How did the band form? Can you give a brief history of the band for people who don’t know?
Harriet was gigging successfully as a singer / songwriter around the Midlands, and had released an EP ‘Hidden Messages’ in 2015. Harriet and Neil met in 2016 and after originally agreeing to manage her, started playing and writing together and naturally became a duo…HARRIET!
Neil has played in many bands and worked with the likes of ‘The South’ (former Beautiful South), ‘Hugh Cornwell’, ‘Twisted Wheel’ and ‘New Model Army’ and this experience is fused with Harriet’s natural ability, fantastic voice and great songwriting.
HARRIET! have been gigging since December 2016, they have supported ‘The South’ at sold out shows in Chester, Clitheroe and Holmfirth and completed a short tour of Holland.
They are building up a loyal following playing around the UK.
What are you working on at the moment?
HARRIET! are about to release a ‘Double A side’ single ‘Just Sign / Those Three Words’ on CD, Vinyl and Download. This is available to pre-order on Monday 17th July and is released on Monday 14th August.
