P-FUNK FAMILY GUITARIST *WIL HARRIS* Wilbur Roger Harris BIO: A native of Washington, D.C. Wil has performed, or recorded with some of the greatest legends of Funk, Rock, & R&B. To name a few: The Chambers Brothers. Betty Davis's Band,*Funkhouse*, (she was Miles Davis's wife). Mutiny led by former P-Funk Drummer Jerome Brailey. Funkadelic, Ricky Fant'e, and Isaac Hayes....... Wil's father bought his 1st guitar when Wil was 11 years old. Unfortunately, Wil's father passed away when Wil was 13 years of age. However, devastated, Wil and friends in his neighborhood practiced their instruments enthusiastically everyday at each others family's homes. Wil benefited greatly from this by learning how to play a variety of different instruments. Occasionally, in the summers of those days they would bring their instruments outside & blast the neighborhood, showing off their new self taught skills. Wil considered the entire Wash, D.C.

area his neighborhood! Therefore, D.C., Southern Maryland, and Northern Virginia received an earful of the young guitarist skills as they were developing. Wil would spend his late teenage years practicing day and night. This enabled Wil to develope his craft quickly as a young musician............. After comprehending various guitar techniques, Wil began performing with popular local bands. At the age of 18, Tiki Fulwood discovered and commissioned Wil as his lead guitarist/ musical director.Tiki was the original drummer for Parliament/ Funkadelic. After Tiki unfortunately passed away, Jerome Brailey, (who replaced Tiki as P-Funks drummer), befriended Wil and commitioned Wil as lead guitarist for his band called Mutiny. Mutiny was signed with C.B.S. records.

And later was signed with BlackArc, Polystar, and Rycodisk labels. Also, Wil introduced himself to the legendary original Funkadelic guitarist Eddie Hazel. Eddie Hazel, Jimi Hendrix and John Mclaughlin were Wil's childhood idol guitarist's. Eddie befriended Wil and contributed greatly to Wil's playing abilities. Eddie admired Wil's raw ability and persistence very much so that they later performed together in a new rendition of Funkadelic. The band also included original bassist, Billy Bass Nelson, and drummer, Jerome Bigfoot Brailey. Wil and Jerome produced and co wrote songs for Tyka Nelson.Tyka is Prince Rogers Nelson's younger sister. She was later signed with Chrysalis records.
