Dhani Harrison is a multi-Grammy award-winning composer, producer and musician whose scoring credits include the Sundance award-winning Matangi/Maya/M.I.A. documentary for which he received an International Documentary Association (IDA) Award nomination for “Best Music Score Award” with his scoring partner Paul Hicks. Harrison and Hicks also scored Learning to Drive starring Sir Ben Kingsley and Patricia Clarkson, two seasons of WGN’s Outsiders which was executive produced by Paul Giamatti, Obey Giant - The Story of Shepard Fairey, Amazon’s original series Good Girls Revolt, Showtime’s White Famous, the music-lauded HBO docuseries The Case Against Adnan Syed, and Cut Throat City which was directed by RZA.
Harrison’s first score, which he undertook with his band, thenewno2, for Beautiful Creatures, directed by Richard LaGravenese received strong praise from the LA Times which applauded the “cool alt-rock sound thanks to the haunting music of the Brit band thenewno2.” Subsequently, Harrison has gone on to score numerous projects for Amazon, Netflix, Showtime, Hulu and HBO as well as motion pictures.
Harrison’s long career as a musician has been anything but ordinary. Originally stepping onto the global stage with his band thenewno2, a musical collective that seamlessly fused alternative rock, electronica and blues, the band earned critical acclaim for its innovative sound and performances at Coachella, Lollapalooza and on multiple late-night TV shows. However, it was as a solo artist that Harrison truly demonstrated his creative autonomy. His debut solo album IN///PARALLEL, served as a testament to his evolution as a musician, which Rolling Stone Magazine dubbed “A psychedelia-tinged journey into modern-day disconnect.” whilst his latest album, INNERSTANDING, featuring collaborations with Graham Coxon (Blur), Liela Moss (The Duke Spirit), Mereki, and more, serves as a testament to Harrison’s unwavering dedication to constructing intricate auditory landscapes, with the album receiving critical praise from Flood, NME, The Line of Best Fit and Mojo magazines, which gave the album 4/5 and said, INNERSTANDING finds Harrison marking out his own territory, sustaining a brooding musical atmosphere and filling it with sterling melodies.” Harrison’s collaborations on INNERSTANDING follow his extensive history of working with many diverse artists throughout his musical career, which has seen him perform with Wu-Tang Clan, UNKLE, John McLaughlin, Annie Lennox, Pearl Jam, Nitin Sawhney, Perry Farrell, Prince, Regina Spektor and Fistful of Mercy (alongside Ben Harper and Joseph Arthur).
