Based out of Halifax, Nova Scotia, recording and performing artist Chudi Harris has taken his distinct sound and live performance experience around Atlantic and Central Canada. With multiple EPs, singles, and collaborations to his credit, this alternative R&B artist and singer-songwriter is poised to make a giant leap into the Canadian music landscape.
Written during the summer, Chudi’s brand new single, “How It’s Always Been,” takes direct inspiration from the season’s warm weather and fun vibes. Although the song does lean towards romantic love, it’s also influenced by the love and security that can be shared between friends and family.
I’m a singer and songwriter based out of Halifax, Nova Scotia. I would describe my music as pop with hints of R&B and Rock. If you turned on a Chudi Harris song on your favorite streamer, you can expect smooth vocals accented by honest and introspective lyricism. I love getting performing on stage, whether I’m getting loose with my band or doing a more intimate acoustic show.
“How It’s Always Been” is a summer jam. It’s inspired by warm weather and being with the people you love. I co-wrote the song with Carleton Stone – a really talented singer, songwriter, and producer from Nova Scotia. Sharing ideas with him really brought out the best in the song, and I think it shines through with a really fun tune.
Growing up, I learned how to play piano and guitar, and that led me to listen to an eclectic range of music. Now I write, I can pull from that diverse range of styles and emotions.
I’m also collaborating more with other artists and musicians in my city. To be honest, I used to feel anxious about sharing my art on that level with someone else, but it’s an important step in growing as a musician and a writer, and it brings out the best in you.
I’ll be performing at Nova Scotia Music Week in Sydney, Cape Breton. The festival and conference take place November 3-6. Keep an eye on my socials for an exact date and time!
I want to be able to connect with more listeners and collaborators. That means writing a lot more and trying to get out there and perform as much as I can. You can definitely expect more Chudi Harris in the near future.
I’m Jenna, the founder, and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be.
