Dead Like Harry

Formed in 2003, Sheffield sextet Dead Like Harry consists of an eclectic mix of friends brought together by their love of writing and performing music.


Since their early teens, song writing brothers Matt and Samuel Taylor have been most at home in the spotlight, hitting the stages of various smoky Sheffield bars, from the tender age of fourteen for charismatic front man Samuel.


Joined by old school friend and vocalist Alice Faraday, talented rhythm section Robin Baker, John Redgrave and Adam Crofts, Dead Like Harry were ready to pen some fresh new tracks and put nearly a decades worth of material to good use.


The result is a sound coloured by rock, blues, country and even folk influences, but which remains at its centre an honest, from-the-heart collection of songs written and performed by a group of young friends who want nothing more than to make great music.


Dead Like Harry are currently collaborating with celebrated producers Alan Smyth and Dave Sanderson (Richard Hawley, Pulp, Arctic Monkeys) to make stand out records that live up to the live hype. Following the release of their first album, Stories From The Cellar in 2005, the band toured the UK as support for The Strawbs. 2006 saw the release of their album Red Dress, which lead to several festival appearances and another UK tour. By now the band had sold over 5000 albums. The Know The Joy of Good Living album was released in 2010, followed by another successful UK tour, which included several festival appearances. The band is due to release a new album, The Art of Anticipation, in June 2012 and will tour again in support of this.


The growing interest in Dead Like Harry can be seen at their regular captivating UK gigs, and in their rapidly growing fan base. The act retain an innate showmanship live, whether showcasing their talent in front of 6000 (such as recently at Sheffield Hallam FM Arena) or serenading a fan's girlfriend by moonlight for £20. This has led to further fantastic slots, such as supporting chart-toppers Scouting for Girls and being placed on the same bill as the legendary Paul Simon at the famous Cornbury festival in Oxford, as well as being picked to play at Glastonbury Festival 2009 by Q magazine and doing live sessions on major BBC radio stations.
