Take the vocal and melodic sound of Seal; add a little funk; guitar work like Toto; bundled with a spiritual focus; and you have – Rufus Harris.
With three projects under his belt and two more in the making – this Recording Artist has taken Christian music to a whole new level. Each cleverly crafted album illustrates Rufus’ creativity and varied musical influences. His upbringing in Alaska exposed him to all types of musical artists ranging from Sly and the Family Stone to the Beatles.
When not performing at coffeehouses and churches, Rufus often spends his time sharing his music at nursing homes and prisons. He is a national platform artist for Chuck Colson’s Prison Fellowship and performs for inmates across the country.
But Rufus is not just focused on his own music career. In an effort to help other independent Christian artists, he co-founded The CAMP – Christian Artists and Musicians Project – a non-profit organization that assists and showcases diverse independent artists. The organization’s must visible event – 4thFridays with rufus harris has become one of Metro Detroit’s premier venues for Christian entertainment.
Rufus continues to touch many with his unforgettable melodies and thought-provoking lyrics. He has become a mentor to artists and prisoners and an inspiration to Christian music lovers everywhere. He currently lives in the Detroit area with his lovely wife Denise; has two beautiful daughters; is “Grandpappy” to two delightful granddaughters. He is pastor of The Bridge Church in Pontiac, Michigan.
