Harry is in a hurry to make even more mu­sic

East Kilbride News - - THE TICKET -

Ruther­glen singer Harry Mul­venna has had to wait five years to re­lease his band’s de­but al­bum - and he al­ready can­not wait for the next.

The Harry and the Hen­der­son’s front­man will take to the stage at Stereo to­mor­row night, Thurs­day, to of­fi­cially launch Method of the Match­stick Men.

Al­ready avail­able on­line, the hard re­lease will mark the start of a new chap­ter in the band’s ca­reer.

And Harry, 25, hopes it will lead to more suc­cess in the fu­ture.

“I’d like to take the al­bum on tour, ini­tially in Scot­land and then the UK and a few places across Europe,” he said.

“My main aim is to get it out to as many dif­fer­ent peo­ple as pos­si­ble and hope­fully be able to make even more mu­sic.

“It would be great to be su­per suc­cess­ful, but the aim is al­ways to make more mu­sic.

“We started work­ing on it about a year and a half ago so it has been quite a long process. We had to self­fund it and did a bunch of gigs, so we are all re­ally ex­cited.

“It’s a buzz to get the hard copy for us, but a lot of peo­ple buy on­line now.”

The seven-piece band, which has mem­bers from Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang, have al­ready made waves on the Scot­tish mu­sic scene.

Their brand of coun­try, blues and rock has wooed au­di­ences and crit­ics alike all over Scot­land and they have played at venues such as Oran Mor and the Kelv­in­grove Band­stand as well as var­i­ous fes­ti­vals.

And their al­bum has al­ready been warmly re­ceived by mu­sic fans.

For­mer Trin­ity High pupil Harry said: “The feed­back has been re­ally good.

“We’ve had peo­ple mes­sage us or men­tion us on­line and they seem to re­ally like it.

“We just need to get more peo­ple to lis­ten to it now.”

Thurs­day’s gig will see them backed by a 10-piece band to recre­ate the string sounds on the al­bum.

Sup­port will come from Avo­cet, QUICK and Mir­a­cle Glass Com­pany.

Doors open at 7pm and tick­ets cost £7. They can be bought from http://har­ry­the­hen­der­sons. big­car­tel.com/prod­uct/debu­tal­bum-launch-ticket. Method of the Match­stick Men is on sale now.

It is avail­able on iTunes and Band­camp as well as avail­able to lis­ten to on Spo­tify.

Stereo is based at 22-24 Ren­field
