Need A Little Funk In Your Life? Take A Moment To Discover Harts

Harts 2014

It’s not every day that Prince compliments a relatively unknown talent, but upon hearing the work of Harts, the man who gave us Purple Rain remarked, “He reminds me of how I was at that age.”

I could go on and on about the way I felt the first time I heard Harts’ latest single, “Angels Walk Below,” but after reading that comment from Prince is there really anything I could write that would sway you more than his word? Harts, whose real name remains a mystery to me, offers a funky take on dance pop that is ripe with riffs and fuzzy guitar work to spare. He wrote, performed, recorded, produced and mixed “Angels Walk Alone” himself in his bedroom studio, but while listening to it you would swear he had a big name producer manning the boards. Clear some space in your immediate area for fancy footwork and hit play on the widget below to discover what may very well become the soundtrack to your afternoon:

I know the radio has become obsessed with Justin Timberlake’s version of a throwback sound, but Harts, for me, is the real deal. He brings an authentic and unique take on a classic sound that is both catchy and technically impressive. Do you agree? Comment below and let us know your thoughts.

Harts is planning to release his debut album later this year. We’ll bring you more information on that release as soon as additional information becomes available.
