“Honey” from Harvey is Eastside Radio’s Album Of The Week (12-18 Oct)
Harvey is a composer, vocalist, guitarist and trumpet player from the NSW coast who performs all around Sydney and regularly tours Australia, south-east Asia and Europe. On his travels Harvey has shared stages with some of his key musical influences including surf-roots musician Donavon Frankenreiter and guitar virtuoso Joe Robinson.
On this album “Honey”, which is his second full-length, he moves through the various sonic territory of soulful roots, blues, funk and reggae. I’ve always admired the confident simplicity of his arrangements, a fine example of the basics done well.
I can personally attest to the fact that his solo shows are worth leaving the house for, Harvey works with his loop pedal, guitar and trumpet to create multi-layered sound as he shifts through genres and styles. Look out for his duo The Milkshakes as well.
