The Story

Just know that when it comes to London to L.A. Rock scene veteran Harry, truer words may have never been spoken...

For Harry, her mission to keep the spirit of rock 'n' roll alive and freshly beating takes a little tip from mother nature; sometimes you've got to strip everything back and start again. It's about breaking free of that old industry-toggled exoskeleton, like you were slipping out of a pair of broken heels, and saying “fuck it, it's time for something new!” Besides, adopting a glistening new skin never harmed anyone...unless you're Buffalo Bill.

See, it's with a tenacious and ever-evaluative process of preservation that allows Harry a little clarity on life and to continue being surrounded by everything she's loved about music, both socially and sonically, since the age of 14. Really the question is, when you've released 2 albums and already been the face of a $30 million marketing campaign for, the voice of a Rimmel commercial and been photographed by the legendary Mick Rock for a Playboy article (in which you're already breaking tradition by being blonde and fully-clothed), where exactly do you go next?
