Prism consisting of singer Ron Tabak, and Harlow's former Seeds of Time bandmates Lindsay Mitchell, John Hall, and Rocket Norton.

At the time a young Bryan Adams began writing songs for Prism with band founder and "Spaceship Superstar" writer Jim Vallance (a.k.a. "Rodney Higgs"). While the Adams-Vallance partnership would fuel Bryan's future career, the co-writing around Prism led to Harlow-Adams-Vallance compositions on later Prism recordings.The 1979 Prism album Armageddon reached Double-Platinum status, with the 1980 follow-up Young and Restless featuring Harlow and Mitchell's compositions, including the title track. Harlow and Mitchell were nominated for composer of the year at the 1981 Juno awards for their song Young and Restless.The band's first greatest hits album, All the Best from Prism came later that year, as Prism picked up Juno awards for Group of The Year in 1981 and Producer of The Year for Fairbairn's work on Armageddon in 1980.In 1981 Prism recorded their fifth studio album Small Change with new lead singer Henry Small. Harlow left Prism in 1982 after the departures of Mitchell, Hall and Norton.While Harlow is often cited as bassist for Prism, more often he can be heard on guitar and slide work, duetting with himself on Take Me Away, and slide solos on such tracks as "You're Like The Wind" & "Stay".After departing Prism, Harlow performed in several local Vancouver bands including acts such as Dawn Patrol with drummer John Cody, The Buzz with former Prism bandmate, John Hall, Aftermath with Cody and former Prism bandmate, Lindsay Mitchell, and Barracudas! with Cody and "Skip" Prest.In 1984 after Prism, headed by manager Bruce Allan and fronted by Henry Small, ultimately spilt, Harlow and the other classic members of Prism were in talks of reforming. Plans were shut down however, after the death of lead vocalist, and Harlow's best friend, Ron Tabak, in December 1984.During the mid-1980s, Harlow began guest lecturing at Capilano University. This resulted in Harlow taking on a full-time position, teaching classes in songwriting, record production, music history and business. He remained at the university for 30 years, also stating he regularly had Jim Vallance guest lecture.Following the death of original vocalist Ron Tabak in 1984, Prism reformed in 1987 with members Harlow, Mitchell and Norton, adding vocalist Darcy Deutsch and keyboardist Andy Lorimer (formally of Simon Kaos). Harlow co-wrote the band's autobiographical single Good To Be Back with Jim Vallance and Bryan Adams, released in 1988. Prism recorded their next album "Jericho" in 1993 with Harlow contributing seven of the album's twelve tracks, including another Harlow-Adams-Vallance song "Way of the World".In 1991, Harlow, along with former Seeds of Time bandmates, reformed to produce their standalone album Immortal, including songs recorded in the late 1960s and early 1970s, as well as brand new songs.Harlow continued to perform with Prism, releasing the 2008 album "Big Black Sky" with Harlow on lead vocals and lead guitar. He wrote & co-wrote eleven of the thirteen tracks.In 2009 Prism re-recorded the single "Don't Let Him Know", originally recorded in 1981, with Harlow on lead vocal and guitar.After a Local Legends of Rock concert on May 22, 2015, Harlow and former bandmates John Hall, Rocket Norton, and Ab Bryant, decided to form a rock supergroup called The Authentics. The group was later joined by Skip Prest and Ray Ayotte to complete their six-piece lineup. The band played several sold-out shows in the Vancouver area and were a regular at Blue Frog Studios. Prest and Ayotte both left the band before the original four went into the studio to record their self-titled, debut EP The Authenics, which was released in 2019. The EP featured Prism songs written by Harlow as well as other covers.In 2021 Harlow was featured playing slide and rhythm guitar on Thor's song The Good Stuff from their album Alliance. A music video featuring Harlow was also released in January 2022.On January 11, 2022, Harlow officially announced the upcoming release of his debut solo album Now!, which was released on February 14, 2022.During an interview with Global News, Harlow announced that he would be releasing an archival album titled "Then", sometime in late 2022 or 2023.

Album:

“Now!” is the debut album from a very familiar face in Canadian music: AL HARLOW, founder member of ’80s AOR / Melodic Rock wonders PRiSM. All over the band’s history Harlow has been songwriter, bass player, guitarist and even lead vocalist but never released a solo album, and never its too late… Now!An experienced musician with more than four decades in the business, Al Harlow is a rock storyteller. “Al Harlow Now!” comprises ten riveting songs which tell his story, revealing his relentless spirit.Harlow’s stunning vocal range and soulful guitar is surrounded by powerhouse talent including guitarist Sean Kelly (LEE AARON), keyboardist / guitarist John Webster (RED RIDER, THE CULT) Mike Fraser, and other talented Canadians.From the explosive “Let It Go” to the world-weary, eternal optimism of “Way of the World”, Al Harlow takes you into his enigmatic journey. And yes, he rocks, mixing classic rock / melodic rock with an ’80s, timeless feel.A lot can be read into an album called ”Now”, sometimes a covert admission that something is wrong, sometimes a declaration that the act is still on top of what is happening (now), sometimes the beginning of a new chapter or sometimes a reflection of the experiences that has brought him – Harlow – this far.There is all of this in Al Harlow ”Now” but more of the last.He has known success and is the only remainder of the classic Prism line-up that people remember. There also have been side projects of varying worth and many compromises as the eventual leader of Prism.Through it all, Al has retained his style, influences and attitude, which is why people might have been waiting for him to make an album that reflects his character which ”Now” almost does.It isn’t a celebration of freedom but a thoughtful assessment of what has brought him to now…The album starts off with ‘Let It Go’, which acts as an address, a note to himself and has a rock and roll vitality that is encouraging. ‘He Doesn’t Live Here Anymore’ has a blues-rock grit that might recall The Beatles’ Come Together and is a reminder that Al is an accomplished guitarist. It’s also the first song to address the end of his marriage with a palpable anger. Conversely, ‘Meet You In The Sky’ speaks of hope for both him and ex-wife Leah.Al sings ‘Lonely Town’ with an almost falsetto voice – that is moving and suggests attention to the variety and effectiveness of the vocals. The pedal steel on ‘Rising Sun’ is more about adding a textural departure from the melodic rock nature of the album.Harlow’s early ’80s orientation appears in ‘My Mind Is Running Away With You’. Here, the Prism of ‘See Forever Eyes’ mees Bryan Adams.Speaking of Bryan Adams – and his partner Jim Vallance – both songwriter contributors to ’80s Prism albums, they deliver here another song: closer ‘Way Of The World’, an affecting statement with an optimistic philosophy.Al Harlow ”Now”, is the portrait of an older rocker who has survived for decades in the business, an album faithful to his roots and timeless from every corner.
