She describes her own music as “a mix of my dads youth and a mine.

When I write, there's definitely a blend of those older vocals with the contemporary indie melodies which I listened to through choice..."
Labelled by some as a ‘360 artist’, in addition to the song writing Harriet takes responsibility for all aspects of her career. Her determination to succeed is evident in the effort and passion she pours into her artistry, which goes unmatched.
