Firstly I'd like to thank you for visiting my website. It means a lot to me.
Ok, a bit about me. I chose the name MrHarvey as I think it works in describing my music which ranges in styles from folk to rock to indie and lots in between. My parents are scousers from Liverpool in the UK, thus come from the school of hard knocks with the accompanying crazy humour and musical tastes to boot.
I grew up listening to everything from Led Zeppelin, Queen, Midnight Oil, Janis Joplin, Elvis, The Moody Blues, ELO, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Blondie, Tom Waits, Hunters And Collectors, Elton John, Leonard Cohen, Johnny Cash, Jethro Tull and everything in between.
I proudly have many of those bands first release, first press vinyl in my record collection at home.
Thanks Mum and Dad 👍
Which brings me to my music. I used to be a drummer as a teenager and picked up a guitar as a New Year's resolution in 2015. On guitar I was only intending to play covers well enough to mildly entertain my drunken friends.
That is until 2016 came along and I decided to start writing my own material. So far to date I've written over 40 songs ranging in styles and content but many of them reflect my own beliefs and values.
I'm a cancer / pig, super emotional, that loves to indulge and I'm a huge believer in social justice, empathy, love and freedom. In contrast to that I'm massively anti over regulation, environmental rape and bureaucratic bungling.
So I hope what you get from my music is an honest reflection of myself, my beliefs and my experiences.
Sometimes joyous, sometimes painfully sad and stark, and often politically incorrect. I've truly had an amazing life and I've been blessed with my incredible friends and family all the way.
I'm a prospector of life, always searching for new gems, experiences and ways to share my thoughts and dreams!
Introducing Mr Harvey.
I hope you enjoy the ride as much as I am and if you do, please spread the word.
