Tammy Harris is a talented lyricist and vocalist from Chicago, Illinois who is earning her cap as a producer as well. Tammy's music is a smooth blend of Old School R&B Soul fused with elements of Jazz & Funk. Tammy's style had been described by many as reminiscent of the timing of Phyllis Hyman, the vibrato of Stephanie Mills and Randy Crawford, a waver like Denise Williams, and the class of Nancy Wilson.
Tammy's debut album, Can't Keep A Good Woman Down", released in 2003 is a mix of funky grooves, attitude with raw emotions, yet feminine in every since of the word. Tammy’s sophomore project "Natural Vibe" which offers a deeper listen into the artistry of Miss Harris was released May of 2007. This album will features remixes of the title song and "Come Over" by The Remix King, Grammy award-winning Maurice Joshua and Grammy award-winning Arranger Rob Diggy whose credits include the Grammy winning re-mix of Crazy in Love for Beyonce.
Tammy received an honorable mention in the 2002 & 2003 John Lennon Songwriting Contest for her songs "I'm Through; I'm Done" and "Only To You" respectively. Tammy also has received several nominations in the LA Music Awards for her songs “Come Over” and “If”. In addition, Tammy was recognized in the Song of the Year Songwriting Competition as a Finalist for “Come Over” in August 2006, Runner- up for “Baby I Need You” in November 2006, and Suggested Artist for “You Are” in June 2007. After a bit of a hiatus away from music, Tammy is reconnecting with her love of music.
Tammy’s latest project, “Love”, released in the Summer of 2019 features re-recorded, remixed and remastered versions of a few earlier releases along with some new material.
Tammy’s current project, “Chicology,” features remakes from some of the greatest artist to come out Chicago. This project was born out of Tammy’s love for Chicago Music History and the city where she was born and raised. The project was officially released October 2nd which is the day the first episode of Soul Train aired in Chicago in 1971. The first single “Baby This Love I Have” by the late great and amazing songbird Minnie Riperton is a lesser known tune to some, but was sampled by Tribe Called Quest so the beat will be familiar to many who are not as connected to deeper catalog of Minnie Riperton.
