Nick Harper - My musical discovery of 2016!
Between albums Nick is known for touring with a vengeance - he's now appeared at Glastonbury Festival six times - but also for his charity work devoting energy to fundraising projects as one of the organisers of Avebury Rocks in Wiltshire, raising substantial funds for a hospice near his home. In 2007 Harper's charity single Blue Sky Thinking from the album Miracles for Beginners went to No.1 in the iTunes charts with proceeds going to the Love Hope Strength Foundation (LHSF). Nick had just returned from Nepal after helping the foundation set a new world record for the highest gig on Earth near Mt Everest Base Camp. Nick has been on two further treks with LHSF in Peru and Tanzania fundraising for local medical centres.
Son of the legendary UK singer-songwriter Roy Harper, Nick was born in London and raised in Wiltshire. Having played the guitar from the age of 10 and surrounded by the likes of Keith Moon, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and Dave Gilmour as he grew up, it was no surprise when Nick made his recording debut on his father's Whatever Happened to Jugula? in 1985... .
