Biography

Ever since the age of eight, when neighbours gave him a small acoustic guitar from their holiday in Spain, music has been in Harry’s blood. They would be proud to know he still plays the guitar

Harry was classically trained on the piano from the age of nine and the organ from the age of twelve (though that hasn’t sent him blind)

From his mid to late teens he was part of a successful five-piece band playing pubs and working men’s clubs in the North of England; now that’s a real hard apprenticeship!

Since then he has continued to play and write music in all kinds of environments and with all kinds of musicians around the world

His influences include Stevie Ray Vaughan, the Shadows, Santana, the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Oasis, Beethoven and Mozart (yes, you read it right), the Mavericks, Motown, much contemporary music and a whole range of eclectic musical styles. Just take a look at his CD collection and you’d see what that means!

In recent years he has been concentrating on songwriting and studio recording

Harry has a remarkable ear (no, it’s not stuck on) – he has the ability to listen to a piece of music and analyse it accurately without reference to the score, both in terms of key, chords and structure – quite remarkable really. Also, his playing is likely to get the hairs standing up on the back of your neck every now and again!
