6.45pm Harry Zalega - Growing up in the Chapel Allerton area, Harry Zalega has been listening to a diverse range of music all of his life; from the soulful singing of Ray Charles and Sam Cooke to bands such as Coldplay and Keane, Harry has taken influence from all areas of the music spectrum and this is something displayed within his music. Since learning guitar at a young age, Harry has been playing gigs around the music venues of his hometown for the last 6 years. Playing a wide range of originals and covers, and later taking up piano, he never really knew what direction to take his music; however all the experimenting has been the making of the sound which is Harry Zalega today. His first release 'Run Away' exhibits soulful singing with synth bass whilst still retaining a classic feel, creating a nostalgic breath of fresh air. The song captures the listener from the off with its dramatic intro and retains this feeling throughout as it ventures through the abundance of influences which Harry has grown up with. Facebook:
