ABOUT

Jimmy Harry is a Golden Globe winning songwriter and composer who currently resides in Los Angeles, CA. As committed to music as he is uncommitted to a genre, Harry has worked with artists such as Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Kelly Clarkson, Weezer, Pink, Fischerspooner, Oh Land, and Santana. Recognized at the 2012 Golden Globes by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, he won "Best Original Song" with Madonna and Julie Frost for the song "Masterpiece".

Sprawling the areas of theater, sound installation, composition, and performance, Harry's background plunders the spectrum of art and noise. He began his career as a composer and sound designer in the avant-garde theater scene, working with the Randolph Street Gallery in Chicago, the Public Theater in NYC, and the Red Eye Collaboration in Minneapolis, the city anchoring much of his early orbit. As a young musician Harry plunged into the creative scene, writing and composing, joining rock bands, running an art gallery, and connecting with fellow talented subversives. While on assignment with the Red Eye Collaboration Harry met writer/director Leslie Mohn, with whom he partnered on the performance art piece "Everything In Sight" at MOCA Los Angeles, and installation artist Dorit Cypis, with whom he exhibited at the Whitney Museum.

While commuting between theater companies and rock gigs, Harry made the acquaintance of his long-time mentor and artistic catalyst, the writer/director Lee Bruer. Though Bruer and Harry would collaborate on a number of projects, it was the Atlanta run of Bruer's "The Shaggy Dog Animation" that would prove the most fateful for Harry's career. The production was in the casting stage when Harry, the composer, spotted a colorful performer holding a sign that said, "RU PAUL IS STARRBOOTY". Ru Paul was cast in the show, sparking a creative relationship with Harry that would produce the iconic song "Supermodel".

Harry wrote regularly following the success of "Supermodel", bouncing between the cultural hemispheres of New York and Los Angeles and working with pop stars like Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears and Kelly Clarkson. Earning a reputation for talent as well as versatility, Harry continued writing with bands such as Weezer and Ninjasonik, and artists such as Belinda, Santana, and Pink. In 2010 his production of Pink's "Sober" was nominated for a Grammy for Best Female Vocal Performance, and he also wrote and produced "Funhouse", the title track of her release nominated in the category "Best Pop Album".
