Harper Q&A

Your name:
Matt Broadbent.

Where are you from?
Cranham, Essex.

Name of band:
Harper.

Who else is in your band?
Daniel Bhattacharya-Lead Guitar/Backing Vocals
Jamie Simpson - Bass/Backing Vocals
Toby Thacker - Drums/Percussion

How would you describe yourselves?
Blues/alternative rock band formed in early 2013 in the nether regions between East London and Essex. 

Who are your main influences musically?
Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Queens of the Stone Age, Jack White (And accompanying side projects - The Dead Weather in particular).

What do you hope to achieve in music?
We'd really like to be able to do it as long as possible, becoming a formidable band both in the studio as well as on stage. Creatively, we're always looking to try new things, so one thing we hope to not achieve is repetition. 

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
I guess the release of our latest single, Feel So Hollow (Out 25th November 2013). The reaction to that so far has been great. We recorded it and produced it ourselves and to have had such a great response thus far is really amazing. 

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Honestly, there hasn't been one. Sure, there have been a few gigs that could have gone better, but there's not been a blip since Jamie and Toby joined back in Spring 2013. 

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
Feel So Hollow - It's our latest single and the best representation of our sound. It's dark, it's bluesy, and the groove is sure to get you on your feet. 

Where can we listen to it?




Where can we find out more about your music?
We're on the following social networks, if you could like us or follow us or whatever, it'd be appreciated. 
In November we launched our very own website too - We'll be doing some blogging of our own over there:

Anything else you’d like to say about your band/music that I forgot to ask?
Thanks for reading this far. If you like our stuff, cheers, pop down to a show sometime, it'd be cool to hang out.
