Harts' New Album Out Today

Harts has already had a huge 2016, releasing two hit radio singles in Australia and touring non-stop, including shows in the UK and Europe earlier in the year. He is now poised to unleash his sophomore album, the follow up to his critically acclaimed debut Daydreamer in 2014, and the follow up EP Breakthrough in 2015 – records that caught the attention of some of the biggest names in music, including the late, great icon Prince, who became a mentor to the young Melbourne phenom. Smoke Fire Hope Desire was remarkably self-recorded in Harts' home studio in Melbourne – its impressive scope the culmination of what the “one-man music-making machine," attributes to spending years developing his sound as a performer and a producer. The album is the sound of an artist who has locked his musical identity and his voice into his sights, and as Harts admits has allowed himself to be influenced by, “a lot of what I was seeing in the world around me - very current day issues, mixed with my own thoughts and challenges in my life.” "Harts has created a piece of work holding a solid promise to be sealed as a masterpiece once translated onto the live circuit." – TheMusic.com.au - 4.5✮ Album Review "SFHD is a diverse, considered accomplishment." - Rolling Stone Australia “A mammoth effort, pulling together a pulsating bass line and glittering top-line guitar riffs underneath Harts’ own powerful vocals.” – Music Feeds ‘Power’ review "There’s every indication that Harts is set to be one of Australia’s next major rock exports." – Tone Deaf
