The dark bird drifted with the wind never wanting to plant its feet.
h.eldritch is a restless soul. h. eldritch is a project by singer, songwriter and producer Harry Houseago, existing on the fringes of indie folk, dirty electronica and ambient music.
With little regard for genre or convention, his debut EP ‘Trouble EnoughWill Find Us’ (produced with Tim Morris (Enter Shikari) and mastered by Dick Beetham (Alt-J, Seth Lakeman) flew in the face of all expectations of an indie-folk singer songwriter.
His unmistakable sound and thrilling live show won him the opening slot on the main stage of the Bath Festival 70th Anniversary - on the same stage headlined by Paloma Faith and Robert Plant.
Despite the COVID-19 lockdown, h. eldritch held a COVID-safe sold out show at the Bedford Balham in October of 2020, followed by a flurry of gigs at the end of the year before lockdown restrictions halted them once a gain. The rest of the time, h. eldritch was live streaming, writing, and recording a series of singles to be released throughout 2021, which will be supported by a full-band tour.
These songs can be tender, childlike, beguiling, or replete with downbeat humour - but ultimately, they are all optimistic. Which might be just what we need right now.
