Tell us three things about yourself?
There not all too much I take seriously aside from my music. The day I cut my hair is the day I’ll flog my guitar. I am blessed with the people I have in my life.
How would you describe your music?
Who are your musical inspirations?
Shakey Graves, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin.
What was the first gig you ever went to and the first record you ever bought/downloaded?
Roger Waters, The Wall, 3Arena. AC/DC - Back in Black.
What’s your favourite song right now?
Jesse Winchester - Step by Step.
Favourite lyric of all time?
"He not busy being born is busy dyin’" - Bob Dylan.
If you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life, what would it be?
American Pie - Don McLean. Which reminds me I was once stranded on a desert island and the three albums I brought with me didn’t help one bit.
Where can people find your music/more information?
So far my music has only been delivered at performances and shows. Lack of Light is my debut release and found on all streaming platforms. You can check me out on Instagram @harry.fennell.
