About Harry Connick, Jr.
Resource Entertainment had the pleasure of working with Harry Connick, Jr. during the Live at the Garden series in Memphis.
Pop singer/pianist Harry Connick, Jr. grew up in New Orleans, where he studied music at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts. Recording his first album when he was only 11, Connick matured into a young man whose hunky good looks brought him legions of adoring female fans.
With his Sinatra-style swing vocals and quirky piano playing, Connick first gained a following in his late teens with an eponymous debut of jazzy instrumentals. Connick broke into the pop charts with his soundtrack for the 1989 romantic comedy When Harry Met Sally. The next year, Connick released two albums within weeks of each other, the vocal-oriented We Are In Love and the instrumental Lofty's Roach Souffle.
After touring with a big band, Connick released 1991's Blue Light, Red Light, which featured his vocals and his 14-piece tour band. Following a more traditional 1992 album, 25, Connick contributed to the soundtrack of Sleepless in Seattle.
Since 1990, Connick has devoted an increasing amount of time to acting, appearing on Broadway and in movies such as Copycat and Independence Day.
