Adam Harris is an Oregon-based jazz saxophonist, flutist, composer and teacher. At 28 years old, he is already establishing a reputation for himself as a powerful voice in the Pacific Northwest music scene.

Adam's interest in music began to grow at age 10 when he first picked up the saxophone. After seeing several live jazz performances and listening to numerous Blue Note recordings in his father's album collection, he realized that music would eventually become a life long passion.

At age 16, he enrolled at his local university as a pre-music major so he could take college-level ear training and music theory classes.

Several years later, he decided to move from Oregon to Seattle, WA where he began studying at Cornish College of the Arts.

While at Cornish, Adam had the privilege of working with many of the area's most well known jazz musicians, which included Julian Priester, Jovino Santos Neto, Jay Thomas, Jim Knapp and Denney Goodhew.

Shortly thereafter, he began his professional performing career with the Jim Knapp Orchestra, a 13-piece big band comprised of some of the most talented jazz improvisers in the Seattle area. During this period, Adam had the opportunity to work with Ingrid Jensen, Jon Wikan, George Cables and Wynton Marsalis. He also played at many popular music venues in Seattle such as Tula's, Bumbershoot and the Paramount Theatre.

After graduating with a Bachelor's Degree in Music from Cornish, Adam attended the New England Conservatory in Boston, MA, where he earned his Master's of Music degree in December, 2011. While in Boston, he had the fortune of working with critically acclaimed musicians such as Dave Holland, Donny McCaslin, Miguel Zenon, Jerry Bergonzi, George Garzone, Billy Hart and Cecil Mcbee.

Adam currently resides in Grandview, WA. He is the director of music instruction at Grandview High School and continues to teach privately and perform professionally throughout the Pacific Northwest
