I’m Harper James, a producer, writer, and mixing engineer signed to Hard 8 Working Group (Billie Eilish, All Time Low). I work out of a production suite at Degraw Sound in Brooklyn, NY and am one half of the band Eighty Ninety. My work has collectively over 25 million streams on Spotify. Eighty Ninety's first single "Three Thirty" charted #2 on Spotify's Global Viral playlist, and Taylor Swift hand picked “Your Favorite Song” for her official Spotify playlist “Songs Taylor Loves.”
Productions that Support Your Unique Identity anD Voice and lay the groundwork for your career
I collaborate with artists and their teams to build records that support and compliment the artist’s unique identity and voice. I endeavor to produce and mix songs for artists that help them reach the next phase of their career—whether it’s better streaming, press, building a team, finding the right tour or landing a sync.
I work with both major label and independent artists. My productions, mixes and songs have been featured on Spotify playlists including Taylor Swift's "Songs Taylor Loves," New Music Friday, Pop Rising, Fresh Finds, Viral Hits, New Indie Mix, Indie Pop, Chill Vibes, Weekly Buzz, Relax & Unwind, Mood Booster, Indie Acoustic, MTV Radar and more.
