Bio

From the hairbrush-microphone afternoons spent in her bedroom belting out every song of Missy Higgins when she was just a little small-town girl with big dreams, Harley Mavis has drawn from her roots and created her own unique combination of cruisy folk-rock.

Stemming largely from her all-female power-ballad influences, Harley presents a show of stellar songwriting - with heartbreaking lyrics, driving choruses and a unique understanding of her surroundings. Her songs represent everything it means to be young and in your 20s; through inexperienced relationships, moving from a small town to a big city, and beginning to find your feet in this big, bad world.

Stellar debut single ‘No Chance’ introduced us to Harley Mavis. The folk-rock gem turned heads; receiving radio and television attention, including airplay on both Triple J and Triple J Unearthed, and the video featuring on MTV Australia’s clip show.

Unapologetic and intriguing, Harley Mavis’ performances will have you energetic and on your feet just as quickly as slow dancing to her epic ballads. You’ll be hearing a lot more from this atmospheric rocker out of Sydney’s Inner-West - with new music on its way, she is sure to shine.

It's golden hour, every hour, when listening to Harley. This rises with strength and raw beauty and maintains that heat through out.
