Jazz composer, pianist and vocalist Rich Harney has lit up the Austin jazz scene for the past couple decades with a smooth sound, generating high praise from critics. With a style that feels intimate and free, bringing on comparisons to Bill Evans, Harney creates a unique sound that flows seamlessly, provoking feelings of warmth and love. Receiving numerous awards such as, Composer of the Year, Best Songwriter among many others, Harney has not been one to rest on his laurels, as he continues to play shows and still finds time to teach piano.
Rich Harney stopped by Studio 1A last week and gifted us with playing some of his music for us. If you missed his performance you’re in luck as you can also stream his music here, on KUTX.
