Dale Harris is an English guitarist whose transcriptions of works such as Richard Wagner’s German opera ‘Tristan And Isolde’ and Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ are fast contributing to his reputation as a heavyweight arranger-performer in the solo-guitar world. Dale has performed with The Lorne Gibson Trio, and Sir Cliff Richard and he has performed for the British Royal Family, The Archbishop Of Canterbury, to name a few. His music has been featured on BBC TV and BBC Radio on multiple occasions. Dale won the GSMC award for Best Instrumental Musician Of The Year in both 2017 and 2018.
Classically trained, Jamie's influences owe as much to Ludovico Einaudi and Beethoven as they do Muse and Nobuo Uematsu. Jamie is a versatile musician with a postgraduate degree in composition for film and TV. Of the many performances Jamie has given in his career, highlights include twice playing for the Mayor & Mayoress of Epsom & Ewell at the Epsom Playhouse, at a political party AGM, and at a private wedding at The Dorchester, Hyde Park.
Jamie occasionally busks around southwest London and Surrey. Piano buskers are a dying breed in the UK, but one such busk fortuitously led to two of Jamie's pieces ('Jill' and 'Lament') being used in Screwdriver, a short indie film released in 2018. Screwdriver went on to be shortlisted at 3 film festivals. Both pieces are featured in CHAISE LONGUE which is Jamie's debut album of solo piano instrumentals, and is the culmination of 20 years worth of writing several songs and selecting only the best. The launch night was held at The Grey Horse, Kingston upon Thames on 9th February 2020 just in time for Covid!
