- Lonely Harp Samuels 4:45
Harp Samuels is an alternative singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist with a unique, modern, emotional and beautiful style. Dedicated and passionate about art in all its forms, he is also a professional photographer who works in film, and has either shot or painted his own album covers and all related artwork. His debut release, Getting There, rides in on a wave of creative acclaim: the track ‘Ghost-Town’ received terrestrial radio airplay and ‘Taken by Beauty’ was featured at #14 on Grammy Award nominated producer Al Walser’s Weekly Top Twenty radio show out of Los Angeles.
Though this is his first solo EP, Harp is by no means new to the craft. He has traveled and performed internationally,
done session work for other artists and has composed music for television, having songs placed in motion pictures as well as scoring two short films. He writes, records and produces all of his own material, and is deeply involved in his own video productions, somehow finding time to collaborate with others whenever he has the opportunity. In love with travel, people, music, film and psychology, he cites influences from artists such as Damien Rice, Bon Iver, The Civil Wars and John Mayer, as well as soundtrack composers Thomas Newman and John Powell.
Beyond the music, Harp has won awards for his photography and runs photography expos all over his native Australia. Stating an obsession with beauty in all its forms, he is doing music because of the emotional and healing impact it can have: That a vulnerable and well-crafted song can offer the strength to help us endure whatever we are going through at the most difficult of times, that is truly a noble thing to want to share with the world.
