Blue Sky Thinking
The Field Of The Cloth Of Gold
Accomplished guitarist, songwriter and acclaimed British acoustic performer Nick Harper got his professional start on the mid-'80s album Whatever Happened to Jugula (aka Jugula), a collaboration of his father, Roy Harper, and Jimmy Page.
From that time on, Nick toured and recorded regularly with his dad. His own debut as a leader came in 1994 with the EP Light at the End of the Kennel. His first full-length, Seed, followed a year later. Singer, composer, and former Squeeze frontman Glenn Tilbrook heard Harper perform and was impressed enough to sign him to the new label Quixotic Records. After touring around the U.K., North America, and Japan, Harper recorded the first of his albums for Quixotic; the 1998 release, Smithereens, was followed by another tour. His third album (and second with Tilbrook as producer), Harperspace, came out in 2000. He continued to record and release albums frequently during the new millennium, even while spending much time on charity work and fundraisers. ~ Joslyn Layne, Rovi
