. He made our evening perfect my feet still hurt from dancing to every song.
Leanne and john added this review

After researching Harrison & listening to him on YouTube I booked him to play at a birthday dinner party for my husband . I have to say , he was amazing – what a talented guy with a superb voice ! A very gifted musician – I asked if he could possibly play a couple of tunes that weren’t on his list , and was thrilled when he had learnt them in a few days.. Such a great evening , and Harrison’s brilliant performance was the icing on the cake ! If anyone is looking to book Harrison , they will get a first class performance. Highly enjoyable and punctual even on the evening with a severe weather warning ! All our guests were blown away by him & I’m sure will be talking about him for a long time .
Andrea added this review

We booked Harrison for Dean’s 50th birthday house party. It was a night to remember and Harrison was definitely the star and has been talked about with our guests since! His repertoire suited all ages and tastes and Harrison sounded great. For anyone wanting to impress their guests and create a good atmosphere for the beginning of the night, then to get everyone’s dancing feet going then Harrison’s your man!! We originally paid for 2 spots but after a whip round our guests wanted a 3rd and didn’t want him to leave! We were so impressed and will definitely book Harrison again, can’t wait for our next excuse to have a party, thanks Harrison.
Kerry and Dean Robinson added this review

Harrison recently provided our music for Kerry’s 40th birthday party at our home which was a great success. We loved his style both vocally and musically and he created a fantastic atmosphere. We found him easy to deal with, very accomodating over choice of music and generally he was very eager to please. The most important thing for us however was the fact that he is clearly a very talented musician with great, evocative vocals to match. We’d certainly recommend him. Thank you Harrison, G&K
Guy & Kerry Neilson added this review

We can not thank Harrison enough for making our wedding renewal day, 15th December 2012 so very special. We wanted to create a personal intimate atmosphere on arrival and during our reception and Sam came up trumps! All our family and friends were really impressed with his performance and wanted to know were we found him he was so good! Even though we had a couple hiccups (two power cuts not Harrison’s fault!) nothing was spoiled, Harrison was professional and played acoustic which further added to our day. We would recommend Harrison to anyone looking for a top quality musician,such a lovely young man with a friendly personality who will go far in the future. Looking forward to enjoying his performance again.
Graham Yvonne Taylor added this review

Absolutely Amazing Voice! Would definitely recommend for a party.

Thank you for making our day so special, Everybody loved it, meant the world to myself and Gaynor to have some heartfelt music played on our wedding day, Good luck with your future gigs/festivals/career!
Andy & Gaynor added this review

Harrison was the perfect mix of musical braun and subtleness for our party in the woods. We wanted to celebrate the move to our new office with clients, family and friends and were looking for something a little more personal than an ipod to set the mood in our fab new working environment. Harrison’s style suited our event perfectly, the sound he created with guitar, keys and pedals created a great ambient mood whilst not being too imposing to spoil the chit chat that went on around. Oh yes, he also has a great voice too! Everyone really enjoyed the set so a big thank you to you Harrison!
Michael Freemantle (10 Associates Ltd.) added this review

Thank you so much Harrison for making our wedding night special with your amazing musical talents! Everyone repeatedly told both of us how great you were and how surprised they all were that you were available for weddings! Not only did you bring tears to eyes with your breathtaking version of U2’s..All I want …but your own music such as …The Only Road…(which we can’t thank you enough for playing x) made everyone tearful too! Your passion for your music whilst playing surpasses anything I’ve seen and I have a lot of respect for that! Harrison’s ability to engage with people at any event makes you feel at ease with his incredibly professional way of working, he was helpful before our wedding (nothing was too much trouble!) and punctual and even coped well with crazy aunties who are now (along with us and all our guests!) among his biggest fans x our guests have asked for his details to be passed on to them so that they can also contact him for bookings and I personally want to thank him from the bottom of my heart for being so genuinely brilliant. Good luck with the future of your musical career Harrison! You deserve to reach the dizzy heights of stardom and we will be in the crowd at some point cheering you on! Such genuine guy! We would highly recommend Harrison for any event! …..much love….Mr and Mrs Nunns
