BIOGRAPHY


Cited by Wynton Marsalis as the “future of the trumpet” and “one of the most sought after trumpeters in the world”, this St. Louis native and Mannes School of Music graduate is an eclectic trumpeter/music producer/arranger/songwriter who is known for pushing musical boundaries through his compositions and improvisational style. As a go-to trumpeter in the music industry having been featured on nearly 100 albums ranging from jazz, R&B, pop, gospel, blues and hip hop, Harrold has toured and recorded with or produced for some of the world’s best artists and ensembles. Such artists include Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Common, Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill, Mary J Blige, Rihanna, Gregory Porter, Andre Crouch, David Sanborn, D’Angelo and the Vanguard, Billy Harper, Robert Glasper, 50 Cent, and LL Cool J, to name a few. In particular, he is an integral part of two-time Grammy-Award winning album “Black Summer’s Night” by R&B icon Maxwell with whom he has had a long collaboration having arranged, composed and produced various songs. He also has had numerous musical placements in film and TV including the upcoming Miles Davis Biopic “Miles Ahead” directed by Don Cheadle (film score by Robert Glasper) where he is featured as the trumpet sound of Don Cheadle playing Miles Davis. His next album will be released in early 2016.
