Calm and understated, Bristol’s Harvey Causon is not looking to blow you away with a wall of sound. You’ll be blown away instead by his soft, glitching electronica, deft take on contemporary R&B, and reeled by his rich vocals, that sound far more world wearied than his 19 years.
With nods to other contemporary producers Jamie Isaac and James Blake, Harvey’s sound is pop at heart; but his clever, minimal production, rich, heart stopping vocal and dulcet guitar tones set him apart.
After moving to Bristol last year, Harvey quickly released his ‘Introspect EP’, a collection of songs that he had been sitting on for a while. Eclectic, but polished, the stand out song from the release, ‘Systems’ was given a remix from rising hip hop duo Cabrakid. This earned Harvey an appearance at 'Cabra’s' support slot with Loyle Carner after the rapper heard the track.
The first track off the young artists EP is a perfectly formed, intricate but spacey, pop song. With the lush, sparse instrumentation coupled with his smooth, beautiful vocal, it's easy to get drawn in. Like a less murky Spooky Black, Harvey has crafted a forward thinking, and impressive, first taste into what his music is about.
The success of his EP, and his enthusiasm, has led him to appear at The Great Escape, Dot To Dot and 2000 Trees Festivals whilst also supporting Hazel English at her Bristol Louisiana show.
Since then, Harvey has kept his head down, defining his sound with a three piece band and writing new material. A few guest vocal appearances on releases with Norwich’s Maya Law and Allergy Kid pieced together with some live jam leaks on his social media hint at future collaborative works.
Harvey is now joining forces with Bristol’s Leisure Records for a AA-side single. With both Harvey and Leisure’s forward thinking and keen aesthetic eyes, the single will be released as a poster, with the incredible album artwork (hand sketched by Maddy Weavers) and screen printed onto 12” x 12” card (coincidently, the size of a vinyl).
With blogs starting to focus their gaze on Harvey and an inclusion in Bristol Live Magazine’s ‘What’s New’ section in July, it only seems a matter of time before his heart-melting sound reaches a larger audience.
