Dhani Harrison could have started releasing records well before he was 30, but the small matter of being a Beatle's son made him cautious about the musical career path. Now, with the upcoming debut release from his band thenewno2, he's embraced the inevitable.
"I did everything I could to not be a musician," Harrison tells Billboard.com. "I went to university (Brown), I worked as a designer, I competed in Olympic sport (rowing)...and I ended up being a musician. It's in the DNA, I guess."
That said, Harrison -- who's recorded with his father's band Traveling Wilburys and on his last album, "Brainwashed" as well as collaborating with Jakob Dylan, Rooney and Wu-Tang Clan -- also brought some lessons he gleaned from his father as he and creative partner Oli Hecks started working as the thenewno2, whose "You Are Here" comes out March 31 after several different "soft release" incarnations online.
