Toronto-based artist and producer Harrison will be performing at Field Trip Music & Arts Festival on June 3 at the historic Fort York and Garrison Common. 

Harrison’s debut album Checkpoint Titanium was nominated for ‘Electronic Album Of The Year’ at the 2017 JUNO Awards. The album is a bright, futuristic blend of electronic music layered with elements of hip-hop, funk, R&B, house and downtempo.

Harrison, who is no stranger to the Toronto music scene, says he is excited to be part of Field Trip, but is nervous as he is performing the day he gets back from his Asia tour. 

“I’m a little worried...I’d like to practice for it,” he laughs.

Harrison says he’ll be playing a lot of new stuff as well as songs off his last album. His favourite song to perform live is an edit he did of Kashif’s song “Help Yourself To My Love.” Harrison explains that most people recognize the song and get hyped when he plays it.

The local producer says he is most excited to be sharing the bill with Canadian indie pop artist Hannah Georgas. 

Catch Harrison’s live set at 2 p.m. on the Garrison stage this Saturday. 

The interview below aired on Arts & Culture on the Morning Mixtape, hosted by Nicole Di Donato. In the interview, they talked about Harrison’s album Checkpoint Titanium, his process of creating music and his thoughts on performing at Field Trip.
