Released January 2019. 8 tracks. 51 minutes.
‘Nomad’ is a contemporary jazz funk/fusion album from Australian multi-instrumental musician, composer and producer Benjamin Harrison.
‘Nomad’ was composed and produced over a two year period during which time Benjamin was touring around the world with several Cirque du Soleil productions – the nomadic nature of his lifestyle lending itself to the albums title.
A versatile multi-instrumentalist, Benjamin plays saxophones (soprano, alto and tenor), EWI (electronic wind instrument), piano/keyboards, synthesizer and bass guitar on this release.
‘Nomad’ also features special guest appearances from guitarists Cory Wong and Quentin Angus, and YouTube drumming sensation Vadrum.
Benjamin Harrison is a new name, but a multi-talented one with a bright future on the horizon.Steven Miller – Sound In Review
This consummate fifty-minute collection of self-penned compositions proves that where true talent needs to manifest, it will inevitably find a way.Roger Farbey – All About Jazz
Produced by Benjamin Harrison and mixed / mastered by acclaimed engineer Simon Cotsworth (Incognito, The Brand New Heavies, George Benson), ‘Nomad’ was an incredibly challenging project logistically to bring to fruition as the majority of the parts were recorded remotely by the musicians involved in the project from all around the world.
