The band name came from the imagination of one Daniel Jeffries over three decades ago.
Windowfish the 1984-1988 music project, was the collaboration of David Harrell’s original music, and Daniel Jeffries’ highly creative lyrics and performance art. It was the type of songwriting that you just KNEW would leave an indelible mark if it got published and in front of people. Sadly, the adolescent Windowfish fell apart before it ever happened as the songwriting duo went their separate ways …but the music and the passion never died. Harrell carried that organic writing style and the memory of what Windowfish was and could be for years always knowing deep down that eventually, something would come of it. Eventually is here, right where it belongs in the present moment.
The raw creativity of Daniel Jeffries has been replaced by the highly trained, refined lyric and vocal skills of Michael Clayton Moore. Moore wears a second hat as the band’s music producer, highlighting Harrell’s exceptional guitar skills. With inspirational new music that bridges the divide between classic rock and alternative rock, Windowfish lives, breathes, plays and sings.

David "Blade" Harrell
Guitarist | Songwriter
David Harrell’s brother handed him a nylon string guitar in the summer before high school and he never put it down. Entirely self-taught, Harrell rehearsed day and night striving to master the strings, all the while developing the ability to tap into the melodic music inside him. He earned the nickname “Blade” due to the lightning speed and intensity he exhibits with licks that cut through and stand out from the crowd. While he has great respect and gratitude to rock music greats and the chops to play classic rock, heavy metal and alternative rock, it has never made sense to him to play someone else’s compositions. Playing the guitar was always an extension of him with music flowing from his fingers organically. He is thrilled to share his unique art with you today. Harrell’s passion for creating original music started with the very first chord and continues to this day, as a major contributor of the music for the band Windowfish.
