Reviews

Sapphire session 'Doors'

A sweet track from Stu Harcourt's new EP - more frank and gentle pop, strummed out on an acoustic guitar with violin accompaniment. 

Easy listening country cross-over. 

Coming of Age

`There is definitely some talent on show during these ten songs, the times when the music takes a funkier, jazzier feel is where he comes into his own'

Michael Edwards-Exclaim Magazine/Toronto

Goodtime Rushhour

'While it's clear Stu is more partial to a jazz inspired guitar lick, he doesn't let such inclinations tie him down. In fact he shows a commendable ability to skip genres on this 5 track EP ’Shane O’Donohue'
