Private lessons with Gail Harris

Gail was born in Puyallup, WA. She started singing at the young age of ten. Appearing on local television with country star Buck Owens, she became an instant success.

At the age of 13 she performed with Tacoma’s famous Wailers eventually becoming a regular featured vocalist at local dances. She sang her way to the NORTHWEST MUSIC HALL OF FAME. Broadening her visionary goals and aspiring talent, Gail later moved to San Francisco headlining in SF’s famous clubs and venues of the time. There she met and trained with esteemed vocal coach Judy Davis, whose clients included Barbara Streisand.

Following several glowing reviews she was invited to Los Angeles to record with renowned record producer Don Costa. There she joined her future husband’s band touring the country from LA to New York and then to Las Vegas, where Gail performed with entertainers like Stevie Wonder, Tina Turner, Della Reese, Fats Domino, Frank Sinatra Jr., and many more.

After several years of touring and performing, Gail returned to the Northwest with husband Arlin. Back home she also occasionally performed with old friends the Wailers reunion gigs. She added playing drums to her performances, and continued playing as a duo with her husband Arlin at private events and local and regional venues.

Gail incorporated Davis’s highly respected method into her own coaching technique where, when time allowed, she began privately coaching beginning and professional singers.

Gail now has turned her training, experience and expertise to full time vocal coaching joining the Ted Brown Tacoma store roster of professional instructors. She coaches singers from beginners to professionals.
