Just in Time For Valentine’s Day Fall in Love with Alex Harris & “Millionaire”

“This song has been recorded by two remarkable artists I deeply respect, Solomon Burke and Chris Stapleton. For me, it’s an enchanting composition that resonates with the essence of love in a truly genuine way. I feel that the lyrics breathe life into the concept of love in a way that transforms it into a priceless treasure.”- Alex Harris

A new generation is creating new iterations of classic soul music, but few artists have generated such immediate excitement as Alex Harris. His voice—a gritty, full-throated sound reminiscent of soul music legends, coupled with a radiant spirit and a completely natural authenticity– is winning the hearts and minds of all who see him. Even at this early stage he has already performed for President Biden and President Obama’s Inaugural Galas. Indeed, Steve Cropper, who as musician, songwriter and producer has worked with legendary Memphis soul greats, gave Alex his “thumbs up” after a joint writing session in Nashville. Add to this Alex Harris’ intriguing life story and multi-faceted achievements as musical artist, entrepreneur, and philanthropist, and you have a very special artist. On April 12, 2024, Shanachie Entertainment will release Alex Harris’ recorded-in-Nashville, debut album, Back To Us, a stunning 11-song collection featuring sparkling originals and a handful of impressive covers with special guests Monophonics, Ruby Amanfu and Sam Ashworth. It is a major statement of the enduring relevance of classic R&B in a contemporary context.

Alex Harris was born in Manchester, Georgia (population 2500) one of eight children born to Pentecostal Pastor and schoolteacher Reverend James Harris and Dr. Carolyn Harris, a dedicated educator. The focus of the family was faith and education with little contact with the secular world. Alex and his siblings developed a strong interest in music. At the age of seven, Alex became the lead singer of the family band, initially known as the A-Boys, since six of his siblings’ names began with the letter “A,” and then A-7 as the seventh sibling symbolized the presence of God. The young group became a sensation, traveling around the country performing mainly in churches. Alex holds a bachelor’s in arts in human services and psychology and a master’s in theology and social work. He did an extended graduate study in adolescent counseling at Harvard University, and recently finished his doctorate in organizational leadership at Nova Southeastern University in Florida. Alex’s entrepreneurial spirit combined with a philanthropic purpose, led him to found a non-profit dedicated to creating curriculum and programming for youth in St. Petersburg, Florida, where he resides with his wife. Arts Conservatory for Teens is dedicated to serving under-served and at-risk communities, using the arts as a catalyst to prepare students for high school graduation, higher education, and the workforce. The ambitious program has served over 13,000 young people to date.

Alex Harris’ intentions on Back To Us are crystal clear. He concludes, “My calling and mission are to utilize my God-given gift of music to inspire humanity. I believe the shared experience of the Gospel Church is part of the ‘secret ingredient’ to authentic soul music. The essence of this album is imbued with the intention to uplift, inspire, and heal. It’s a celebration of life and the myriad emotions we all experience.”
