Weaving magical lyrics with beautiful sad and melancholic melodies and eclectic instrumentation, Harvey Summers is a unique solo artist. His new album, "La Marionette" is not only truly different to anything you have ever heard, it is also musical, organic and accessible.

A potted history -
I've written a lot for film and TV - currently working with director Jan Jung on some TV comedies. Sold a million solo chillout albums worldwide and had the pleasure of working with some beautiful musicians and people. Eg. Kenny Craddock, Paul McCartney, Nana Tsiboe, John Pearson, Russ Conway, Geno Washington, Abi Ryan and many others.
Play live often, and of course I love it. The best thing is when people in pubs tell you you are not going home until you've played Mustang Sally. Grief.
I love so much music. It's a cliche but hey, but I do love Daniel Lanois, Peter Gabriel, Jan Tiersen, Nick Cave, Nick Drake, The Staple Singers, Bob Dylan, and many more!
