‘Hargreaves’ plays breezy Americana music with blues, soul and funk influences and a distinctive sound and style.
We write original songs and rearrange songs that mean something special to us. We draw inspiration from a wide range of musicians, including; Steve Earle, Pink, Queen, Thin Lizzy, Chicks, Boo Hewerdine, Bill Withers, Cyndi Lauper, Kate Bush, Clyde Stubblefield, Bernard Purdie, Herbie Hancock, George Benson, and Eric Clapton. Varied, but always music that stirs our hearts.

This website holds songs, recordings, photos and memories for you to enjoy from 14-years of Hargreaves. See you again sometime this year, once we’ve been Kissed Better and Sent on Our Way.

Here’s a sample of our current and previous work.

Meantime, please enjoy these tracks for free on our website. Other tracks are available elsewhere in the site.
