Ones To Watch: Harriet
Genre: Pop/Easy Listening
Harriet is a gorgeously enthralling young British singer/songwriter whose last track, ‘Broken For You’ boasts an impressive 2,000+ UK radio plays. Harriet’s lyrical craftsmanship and beguiling voice have a spell-binding effect on all who hear her, with the power to alter the face of some of our longest standing media, with Readers Digest creating their first ever ‘music podcast’ especially for her; and a request during a live performance on Gaby Roslin’s BBC Radio London Show for Harriet to ‘sing that again’ – an unprecedented request from the show!
International artists such as Rumer have stated that Harriet ‘sounds a lot like Karen Carpenter’, whist Denise Van Outen selected her as ‘An Artist To Introduce’ on Magic FM. Following sell-out live London shows throughout 2015/16, Harriet now addresses phenomenal public demand as she collaborates with producer and co-writer Steve Anderson (Kylie Minogue, Leona Lewis, Susan Boyle) to present her debut album, ‘Harriet’.
Harriet has received huge support from Radio 2 with all her releases to date, including numerous plays from Paul O’Grady, Graham Norton, Tony Blackburn, Steve Wright and Ken Bruce. She performed her original song, ‘Maybe This Christmas’ live on Graham Norton’s Seasonal Special in 2014, and four songs from her recent Christmas album on Paul O’Grady’s Christmas Day show last year. The legendary US presenter Larry Flick (Sirius XM, Billboard Editor) frequently champions Harriet’s music on his radio show. When interviewing her about her first EP ‘What’s Mine Is Yours’ he declared, “We are all going to remember this day. This girl is going to be a big star.” Harriet achieved iTunes chart success with her Christmas release and influential publications including Harpers Bazaar in Hong Kong and Shangay in Spain have all featured her with glowing reviews and predicted her as a major artist of the future.
Harriet has recently announced the release of her new single, ‘First and Last’, accompanied by her self-entitled album, ‘Harriet’ – both released simultaneously on October 7.
