2014 Record of the Year

 - NAMA (Native American Music Awards)

Mr. Harris sings songs of Paolo Tosti. These songs have great beauty and simplicity in both poetry and melody. Yet, they passionately express so much of the profoundness of the human experience. Known as la Canzone Neopolitana, they are a hybrid of folk and art music and thus have appealed to the common man and artistic aristocrat alike. These songs truly resonate with Mr. Harris, an NFL lineman turned opera singer, for this very reason. It is his hope that this collection will capture the imagination of his broad fan base as well. Pianist Renee Guerrero accompanies Mr. Harris. The album was produced by Mr. Harris and Stefan Acunto of The Italian Academy Foundation.
