George Clinton/Parliament-Funkadelic and Elle Varner Join the HARMAN Professional Solutions Ambassadors Program

World-renowned artists join the HARMAN Professional Solutions Ambassadors program to share their passion and connect with music fans in more meaningful ways 

NORTHRIDGE, Calif.—HARMAN Professional Solutions today announced that Grammy Award winning artists funk icon George Clinton and singer-songwriter Elle Varner have joined the HARMAN Professional Solutions Ambassadors program. The HARMAN Professional Solutions Ambassadors program gives the world’s leading artists a powerful new platform to share their passion for music and audio technology.

As the founder of Parliament-Funkadelic, funk music pioneer George Clinton needs no introduction. With a career that spans more than five decades, Clinton revolutionized R&B, funk, and soul music with classic hits like “Atomic Dog,” “Testify,” “Give Up the Funk,” “Flashlight” and “One Nation Under a Groove."

“For me? It’s all about the music. When I’m on stage I need to connect with the people and they need to connect me. Without the right audio system I cannot make that connection and that’s why HARMAN’s gear is so important to me,” said Clinton. “I’ve been using AKG, Crown and JBL for decades, not only in my recording, but in my performances. I’m always asked, ‘why these brands for all these years?’ I didn’t know there was anything else. Being an Ambassador is a deeper way for me to be a part of the HARMAN family that I love.”

Electrifying singer-songwriter Elle Varner is one of the most exciting and promising voices in American pop, soul and R&B. Since releasing her debut album in 2012, Varner has collaborated with leading artists like J. Cole, Miguel, The Roots, and Chance the Rapper. Her song “Refill” received a Grammy nomination in 2012 for Best R&B Song, and she won a 2017 Best Rap Album Grammy for her songwriting contributions on Chance the Rapper’s album “Coloring Book”. Elle has worked with HARMAN Professional Solutions in 2017 by starring in the launch video for the EON ONE PRO.

“I’m excited and honored to join the HARMAN Professional family,” said Varner. “World-class HARMAN brands like JBL and AKG help me deliver my best performances, and I’m eager to partner with HARMAN to reach new fans and share the industry’s most innovative audio gear with fellow musicians.”

Not only will HARMAN Pro Ambassadors receive the latest HARMAN Professional audio gear from legendary brands like JBL and AKG, HARMAN will share exclusive content from the artists to showcase their talent and help them connect with a massive worldwide network of HARMAN customers and music fans.

The HARMAN Professional Solutions Ambassadors program will in the coming months unveil more artist and audio professional partnerships; from composers and engineers to break-out and veteran musicians.
