LA-based artist Harlan is pleased to announce his second release, the 1984 EP, which came out digitally on September 25th. This follows his previous Native Son EP which was the perfect blend of funk, soul, and R&B. Now with the release of 1984, his music has taken on a new energy. Imagine Prince meets Genesis meets Gnarls Barkley.
Harlan grew up studying classical music. While studying cello at Berklee School of Music, Harlan decided one day to pick up his roommate’s guitar, having never played before, and wrote his first song. Soon the cello was replaced by the electric guitar and a musical style influenced by funk, soul, rock, R&B and 90’s hip-hop began pouring out. Harlan’s music is filled with memorable hooks and stone cold grooves.
