Back home from Berlin, Celebrating the release of his third electronic EP 'With Them, We're Free'
Supported by Yvy Maraey, who's also in NZ for an extended stay, bringing soulful tunes before the dance party begins with Harry's own downtempo grooves.
Harry Charles - Originally from Christchurch, Harry has been based in Berlin for the past 6 years. Honing his craft as a musician, producer and ultimately, as a person. He has immersed himself in all the musical delights of the city and with an artistic versatility, enjoys sitting in many different pockets of its thriving scene. His years have been defined by growth and collaboration, working predominantly as a guitarist, vocalist and drummer in various projects.
As a live musician, he has fallen in love with the world of electronica. Collecting inspiration from the city’s never-ending nighttime adventures into sound and dance, along with a mingle of magical encounters with the colourful personalities that come out to play, he couldn’t help but start producing his own bag of electronica tricks. He has returned to NZ this summer to perform his own take on downtempo music. Deep dance floor grooves, riddled with live guitar and vocals.
Yvy Maraey - Merging contemporary R&B with resonant Brazilian rhythms, emerging artist Yvy Maraey offers a fresh and soulful voice. Working with New Zealand based guitarist/producer Simon Abela, Yvy weaves playful melodies, chill beats and expressive vocals into her debut album. With a unique blend of European, antipodean and Latino elements, Yvy’s sound is laid-back and light, yet rooted in strong grooves that make you want to move.
Born between Berlin & Brazil, Yvy has a reverence for the natural world & indigenous culture balanced by an effervescent youthfulness that infuses her songwriting.
