Hailing from Southeast London, Hows Harry – comprised of Loz Andrew (Drums), Rupert Colegrave (Guitars), Ike Foulkes (Vocals), and Tom Davies (Bass), has been hard at work building a reputation as a thrilling live band.
The band has been crafting its unique sound from the very beginning, blending indie rock, dark pop, hip-hop, and countless other influences. This distinctive style caught the attention of fierce panda records, who signed How’s Harry after submitting to a ReverbNation Opportunity.
We sat down with How’s Harry to see how life has been going since being signed. In this interview, you’ll learn what makes the band so special, who the band’s resident goofball is, and much more.
Note: The following interview is guaranteed to make you hungry.
Ah, 2019. After another year filled with trials and tribulations, learning experiences, and the moments that made us, we’re graced with the opportunity to truly take stock of what the year meant and how we can improve on all that was (and was not) in 2018, and apply it to making 2019 our best year yet.
As exciting as a New Year is, it’s only as good as the promises you keep. Meaning, now that we’re a couple weeks in, it can be easy to slip into old habits, leaving your New Year’s resolutions in the dust.
Want to make sure that doesn’t happen? We’ve created a checklist to make sure you’re continuing to make the most of those resolutions now and throughout the year.
Everyone wants major placements on big name blogs —and understandably. Not only does a positive feature from them hold weight with their audience, but it’s a pretty big ego boost for the indie band that gets featured. The problem? The likelihood of a truly indie band getting featured is pretty slim.
But before you get too deflated, or angry, or go through the myriad of emotions you’re likely feeling when you accept that and let it sink in, I want to re-introduce you to something you’ve probably given very little thought, but is in fact your best shot at long term success: small blogs.
While indie hopefuls may view smaller blogs as beneath them, insisting they’re destined for great things (and they might be), they’re missing out on a crucial player in the music industry if they skip them. As both a blogger (for small and high tier sites) as well as a publicist that has placed my artists on both, I want to let you in on the secret of just why small blogs are the missing ingredient to your music career.
Tom Shawcroft is an indie-electronica singer, songwriter, and producer from Nottingham, UK. Over the past several years, Tom’s sound evolved from predominantly acoustic when he started making music as a teenager to a now unique style of production influenced heavily by his love for electronic music.
It’s that unique style that caught the attention of fierce panda, who he signed to after submitting to one of our opportunities.
“What we really like about the whole ReverbNation talent-spotting process is that it gives us a chance to think outside the A&R box. The fierce panda label is generally renowned for peddling shambolic indie noises but Tom comes from a totally pop background, and his finger-clicking beats and soulful vocals really made him stand out from the alt.rock crowd. It’s a modern sound in a world gone mad.”
