The Harriets are a Leeds-based alternative pop and rock four-piece, fronted by lead vocalists Daniel Parker-Smith and Ben Schrodel. They are joined for live shows by Jess Womack on keys and Ryan Bailey on drums. With accomplished songwriting, unmistakable three-part vocals and a live show that lifts the soul, they are making waves in the UK music scene.
After being nominated for Glastonbury Emerging Talent and Record Store Day Unsigned in 2019, the band released their 2020 debut album ‘Hopefuls’ to great success. International sales in Europe and the US, a four-star review by Rolling Stone Magazine DE, airplay on BBC Radio and a regional TV feature have given the band a new platform for their music.
"Irresistible" ★★★★, Rolling Stone Magazine DE
"I challenge you not to instantly fall in love with ‘Cafe Disco’ and The Harriets. This is a song to take you straight back to youth. A great live band too!", Glastonbury Emerging Talent.
"To me, their song Television sounds like a lost classic recording from CBGB's era New York, which in my book is high praise indeed”, Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music
“Uber catchy songs. This single is another reason why we think they'll soon be everyone's favourite new band too”, Jumbo Records, Leeds
"Independent music as it should be, raw and real, but combining that with a sound so pop-infused is unique, and worth taking note of”, Gigride
"There are so many bands out there trying to achieve what they seemingly manage to do so effortlessly... that classic and timeless sound", Yorkshire Post
