Musically, Harrold lives by the notion that the only thing that identifies a genre is its beat. That belief has allowed Harrold to tear down the walls of the genre to roam music freely. There are only 12 notes, so he pours his soul into every musical situation, be it performing live and leading his band, recording, composing for television and film, mentoring youth, and teaching music. Keyon’s career is a spectrum of greatness in terms of collaboration and as a solo artist.
