Dhani Harrison grew up on his father’s estate in Henley-on-Thames, Friar Park, and was introduced to drums when he was six. Ringo Starr was the first who gave him drumming lessons, but Dhani was frightened when Ringo started to play, making a big noise that scared the little boy. Harrison went to Badgemore Primary school in Henley-on-Thames, and later to Dolphin School near Twyford, before studying at the Shiplake College. In 2001, Dhani received his Bachelor of Arts from Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island.

Dhani’s career started after his father’s death in 2001, finishing George’s final album, “Brainwashed”, released in 2002. On the first anniversary of George’s death, Dhani took part in the tribute concert organised by Eric Clapton, performing playing a backup acoustic guitar along with other musicians such as Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Clapton, Billy Preston, Ravi Shankar, Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty, Jim Keltner, and Joe Brown. In 2004, George Harrison was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and Dhani appeared onstage with Prince, Steve Winwood, Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, and many others at the celebration.

In 2006, Dhani and Oliver Hecks formed the band called Thenewno2, playing a lead guitar and singing lead vocals, and two years later they released their debut album “You Are Here” – the songs “Yomp” and “Crazy Tuesday” were available for download with the purchase of the “Rock Band 2” video game. In 2010, Harrison, Joseph Artur, and Ben Harper formed the group called Fistful of Mercy and have released one album thus far entitled “As I Call You Down”.

Thenewno2 released their second studio album called “The Fear of Missing Out” in 2012, with the single “Make It Home’ appearing on the band’s Facebook page as well as on the Rolling Stone magazine website. In 2013, the band recorded a soundtrack for Richard LaGravenese’s “Beautiful Creatures” starring Alice Englert, Viola Davis, and Emma Thompson; the songs “Make It Home”, “Run to Me”, and “Never Too Late” appeared in the film. The band also worked for the movie “Learning to Drive” (2014) starring Ben Kingsley and Patricia Clarkson, and the TV series “The Divide” (2014) and “Outsiders” (2016).

Dhani has also appeared in numerous TV shows and series, including “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien” (2009), and “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” (2010). He also appeared in a television documentary “Mr Blue Sky: The Story of Jeff Lynne & ELO” (2012), and “Conan” (2012-2014). Most recently, Dhani composed music for Ryan David’s romance “Seattle Road” (2016) starring Kelly Lynch, Maximillian Roeg, and Julia Voth. Harrison collaborated in the development of a video game “The Beatles: Rock Band” in 2009, urging both Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr to participate.

Regarding his personal life, Dhani Harrison married Solveig ‘Sola’ Karadottir in June 2012; Solveig’s father is Kari Stefansson, a co-founder of the Icelandic biopharmaceutical company called deCODE genetics.

Interesting Facts

#Fact
1Grandson of Louise Harrison and Harold Harrison.
2Nephew of Peter Harrison, Harry Harrison and Louise Harrison.
3He and Jeff Lynne worked extensively with his father, George Harrison, on George's final studio album. Knowing he was dying of cancer, George made sure to not only complete as much work as he could, but also used the time he had to make sure that Dhani and Jeff knew his intentions for the material (down to such details as the cover artwork). Thus, although George died with the album not quite complete, Dhani and Jeff were able to finish the songs according to George's wishes, even using studio time that George had booked ahead of time. The album, "Brainwashed", was released in 2002, almost a year after George's death.
4Son of George Harrison and Olivia Harrison.


Quotes

#Quote
1You can' t help being a musician because you've grown up with music, yet being one means being compared to your dad and being slated for it. But I really don't have the ambitions of most people going into the industry.
2It was a relief to be able to do my own band, because I was very responsible for all this amazing music I didn't want to mess up before.
3I recently got into 'Lie to Me' with Tim Roth and 'The Mentalist.'
4I was an only child. I hung out with my parents.
5My dad used to say to me, 'You look more like me than I do.'
6'Live a Lie' is inspired by recent combinations found in dubstep.
7To come out in the music business, you only really get one shot. A lot of people get to play small gigs first, and build up that way, without anyone really seeing them.
8It's funny, because music is one of those things it is natural to go into. You hear it so much growing up, it kind of permeates you and eventually you spew out some music of your own.
9I think guitar-wise, Eric Clapton was a big influence on me. I got to spend time around him. He's kind of strange, mysterious, serious and he always has played such hot guitar.
10I've grown up around cinema. Michael Kamen was a very, very close friend of mine, sort of my godfather. So I know how much work goes into it. You have to know what you're doing.
11I was recording stuff with my dad when I was like five, six years old. I played with him on tour. I'd gone with him to Japan in '91, played some gigs, did a couple shows at the Albert Hall.
12I love getting into a studio with a bunch of friends. When the day's done, we've made something. We recognize that we're from different walks of the music industry, and there's no reason we shouldn't be collaborating. That's what I'm trying to create with thenewno2 - a sense of community.
13I sometimes listen to music I made and find it to be something I wouldn't want to buy from a store, if there was a store. When it's like that, you have to make what you want to hear.
14I don't really plan to be a pop star; I just want to be able to make music without the whole My Dad thing hanging over me, which everyone in my position goes through.
15Thenewno2 is sort of my little prototype band, really.
16I suddenly realized that in order to do what I wanted to do, I had to become that which I hated - which is the head of a record company or a digital media conglomerate - and just do whatever you want.
17Playing music has always felt very natural. You know, you do try to do other things, and you do learn lessons that way, but, eventually - well... if your dad is a plumber, you become a plumber. It's the family business, and I felt like I was taking over the family business.
18I'm a huge Wu-Tang fan.
19I was very empty after my father passed away. It was an emotional time, as it would be for anyone, but to be in the studio every day was kind of cathartic and healing and it just seemed very natural to continue.
20I'm still getting used to being called a composer. A poseur, maybe.
21'Keep your head down at school.' Those are sage words from my dad. They kept me in check for years.
22Everyone's seen the Beatles.
23Being in L.A. is great because there are so many weird people out there, so you can just blend in. I like that.
24Websites are kind of useless. There's so much great web content and design out there, but the ways in which they are being experienced are not being maximized.
25In almost any profession, even if you're the kid of an actor, people are very supportive and want to see the next generation.
26The music I want to hear in my head sounds somewhere between Jimi Hendrix and Massive Attack. It's not really like my dad, but there will always be similarities because we have the same vocal cords, and I learnt the guitar the way he taught me.
27I have two mini huskies called Woody Guthrie and Edison Guthrie.
28I did everything I could to not be a musician.
29I only discovered electronic music as a teenager and I still love the Prodigy and Massive Attack.
30I don't ever use my name for anything in terms of getting the music heard.
31I did rebel. I was the rebel in my family, because my dad wanted me to go and just travel with him.
32I think I learned a lot about not buying into a lot of hype. I wanted to be a kind of faceless entity; I didn't want to be Dhani Harrison and the Muppets or something like that.
33When my dad toured in '91, I think my first gig properly was the Tokyo Dome, 50,000 people indoors. That was pretty scary. I was 12, or 13.
34I did Albert Hall, I got to play the Hall of Fame with Prince. So I've done that kind of stuff for ages. It wasn't until after we finished working on Brainwash, my dad's album after he died, then it was like 'That phase is over in my life now, now we can get on with our music, with our band.'
35Someone recently played me 'Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell' by Das Racist. That should be my theme song.
36One interviewer asked me: 'How do you feel that you've betrayed your father?' That wasn't really very cool.
37I could never just play in a pub in front of four people because I would have had all the press turn up. That way, you don't get to build up naturally. It makes the work feel unnatural, and puts a lot of unnatural pressure on you.
38My job description is... being enthusiastic.
39If you were the first person ever to design an application for the iPhone and you patented it, you would be very, very better off than we are right now, you know? But you've got to be the first one to do it. So I figured that Led Zeppelin or the Stones were going to do it unless we just got on to it. So I got cracking with the guys from Apple.
40You don't have to burn books, you don't have to rebel against teachers to rebel; to rebel is to truly own your own self.
41I never really saw my dad around when the Iron Maiden and the AC/DC were playing. But he knew what I was doing. I was just absorbing music. So he just kind of left me to my own devices.
