Lauded by Classic FM as one of the world's great improvisers', Harry's extraordinary talent has taken him worldwide with solo cabaret shows in the Albert Hall London, the Moulin Rouge Paris, Birmingham's Symphony Hall and the Manasterly Palace Cairo amongst dozens of others. He has given private audiences to HM the Queen at Sandringham and Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace as well as headlining at festivals worldwide from Barbados to Adelaide and launching the QM2 on her maiden voyage along with Dame Shirley Bassey.

Pianist and band-leader on Channel 4's Big Breakfast TV show for five years, he went on to be musical director on primetime BBC TV shows for three years and is currently a regular on The Now Show on Radio 4, Friday Night is Music Night on Radio 2 and the go-to improvisor for In Tune and many other shows on Radio 3 where presenter Iain Burnside said 'You can't be a pianist and not be a fan'.

His ability to play any tune in any style on request has led to over 3 million hits on youtube and appearances with everyone from David Bowie to Rod Stewart and Andrea Bocelli to Alfie Boe. He is currently musical director for Alexander Armstrong, running his nine piece band and undertaking all the writing and arrangements for three sell-out UK tours and a huge ITV Christmas special at the end of 2019.

During Lockdown Harry put out a daily musical distress signal which eventually ran to 300 tunes and was described as 'miraculous creativity' by Classic FM and 'astounding, regularly made me cry' by the Times.

‘What fun it must be to be able to play the piano like that, I wish I could do it.’
