Growing up in Walthamstow, East London and rural Queensland, Australia, Harry Heart became an accidental multi-instrumentalist as a teenager, receiving national airplay from triple j (AU) and touring nationally in two acts before finishing high school. This was the start of a life fuelled by song-writing for the young artist.
By 2014, Heart had established himself in Sydney, Australia with a five-piece band, The Harry Heart Chrysalis, comprised of performers from a variety of Australian bands. The EP Bodensee and Other False Stories was released unofficially the same year (only 100 physical copies of the EP were pressed), followed by an Australian tour and the development of a new direction in Heart’s song-writing. 2016 saw the release of three singles, Flowers [The Retaliation], Baby Calm Down, and Epiphany, all of which embodied a new sincerity and weight to Heart’s writing style.
Following a wave of acclaim in Australia and the UK for the single Baby Calm Down, Harry Heart retreated to the west coast of Australia to piece together a soothing EP, titled Sun Follows, in a heritage-listed warehouse by the sea. After supporting acclaimed acts Radical Face (US) and Lewis Watson (UK) on their AU tours, Heart delved into his many years of acoustic writing in a big way for the first time. After the one-year acoustic sabbatical in Western Australia, encapsulated by the Sun Follows EP (featured on Apple Music’s UK ‘A-List: Singer/Songwriter’ and ‘Acoustic Chill’ playlists and hitting 300,000 streams), Harry Heart returned to Sydney with a change of pace.
In 2018, Heart released singles Twenty Five and Ninety Six, recorded in Sydney in Heart’s “musical home” at Arthur St Studios, mixed in Shanghai’s Metropole Studios by long-time collaborator Vincent Nydam, and finally mastered by Brian Lucey in L.A. These were the first two cuts from the First Endorphin EP released in September 2018.
2019 sees Harry Heart returning to the UK on his first ever national acoustic tour in association with Coffee House Sessions, while working on a currently unannounced upcoming release.
Heart’s unique style of moody, alternative rock mixes his undeniable English influences with the stadium-bound sounds of US acts such as The Killers and Kings of Leon. Harry Heart already carries ten years of song-writing experience under his belt, enabling him with a musical maturity beyond his years.
