‘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, Chicks, Boo Hewerdine, Bill Withers, Cyndi Lauper, Kate Bush, Clyde Stubblefield, Bernard Purdie, Herbie Hancock, George Benson, Shania Twain and Eric Clapton. Varied, but always music that stirs our hearts.
It’s been a Long, Hard Road, and we’ve had a couple of tough years with unexpected changes of line-up, illnesses and other problems, so we are currently taking an indefinite break. We hope to be back in some shape or form sometime in the future.
This website holds songs, recordings, photos and memories for you to enjoy from 14-years of Hargreaves. Also some news about side projects and new adventures. See you again sometime, once we’ve been Kissed Better and Sent on Our Way.

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. Other tracks are available elsewhere in the site.
