Taking inspirations from FKJ and Flight Facilities, Adelaide duo Hartway are an exciting house and acid-jazz outfit bringing a fresh perspective to classic groove-based music. Riding on some serious momentum, Conor Barkway and Jack Degenhart joined forces with the vision of creating soulful electronic music, authentically mixed with organic elements. Crowned as the Fresh 92.7 Producer’s Series winners for 2017, the talented duo have quickly gained a reputation for their energetic and dynamic shows, earning them an esteemed slot at WOMADelaide 2018.
Hartway’s live performances take their audiences on a “captivating journey”, filled with “irresistible grooves and sharp hooks” – Yewth. Featuring their signature saxophone, keys and bongos, Hartway showcase their raw talent through an engaging live experience. Having now played in front of thousands, the duo have supported Touch Sensitive, Nina Las Vegas, Luke Million, Willow Beats and Timberwolf.

Lesley Williams)’ landed at #4 in Fresh 92.7’s listener voted Top 92 for 2017 - its popularity leading to a live performance on stage with Triple J host KLP during her national tour.
