For Nick Harper 2016 has been the most exciting year with a sell-out UK Spring tour supporting the third and final vinyl ‘retrospective’ vinyl LP, with one box to unite them all. He is also be sporting a new live album, ‘Hark!’ – a recording of songs from his award winning shows at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2003, which he will have with him at an extended run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August. This winter Nick is on tour with a band for the first time in ten years. With no Nick Harper solo tour planned for 2017 these shows are sure to sell out early and round off this celebratory year in style.
Son of the legendary UK singer-songwriter Roy Harper, Nick was born in London and raised in Wiltshire. Having played the guitar from the age of 10 and surrounded by the likes of Keith Moon, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and Dave Gilmour as he grew up, it was no surprise when Nick made his recording debut on his father’s Whatever Happened to Jugula? in 1985.
Nick’s talent and energy entranced Roy’s fans and it was inevitable that he would begin touring and recording in his own right. The 1994 EP Light at the End of the Kennel was swiftly followed by his powerful 1995 debut long player Seed prompting The Independent to describe him as “hugely talented”.
To call Nick a superlative singer/songwriter could put his highly lauded guitar talent in the shade, and to call him a guitarist’s guitarist might slight his distinctive, soulful voice and passionate songs.
