HarleyMaxwell

Harley Maxwell is a rare musical lyricist who can adopt many guises. Blessed with a warm rasp and sweet flow he has the ability to shift effortlessly between genres and styles. Maxwell’s influences stemmed from both rap and electronic dance music. The likes of Mos Def, Kano, Foreign Beggars to Groove Armada, Artful Dodger and Fatboy Slim have been longstanding influences from a young age. Having first started recording music at the age of 15, after visiting a friend’s studio in the mountains of San Joan he instantly found his forte.

Since then Harley has skipped between Ibiza, Brighton and London. Taking inspiration from all locations, finely tuning his own style. His sound could best be described as a special blend of abstract verses with poetic and harmonious rhyme schemes packed with is trademark charm and witty word play.

Harley says “I drew a lot of influence from garage and grime so some flow schemes can come across very English. The power of music is immense, how it can re-tune your wavelength and entirely alter your mood or emotion in three and half minutes is crazy. I like to try and use it to install feelings, recall memories or tell stories to people. A good record is somewhat organic, high grade food for the soul”.

Recent work and production has seen Harley combine with the likes of Nightmares on Wax and Tom Peppe, amongst other Brighton / London based artists on tracks such as 90 Degrees, Sure Thing and 2Sweet4me. His latest and most anticipated release saw him collaborate with Frankie Stew, HaZod and Warren Xclnce to produce his listeners’ favorite track to date ‘Delicate Eloquence’. More recent projects have seen Harley take Jazz influences from Duke Ellington to produce a more low key Jamie T styled track…

Harley Maxwell has the voice, message and experience to perfectly fuse modern music genres. He can be best summarized by the term ‘Delicate Eloquence’ which he penned himself and can share with the musical landscape of the of the future.
