Born in Southern California, Harper began playing guitar as a child, gravitating eventually to the acoustic slide guitar. He released the limited edition LP Pleasure and Pain
in 1992 and his major label debut, Welcome to the Cruel World
, followed in 1994. Harper’s unique blend of rock, soul and funk won over critics and fans alike and with 1995’s Fight For Your Mind
, he became a mainstay at AAA and college radio. The Innocent Criminals, his supporting band, were introduced on 1997’s The Will To Live
. The success of the subsequent Burn to Shine
landed the band two headlining world tours and an opening slot on Dave Matthews Band’s 2000 summer tour. Two live releases book-ended Diamonds on the Inside
and, in 2004 Harper recorded the Grammy-winning album There Will Be a Light
with the Blind Boys of Alabama. He released the double album Both Sides of the Gun
in 2006 and followed it with 2007’s Lifeline
