Harry Marshall at the OMEARA

On April 12th, in one of London’s trendiest and intimate venues, Harry Marshall put on a show that blended 50s high energy rock with slow acoustic ballads. Debuting his new single Mountain, Marshall’s stage presence was intense and connected with the entire crowd. His electric personality was contagious.

The Australian artist has been performing since he was a thirteen-year-old in Queensland. Since then, he’s played on a range of stages. From small local pubs, to supporting Mumford & Sons when he was seventeen. In 2016 he debuted his first single ‘Epilogue’ which charted internationally, reaching #19 on iTunes’ Indie Music chart. As well making to this list, it secured a quarter of a millions streams. Then in 2018 he released ‘Nowadays’ which also made it onto iTunes’ International Alternative chart.

As well as this, in the time he’s been living in London he’s managed to perform at some of the most iconic places, including: the O2 Indigo, The Lexington and The Camden Assembly. And on the 12th he returned to the place he saw his first ever gig in the city, the OMEARA, for a sold-out show.

The hype of the night was getting to hear his newest single, Mountain. This raw, almost haunting, song shows off Marshall’s ability to transfer the deepest emotions onto lyrics on a page. When he was interviewed by Celeb Mix, he described that,

’Mountain’ was written at a time of extreme guilt about the torment of romance, lust and how it can all get confused with what love actually is. When someone’s loyalty and trust are gone, but somehow they can still be as grounded as ever.”

Marshall and his band performed completely as one and the entire room was captivated by his newest track. And for those who have been following Harry for a few years it was an amazing moment when he switched to an acoustic guitar and played his first single.

Supported by two fantastic acts: Laura Goldthorp, whose acoustic alt-folk/pop melodies were a pleasure to listen to and the epic Deep Deep Water who gave an edge to the evening, the whole gig was an evening I’m sure many will be talking about.

Marshall summed what he wanted the mood to be when he explained to Celeb Mix, ‘I want to make you dance and cry and laugh and literally feel everything it is to be human.’

All of the acts were insaneO, and it was great to experience their unique sounds live – so follow them on Spotify!
