Born and raised in Boston, MA, Harrell is no stranger to music excellence. She honed her crafts by attending the world-renowned Berklee College of Music and is inspired by legendary singer/songwriters Fred Hammond, Carly Simon, James Taylor, Babyface, Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel and Eric Clapton, to name a few. Obviously, her diverse influences have shaped her as an artist and songwriter. However, no one has had a greater influence on her than her own parents; both pastors and both musically gifted.
To date, Harrell has worked with many industry greats including John Legend, Chris Brown, Mary J. Blige, Brandy, Mario, The Roots, Kelly Rowland, and producers Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, Claude Kelly, Harmony “H Money” Samuels, Benny Benassi, Alex Da Kid, The Underdogs and more. Certainly, the list will continue to grow.
