Diverse and Exciting
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 11 time GRAMMY winner Mick Guzauski, 6-time GRAMMY winner Chris Lord Alge and GRAMMY winner Adam Hawkins. He both produced and co-wrote albums with the brilliant SOFI K, Liz Ivory, and GRAMMY winner Kate Hart.
Bryce has also recorded with Motown legend Dennis Coffey, Larry Callahan and selected of god choir, 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.
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 this 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.
This featured video comes from a few years ago when Bryce won the kresge award in the music category. This video shows off a couple of Bryces talents in beatboxing and drumming and also has a clip of him doing both at the same time.
Bryce talks a little bit about some influences and what he does.

KRESGE ARTIST FELLOWSHIPS are $25,000 awards and professional practice opportunities for emerging and established metro Detroit artists.
