Lon­don-based Mal­tese trou­ba­dour, Rob Har­bour, is pre­par­ing to re­lease his de­but EP, ‘The Light­house’ this au­tumn on 13 Oc­to­ber through Hat Hair Records. Tak­ing its name­sake from one of the tracks on the al­bum, the EP is a labour of love that the singer song­writer has en­deav­our­ing to com­plete for nearly two years. In­flu­enced by an eclec­tic mix of artists such as Damien Rice, James Tay­lor, Emil­iana Tor­rini, and In­grid Michael­son, Har­bour crafted his new EP with hon­est, vivid, and de­scrip­tive song­writ­ing. His mu­sic, wrought with pas­sion and emo­tion, el­e­gantly har­nesses the power of Lon­don’s im­agery and fer­vour. ‘The Light­house’ is chock-full of su­perb in­stru­men­tal per­for­mances from an ar­ray of tal­ented mu­si­cians who came to aid Har­bour in his pur­suit. Gen­tle back­beats, melan­cholic cello, and haunt­ing back­ing vo­cals will in­stantly trans­port the lis­tener straight into the heart of a pen­sive, nos­tal­gic mo­ment in a bustling city. To com­mem­o­rate the oc­ca­sion, Rob Har­bour is em­bark­ing on a UK tour to pro­mote the EP, kick­ing things off with a launch party in cen­tral Lon­don on Oc­to­ber 13th. More events are slated through­out au­tumn and will be an­nounced shortly. Three years ago, Har­bour moved to Lon­don to at­tend the In­sti­tute of Con­tem­po­rary Mu­sic Per­for­mance. Prior to that, he had re­leased mu­sic in Malta un­der the duo ‘In­stincts’.

The new EP has Har­bour’s sig­na­ture Mediter­ranean style and in­flu­ence, though it’s also host to a splen­did sonic pal­ette that con­tin­ues to ex­pand for Har­bour as he lives in Lon­don.

Har­bour’s time in Lon­don has al­ready yielded some very no­table per­for­mances, in­clud­ing ap­pear­ances at Time Out’s Acous­tic East Fes­ti­val, the Lon­don Folk­fest Fringe, and Ox­jam Takeover in Clapham.
