Music Made Me: Chris Harris

The Depth & Current front man and Hook Echo Sound engineer taps the five albums that shaped his textured musical perspective.


Music

Zach Hale
Michael Jackson, Thriller (1982)
When I was 9 years old, I received a yellow plastic turntable and a gift certificate from Sound Warehouse for Christmas. I had grown up listening to my parents’ albums, and music was always playing in our house. I was so excited to go to buy my very own albums. I ended up getting Thriller, The Go-Go’s Vacation, and a K-tel sampler. Thriller is such a perfect album. It’s packed with hooks and hit songs. The performances are incredible, but even at 9, it was the sound that drew me in. [Producer] Quincy Jones is a genius musician and arranger. It ended up being one of the biggest pop albums of all time.
