JUSTIN HARMER


Harper Harmer first trod the  boards as a tap dancer a long time ago in a galaxy far far away... His very shortlived dance career was briefly revisited at Sadlers Wells in the late 80's with the National Youth Music Theatre. From this dizzy square dancing height he went on to be the lead (and a deluded chicken chasing knight errant) in one of their 3 production's at the Edinburgh International Festival, alongside Jude Law who was the lead that year in their production of Joseph... A long time ago in a galaxy of stars far far away...

Earlier that year while the Berlin wall was busy falling he appeared on French TV alongside Dido in an opera by the name of Dido and Aeneas. He was the first white artist to appear at the MOBO awards (no it was not Jamie Cullum it was me!) as keyboard player for the band Streetwise. A brief 8 year spell at university saw him play a jester in full jesting gear, a comedy king, the season winter, the concept of sleep, a diabolists sidekick and an  onanist disturbing policeman (as well as weddings and funerals). There was the odd sighting of an old testament prophet or two and various Christ's and pontius pilates.

Otherwise he has appeared as death in a codpiece and an elderly owl in Marbella. He has also played one of the three kings in westminster abbey, sung at Barbican Hall, st John's smith square, queen elizabeth hall, wigmore hall, albert hall (canteen), aldeburgh, edinburgh fringe (as a gangster), york minster, chelsea festival (as another old testament character) and sightread his way round more  choirs than is advisable.

As an ivory tickler he worked for the Royal Ballet School for 10 years and the Royal Academy of Dancing for 2. He performed beethoven's emperor concerto this february (which was almost fun for the other pianist!) He has sung as soloist in a blitzkrieg of european countries as well as playing various biblical characters in jerusalem.

He has played on screen a very convincing mad organist and several vicars... Oh and a bond villain in a towel (it wasn't yellow though.) He made his professional debut as a ship's cook. Harper has sung alongside Alfie Boe and James Rutherford, Sarah Fox, Leigh Melrose, and perfomed for Liz and Phil and various cousins of theirs, John (Major), Maggie and Denis, Edward (windsor), andrew (l-w),  various archbishops (including the rainbow one) uncle tom cobbley and various papered and hallowed halls.

He is by nature optimistic that he WILL be recording this coming March with Basstone music an album of his compositions but you never know, the court case could go belly up...
He is a published and performing poet. A miracle in which his knee was involved was reported on the back page of the catholic herald but that was on the top deck of a bus in peckham which is, as they say, a galaxy far far away...
