Harvey is the Midwest’s best kept secret, hailing from Wood River, Illinois, they play dark indie rock influenced by Hey Mercedes, Park, The Get Up Kids, The Beatles, Bob Dylan and Pink Floyd. Comprised of vocalist Nate Fleming, brother Jake Fleming on guitar, guitarist Michael Burk, Justin Butler on drums and rounded out by newly recruited bass player, Matt Beilsmith, originally a four piece, Harvey has been together for three years and have self released three EP’s. 2005’s self-titled debut, 2006’s Don’t Talk Just Listen and their newest, released on June 22, 2007, the "Worst Year Ever" EP. Which was recorded at Amp’t Studios with Seth Henderson (The Graduate, Asteria). Maturing at a rapid rate and showing no signs of slowing down, Harvey plans on releasing their most recent EP,"Earthworms," for a to-be-announced date in 2008.
Having developed a large live following in the St. Louis area, Harvey has played almost every major venue including "The Pageant", and has opened for Hawthorne Heights, Gym Class Heroes, The Fold and My American Heart. In addition to receiving airplay on the largest rock station in the area (105.7 The Point) and the most popular college station (WLCA 89.9) they have also received endorsements from Shine drums/percussion as well as clothing company, Applicant Apparel.
Harvey, by sticking to their guns and doing what they do best, have laid the groundwork for a massive commercial breakthrough. Their music speaks for itself, while still pop, it retains an edge and intensity driven by the melodious vocal hooks and dynamic chord and time changes.
