Home    Shows  


Zac Harmon The Blues According to Zacariah Born and raised in the heart of Jackson, Mississippi, Zac Harmon is a true disciple of the music that emanated from the citys historic Farish Street district. Universally recognized as the home of such great blues legends as the late, great Elmore James, Farish Street was quite simply the impetus for the blues, as it was the center of culture, commerce and creativity during Harmons early years. While in high school and college, Harmon gigged as a guitarist for the likes of Z.Z. Hill, McKinley Mitchell, Dorothy Moore, King Floyd and Sam Myers. Relocating to L.A. in the early eighties, he worked as a studio musician, then established himself as a writer and producer, crafting songs for the likes of the OJays, Freddie Jackson, Karyn White, Alexander O'Neal, Black Uhuru and the Whispers. While composing and performing music for a movie score, Harmon was finally compelled to pursue his longtime dream to return to his roots and record his first blues project. The result was 2002s Live at Babe & Ricky's Inn, an electrifying testimonial to the Mississippi blues. The album showcased the sound at its best and introduced Zac Harmon as a true torchbearer for the next generation of the blues. In 2004, Zac Harmon & the Midsouth Blues Revue, won the Blues Foundations prestigious International Blues Challenge (IBC) title of Best Unsigned Band". Zac Harmon continues to enthrall audiences and garner praise from the media and fans alike. The Zac Harmon Band features Buthel on Bass, Cedric Goodman on Drums, Corey Lacy and Rodney B.R. Millon on guitar. After winning the IBC title and while continuing to perform across the country, Harmon carefully assessed the state of the blues and his own state of mind, seriously committing himself to writing, recording and producing his next album along with producer/artist Phil Gates. The Blues According To Zacariah reflects his commitment to the blues and to keeping it real, as he takes you from the pulpit to the juke joint with such standouts as That Mighty High, Whos Knockin, It Hurts Me Too (featuring Miss Mickey Champion) and Comfort of a Man (with Greg Wright). The Blues According to Zacariah debuted at ..14 on the Living Blues National Radio Airplay Chart, with tracks also added at XM Satellite Radios Bluesville and the American Blues Network. The listeners of XM Satellite Radio voted Zac Harmon Best New Blues Artist in the 2005 XM Nation Music Awards. Harmon finished 2005 with a Best New Artist Debut nomination from the Blues Foundation for the 2006 Blues Music Awards.
