Singer songwriter Harry Hookey will perform a free gig in-store at Basement Discs in Melbourne this Friday (August 1, 2014).

Hookey will play his lunchtime set at Basement Discs in Block Place Melbourne at 12:34pm Friday.

Hookey cites Bob Dylan was one of his earliest influences and lists Steve Earle, Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen in his people to love.

Hookey and his brothers started out performing as the Hookey Family Band after his father bought instruments for the four boys.

Harry’s first non-family band was The Bystanders. The band featured seven law students, including Harry, from the University of Melbourne.

After winning the Telstra Road To Discovery in 2012, Harry released his debut EP ‘Old Noise’ with producer Matt Fell.

Hookey’s major label debut ‘Misdiagnosed’ on Warner was one of the surprise releases of 2014. ‘Misdiagnosed’ was produced by Nash Chambers. Hookey debuted the album at the Deni Blues & Roots Festival in Deniliquin.

Since the album’s release in April Hookey has been one of the hardest working guys in showbiz.
