He’s been dubbed “a musical renaissance man”, and it only takes a few minutes with Bryce Harding to see why the multi-talented musician is constantly in demand. As a producer, singer, songwriter, drummer, beatboxer, keyboard player, and dynamic performer, Bryce helps both established artists and up-and-coming phenoms shine a light on their signature sound and stand out in an increasingly crowded industry.
Bryce’s noteworthy and diverse portfolio includes work as a producer on albums with GRAMMY winner Adam Hawkins and 6-time GRAMMY winner Chris Lord Alge. He both produced and co-wrote albums with the brilliant SOFI K, Liz Ivory, and GRAMMY winner Kate Hart; the collaboration with Hart led to thrilling new forays into the therapeutic world of sound healing, the results of which can be heard on Astral Sounds.
Bryce has also played keyboard with Atlantic Recording artists Stereo Jane, beatboxed on the famed stage of Harlem’s Apollo Theater (where he nabbed second place in the venue’s “Show Off” competition), and sat in with Shania Twain as a guest drummer for her performance at the Palace of Auburn Hills.
Bryce’s music has also made waves on the small screen, including features on Lifetime and in LIONSGATE Films starring actors Joey Lawrence and Drake Bell.
In 2012, Bryce was awarded the Kresge Artist Fellowship by Kresge Arts in Detroit, one of only twelve individuals selected by a distinguished panel of national and local artists to receive the incredible honor.
Currently, Bryce divides his time between the studio and live performances with his own duo, Fritts and Chips, as well as guest and supporting spots with many of Detroit’s most popular acts. He’s also a dedicated teacher, coaching the next generation of drummers from his home studio in Berkley, Michigan.
