The A&R Dept & Ofttime Production, along with Dew Process and UMA, are delighted to announce today that Melbourne funk, soul and rock virtuoso Harts has become a part of the Dew Process family.
We challenge you to find a more talented artist on the planet, let alone in the country. Darren Harts is a master of vocals, guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, and production, so much so that he was anointed by the late, great Prince himself as an artist in his own image, and with whom he spent time jamming with at his Paisley Park Studios in Minneapolis.
You can hear that influence, as well as those of other legends like Stevie Wonder, Jimi Hendrix and Queen in the staggering talent tattooed all over his current hit single, ‘Peculiar’, which has been flooding the triple j airwaves in recent months. A funkified dance floor jam, it’s been inspiring swagger fuelled struts everywhere since its release back in February.
Harts released his debut album Daydreamer to mass acclaim in 2014, and has since been touring non stop both locally and internationally, having already wowed the audiences of Splendour In The Grass, Groovin’ The Moo, Byron Bay Bluesfest, and Falls Festival to name just a few.
His management team The A&R Dept & Ofttime Production have also expressed their excitement to be teaming up DP/UMA to release Harts’ music.
“After seven years of building and developing the Harts brand independently, we felt it was the right time to partner up with Paul and the DP team! We’re pumped!!!”
