Wynonie Harris

Profile:
Born: 24 August 1915, Omaha, Nebraska, USA.
Died: 14 June 1969, Los Angeles, USA.

American rhythm & blues vocalist with a hot-n'-raunchy rock and roll style and dance skills.

Harris really began his career touring with Lucky Millinder's band, eventually cutting his first recording with them in May 1944. After quitting the band he signed up to Leo & Edward Mesner's "Philo" label in the spring of 1945, with Johnny Otis leading his line-up.

He recorded on further labels, gaining popular success on the King label in the late '40s. By the mid '60s he was recording on Chess and performing with artists such as T-Bone Walker and Big Mama Thornton.

Harris died of throat-cancer, aged 53. His work has subsequently been honored by inductions into several 'Halls of Fame', including the Blues Hall of Fame, Memphis, Tennessee.
