Audrey Harrer is an experimental pop composer/vocalist/harpist. Her work is an unexpected blend of melodic wordplay, detailed arrangements, and processed harp. She collaborates with chamber groups, runs DIY shows, and experiments with music technologists. Audrey cares about process, community, and the arts as a means to create connection. 

Currently Audrey is in the process of completing her second album and preparing for the premiere of her new multi-sensory performance project "Lavender" as Artist in Residence at Boston Center for the Arts.

Based in Los Angeles, Audrey grew up in rural Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. She moved to Boston to study music composition and voice, subsequently adopting the harp as a creative tool for self-accompaniment and sonic exploration. Musically, Audrey is influenced by artists such as Moondog, Patti Smith, Kate Bush, and Laurie Anderson, and she draws inspiration from vintage animation scores, mid-century lounge, modern concert music, and rock. 

Audrey has worked and/or performed with Gem Club, Hank Shocklee (Bomb Squad, Public Enemy), Birdsongs of the Mesozoic, (Vapors of) Morphine, Roger Clark Miller (Mission of Burma, Trinary System), and many others.  She has studied with groups such as the Kalistos Chamber Orchestra and Meredith Monk’s Vocal Ensemble; written commissions for the Cambridge Philharmonic, Peabody Essex Museum, and the Maine International Film Festival; collaborated with chamber groups such as Verdant Vibes and Hub New Music; and she performs solo with her electroacoustic harp and loop pedal in environments as varied as rock clubs, galleries, house shows, studios, and recital halls.
