Teen sensation Harvey has been signed by Universal Music just months before his 15th birthday and has been billed as London Records priority act for 2014. After making waves online he recently played to over 25,000 fans alongside acts such as Jessie J and JLS at the Madejski Stadium - his first gig since uploading several videos to YouTube from his kitchen. Frequently trending worldwide Harvey has been using the summer holidays to record his debut EP after strong demand from his fan base to release material.
Signed by A&R Rich Castillo who has found, overseen and broken artists such as N-Dubz and Charlie Brown and managed by Blair Dreelan (Union J, Overload) the remainder of 2013 and the start of 2014 look set to establish Harvey as one of the brightest new music talents to break onto the scene.
Rich Castillo comments:
"Harvey is one of the most exciting young talents I've seen in years. After seeing him online I met him straight away. His voice is unique and his delivery is that of someone twice his age. He's a natural, technical singer with a hunger for perfection. His strong and ever growing social media following already at this early stage is getting bigger daily. Harvey is a serious 'One To Watch' for 2014."
Blair Dreelan CEO of Alpha Dog Management adds:
"Working in the industry for the best part of 13 years. I discovered Harvey when he posted a cover of Mirrors by Justin Timberlake on Facebook - from that 30 second clip I saw I was instantly blown away. From watching his transition from singing acapella in the kitchen to performing to 25,000 fans at his first gig Harvey is totally unique and a one off. I saw the rise of 'Lickle Rinsers' AKA N-Dubz and the hunger that Rich possessed to get this street urban act off the floor. The remainder of 2013 and 2014 are shaping up to be an incredible time for Harvey as we launch him in the UK and build him as an international artist."
