Audrey Harrer is an experimental pop composer/vocalist/harpist. She collaborates with chamber groups, runs DIY shows, experiments with music technologists, and works in music education. She cares about process, community, and the arts as a means to create connection. 



Audrey grew up in rural Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. She moved to the city 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’s recent album "Alphabet Rain" is an exploratory recording that received best local music nods from the Boston Globe and Dig Boston. She 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. 

An experimentalist by nature, Audrey works in many different mediums and has amassed a variety of unconventional musical experiences. She works closely with luminaries from across the musical spectrum as a creative director at Berklee College of Music, and she has hosted artists from around the world for DIY shows at her practice loft. 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, hospitals, yoga studios, and recital halls.

Audrey's goal has always been to live an interesting, creative life surrounded by inspired people. She cares about process, sustainability, community-building, and working collaboratively across genres and art forms.
