Meet Jody

From the mountains of northwest Georgia, comes a native Son blessed with infinite creativity. Jody Harris is an award winning, multi-faceted individual who started doing music in 1987. He accepted the challenge of mastering the four elements of hip hop culture after attending the fresh fest in the summer of 1987. Graffiti, Break dancing, deejaying and rapping are all essentials this artist used to express himself during the 90’s. The easy switch to becoming a spoken word artist occurred in 1999 when Jody entered his first poetry slam at the world renown Moorepics in Atlanta. Gil Scott-Heron is his biggest influence. Jody has released multiple genre albums from 1998’s “The Art of Dart Throwing” to 2020’s “Speaking Auraglyphics”.

Jody is an acclaimed poet, visual artist and art historian with a B.F.A. in Illustration from the Atlanta College of Art, B.A. in Studio Art and a M.A. in Sculpture from Georgia State University; he has professionally created groundbreaking and texture-rich pieces for well over twenty years.
