Bio

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 in two acts before finishing high school.

Heart had established himself in Sydney, Australia with five-piece band The Harry Heart Chrysalis by the end of 2014. The EP Bodensee and Other False Stories was soon released, followed by a national Australian tour. 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.

Shortly after, Heart headed to Western Australia in 2017 to piece together the acoustic EP, Sun Follows, in a heritage-listed warehouse by the sea, after supporting Radical Face (US) and Lewis Watson (UK) on their AU tours. After the one-year acoustic sabbatical, Harry Heart returned to Sydney with a change of pace, and released singles Twenty Five and Ninety Six from the First Endorphin EP. The EP was self-recorded at Arthur St Studios, Sydney along with drummer Gordo, and mixed in Shanghai's Metropole Studios by long-time collaborator Vincent Nydam.

2019 saw Harry Heart's return to the UK on his first ever national acoustic tour with Coffee House Sessions, with the release of the new EP 'Hands in the Hive'. Now based in Manchester, Harry Heart continues to record and release new material in 2020, with no shortage of live shows and new music for 2021.

What a tasty treat. It's got so much movement. Reminds me of one of my favourite international band called Born Ruffians. Those soaring moments in the chorus capture you right away.
