About Album

Taking an endless audio flight to several destinations, Shannon Harris’ “Audio Urbanology: The Art of Audio Truism” becomes available August 21st. Six years in the making, this album celebrates and transforms Harris’ African roots and Latin/Asian/Middle Eastern influences into an alluring aural narrative. Weaving sultry vocals and live instrumentation together, this critically acclaimed project also features colorful, esoteric artwork, that is sure to take you on a symphony orchestrated, fantasy filled trip around the globe. Presenting six dialects from four different continents, Harris’ second album truly sets a new standard for the definition of ‘world’ in music.
