The Album
Recorded locally at 8-track Elephant Studios near the Borough, “Even When I’m Not” reveals Harry’s wide taste and varied influences, taking in disco and Lou Reed, reggae and Ian Dury. His vocals reveal a sensitive character presenting himself with bravado and deadpan humour, backed with the danceable rhythms of his bass-playing
