Harry J Hart has been described as having a voice that melts hearts and delivering guitar licks that melt faces. Harry was first earmarked by local media at 14, named a Gold Coast Musician to Watch alongside Amy Shark. At 16 he travelled to Berklee to further his guitar studies, was a Queensland Music Awards finalist and named Bluesfest Busking’s Best Guitarist and hit #1 on Triple J Unearthed’s charts
Keen to develop his craft, Harry headed to LA to train under Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine), Nuno Bettencourt (Extreme), Bibi McGill (Beyoncé & Pink) and other guitar royalty. This 19-year-old has also twice travelled to Boston to study at Berklee College of Music's prestigious Guitar School.
Having shared the bill with Tones and I, Casey Barnes, Rick Price, Adam Brand and Daniel Champagne, Harry J Hart, is turning heads whenever and wherever he takes the stage. After playing Bluesfest in 2018 and 2019, JBeavis of Starving Kids wrote, "Harry J Hart is a young fella but has some serious singing and guitar chops.
