USC alumni Kevin Harrison, highlighted this year's Relay for Life with a special concert for participants.  Harrison just released his first CD, "Lost and Found", on April 6.

Harrison says he was happy to have the opportunity to play at Relay for Life.

"It was awesome to come back and play in front of people I love and help out a great cause," he said.

He says to look out for more from him in the future, but being famous isn't his main goal.

"You know I'd be content just being able to make a decent living out of it but if more comes then that's awesome," he said.

Harrison says he first got into music in middle school.

"Well my dad was actually a professional for a little while he had to give it up to make a living for our family but he taught me how to play when I was about ten years old and I just kind of took it from there," Harrison said.

And he says he gains inspiration for his music from all parts of his life.

"A little of everywhere to be honest with you, Some heartbreak, I lost a friend a few years back that's what you "See you soon" is about and a lot of it is trying to find myself, figure out who I am and I think everybody goes through that," he said.

Harrison's debut CD is available through iTunes and Cdbaby.com.
