Harriet track

Here’s “Late Nights”, one of a set of demos I recorded at Phonogram Studios with Harriet Roberts, Jonny Short and Russ Courtenay. I’m particularly happy with the opening guitar and especially the minimal solo plus there’s Jon’s amazing bubbly bass 😉

We were managed by Rob Allen (brother of Leppard’s Rick) who went on to work with Taylor Swift amongst others. Sadly, red light nerves got to Harriet (who was incredibly young) and she’s not quite pitching perfectly, despite having a superb voice – in them days, autotune was just a dream. They gathered no interest from the labels and the project petered out. Harriet went on to great success with Russ, composing for Tina Turner amongst others. Below a few assorted images from the recordings.
