Harrison Perks

Owner | MD | Producer | Songwriter | Teacher | Artist Manager | Videographer | Photographer | Multi Instrumentalist | Designer

Harrison’s affinity with music has been apparent since the age of 3.

From a young age he studied piano, becoming highly accomplished in playing and composing and this helped him develop his skills and become a multi-instrumentalist. Since then, he’s as at home with drums, violin, bass and guitar as he is with piano. In addition, through his love of classical music, he’s gained a fine understanding of the theory of music and created a wide-ranging approach to different playing styles. He’s also adept at vocal, composition and songwriting skills.

He also has a long history of writing music for bands and solo projects.

Over the past 10 years, he’s composed more than a thousand pieces of music. Many of these have led to assistance in publishing within the film and TV industries – and it’s enabled him to run his own studio where he can professionally produce and record a wide spectrum of music for a variety of artists. Harrison is versatile across the musical genres and excels at Pop, Acoustic, Rock and Film music. He also has a vast amount of experience in production and has worked with artists ranging from soloists and bands to full orchestras.

In 2008 Harrison studied Music Performance at university.

After finishing university, he worked in several bands which gave him vital experience in performance and composition across the local music scene. Further exposure was gained by supporting major bands up and down the country at such prestigious venues as The Isle Of Wight Festival and London’s O2 Academy. This has helped him develop a thorough understanding of the music industry and how it works. An important by-product has been the creation of a network of vital musical contacts at both local and national level.

Harrison is now noted as being one of the rising producers in the South of the UK.

2014 saw him working with upcoming artists to develop and manage their styles. This enabled them to improve their techniques and start to become professional musicians. He achieved this by creating a customized Artist Development Plan which he runs at his studio. This comprehensive package builds on his experience in performance, writing and production and he aims for what he calls “that Nashville quality and sound” to his work. He aims for high standards but is also very understanding of what the artist needs. With patience and guidance, the outcome is always one that guarantees satisfaction.

He’s still studying and taking courses in music production himself, believing that continued development and learning is fundamental to his success.

With recent courses taken in Artist Management and production from prestigious schools like Berklee College of Music and SAE, Harrison is confident that he’ll provide the best skills he can to his clients. And with the new ad successful music facility at his studio, artists and clients have all they need under one roof.
With his all-round set of skills – advanced producer, established songwriter, artist manager, videographer and tutor across 10 instruments – Harrison knows that artists have access to a single, affordable solution to their needs.
HP Music is very definitely the place to go.

BROGAN MURPHY

Vocal Teacher

Brogan Murphy has loved to sing for as long as she can remember – something that is to be expected from someone who grew up in a musical family. Originally from London, she moved down to Hampshire at 14 and begun taking her singing more seriously, realising it was something she wanted to turn into more than just a hobby.

At 16, Brogan started gigging at charity events and competitions, taking to it with ease. In 2013, she started the vocal course at ACMR, Bournemouth. Brogan Murphy, the stand out vocalist of the year group, left with two Distinction Stars and after the summer, became a singing student at ACM University, in Guildford.

Brogan Murphy’s inspiration comes from artists, such as: Beyoncé, Aritha Franklin, Etta James, Queen and Michael Jackson. And, now returning from Guildford, she doesn’t just plan to focus on her own artist’s career, but she wants to pass on what she has learned in singing and help people discover their own voices. It is because of this, Brogan has become a member of HP Music’s welcoming team, excited to work in the friendly, supportive atmosphere and put further use to the acoustically treated, fully-equipped teaching rooms.

JOSH ROSE

Drum Teacher | Session Drummer

Josh started playing drums at the age of 15, and was self taught up to the age of 18. He started off by playing along to the bands and music he was into at the time. It wasn’t long before he realised he had found his passion in drums and was already in his first band and gigging by the age of 18. Josh decided to pursue a career in music and was accepted into the Academy Of Music And Sound in Southampton in 2010. Here he studied for 4 years to achieve a BA Hons in performance music.

In late 2013, during his time at the Academy, he joined the rock band, Saints Of Sin. He is still with the band today and has amassed a wealth of gigging experience. Josh has played at some major festivals including the Isle Of Wight, Hard Rock Hell, Insomnia 49 and 50 and The Great Dorset Steam Fair. He has also played some famous venues up and down the country. A few stand out examples are: The O2 Academy – Boscombe, Mr Kyps – Poole, The Robin 2 – Bilston, The Globe – Cardiff, and the The Joiners – Southampto.

At the same time Josh joined his band, he also landed his first teaching job, where he established himself as the leading drum tutor. As well as this, he began to teach private one-to-one lessons, leading him to become a versatile and experienced drum teacher.

Now, Josh’s teaching has lead him to HP Music and, as well as becoming HP’s drum tutor, he is also the in-house drummer for HP Music, where he has already featured on a number of country and pop tracks.
