The singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer is excited to finally release music in the U.S. after finding massive success in his homeland of Australia. His stateside debut sits comfortably between the turn-of-the-century production wizardry of The Neptunes and Timbaland and the primal Monterey Pop Festival fret-burning of ’67 Hendrix.
The album title “Is a play on that old saying, ‘Where there’s smoke, there’s fire,'” Harts admits. “I added a positive second line, Where there’s hope, there’s desire.’ That phrase really sparked the whole context, which means hope and desire are a direct response to smoke and fire. There’s a lot of sadness and trouble in our world, but there’s still a lot of love being born.”
