Harrison Lipton is a Brooklyn-based vocalist, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist. Growing up in Manhattan, Lipton began his music education on piano and voice, receiving advice and encouragement from many, including family friend Sean Lennon, to pursue music. Lipton’s family moved to the small town of Easton, Connecticut where, at the age of nine, he continued his early music education by becoming the featured soloist of a gospel choir. In high school, he immersed himself in various projects, including becoming the frontman of a band with Palehound’s Ellen Kempner. All the while, Lipton honed his keyboard and guitar skills and taught himself production on Ableton Live to begin writing songs on his own. He has lent his distinct songwriting and soulful vocals to artists’ projects over the past few years: in 2014, he co-wrote and performed on Mister Lies' standout track “High”, and last year he co-wrote and toplined “19 Hours” by Giraffage. Now focusing on his solo career, Lipton emerges as a unique voice that blends gospel-inflected vocals with mellow dream-pop production. Harrison Lipton’s full-length debut “Loveliness” is to be released spring 2018 on Yellow K Records.
