‘Hargreaves’ plays breezy Americana music with blues, country, 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; Gretchen Peters, Steve Earle, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Pink, Queen, Thin Lizzy, Dixie Chicks, Boo Hewerdine, Bill Withers, Cyndi Lauper, Kate Bush, Clyde Stubblefield, Bernard Purdie, Herbie Hancock, George Benson, Shania Twain, The Lighthouse Family, John Newman, Elton John and Eric Clapton. Varied, but always music that stirs our hearts.
We’re pleased to announce that we have been joined by three new faces. Liam Mabbatt on drums, and Lou Bygrave up-front and centre as our lead vocalist, and Lauren ‘Dolly’ Woolley on keys, vocals, sax, trumpet and anything else we can think of.
Sometime soon we promise to release our second album ‘Difficult’, and we plan to record an EP later this year with our new lineup.
Here’s a sample of our current and previous work. You can find ‘Sooner But Not Later‘ and the ‘Long, Hard Road‘ EP on Apple Music and iTunes, though we’re not sure who’s collecting the royalties these days (doesn’t seem to be us). Meantime, please enjoy these tracks for free on our website.
