You may have heard her voice on the airwaves. In the Rocky Mountain region and beyond, she’s a juggling mom, singing, “I’m lovin’ it” for a McDonald’s jingle, and she has had several of her original songs on numerous episodes of NBC reality shows during prime time TV. Brenda Harp toured with Richie Furay, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, as a vocalist/keyboardist in his band. Harp performed at venues such as Red Rocks Amphitheatre, The Troubadour, Humphrey’s and The Soiled Dove. Brenda also had the opportunity to open for Phil Keaggy, Richie Furay, and Emily Lou Harris.
Brenda Harp is an accomplished singer-songwriter and performer. Her carefully crafted lyrics tell quite a bit about the artist behind the music. Her talent is pure and refined, yet she is always seeking new avenues of expression, new ways to grow musically. Vocally and stylistically, she carries tremendous versatility, from folk to alternative to jazz standards, as well as rock and roll. Her unerring pitch and quality of voice can make any PA system sound fantastic. She is truly a musician who strives for excellence and depth in all facets of her career.

Her sophomore release, At The Water’s Edge, (October, 2001) has been enormously well received. Masterfully produced by both Ed Edwards and Brenda Harp, At the Water’s Edge contains 11 original songs, with a bit of a departure in style and content from her first album. Bridging life experience and faith, the stories recorded on At The Water’s Edge probe and question and even address some of life’s toughest issues.
Highlights since the release of At The Water’s Edge include a much broader distribution of the CD, radio play on local stations and web radio, and airing on national prime time television, with numerous tracks airing on separate episodes of NBC’s “Meet My Folks,” “Who Wants to Marry My Dad?” and “America’s Next Top Model.”
Her debut CD, The Road Home, (1998) has been released several times since it has such enduring popularity. This collection of original songs is truly top-drawer material.
