Robert Harper-Songwriter, Compos

Robert Harper is an American Bassist, Rapper, Songwriter, and Composer. Robert first gained notoriety from collaborations with funk bass legends Louis Johnson (1998) and Robert Wilson (2005). His musical peers who lived near and/or frequented his neighborhood in Carson, California during his adolescent years were Chuckii Booker (Lionel Richie, Janet Jackson, TLC, Troop), Brothers Louis & Terence Thomas (Barry White), Bendrix Williams (Teena Marie / Ice-T), Wilton Felder Jr. (son of Wilton Felder Sr. of the jazz group-The Crusaders), and Brian O'Neal (The Bus Boys). Later, such young R&B acts as The Boys, and Brandy & Ray J would also follow as residents in this rich musical community of young aspiring artists. Robert started playing bass at the age of 13 and performed in all of his school and local community park talent shows during these years. By the age of 17 he was proficient enough on the bass guitar to start playing professionally at the local night clubs - though he was under the legal age requirement for entrance. Upon graduating from high school he furthered his studies at the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, California and after his departure he started working regularly as a professional session musician.
Robert is also a very prolific songwriter who continues to record and showcase his songwriting abilities combined with musical compositions to the general public. Robert Harper's latest Album is titled "The Fonk Record" (J.Productions). Robert's Music has been embraced by Legendary Funk Music Icons such as the late Louis Johnson, Robert Wilson, and currently Bootsy Collins, Garrett Shider, & Greg Boyer of the P-Funk legacy of musicians.
Robert's funky style, high visibility, and energetic personality have also garnered him endorsements from various musical instrument manufacturers such as: Paul Lairat Basses, GR Bass Amplification, Gallistrings, Magrabo Guitar Straps, Flattley Guitar Pedals, Rigotti Cables, Telefunken Elektroakustik Microphones, D&A Guitar Gear, and Fishman Tuners.. Robert frequently travels to Anaheim, California and Nashville,Tennessee to perform for his many sponsors at the NAMM Show (National Association of Music Merchants) which is one of the world's largest music trade shows in existence today. Robert is also an active member of The Recording Academy (D.C .Chapter). Besides Robert being a solo recording artist, he's also a session bassist who lends his funky bass playing to other fellow recording artists & bands throughout the East Coast DMV areas.
