A Debut Single Which Shows Signs Of A Bright Future
He’s performed at IOW before even releasing his debut single
Hailing from Portsmouth, Harvey Jay Dodgson is already making waves to create a bright future for himself. As if being playlisted by BT Sport isn’t enough, Harvey also got to perform at this years Isle of Wight Festival, thanks to This Feeling.
Today, Harvey has released his debut single. Titled ‘Caroline’, Harvey is wearing his influences on his sleeve straight from the off, and it’s clear he has the ability to take his music and create an incredible career for himself. With hints of The Black Keys and Sam Fender, there’s also Harvey’s own attitude and persona laid out within this debut single. There’s a raw energy to it, the type that you can only put in a track if you have the energy within yourself, it’s not something you can be influenced to put in.
Harvey has also announced a London show to mark the debut release and showcase the new material live. Booked for the inaugural Undercurrent night at The Waiting Room in Stoke Newington on 20th October he’ll be joining fellow South Coast band on the rise, FLOWVERS.
Finding himself in good company for a hometown support slot, Harvey has also been announced to support The Snuts whilst touring their Number 1 debut album at the Wedgewood Room on 16th November.

About Harvey Jay Dodgson
Harvey Jay Dodgson started playing the guitar at the age of 7 and by 9 years of age had written his first piece of music. His early inspiration came after being introduced by older brother Neil to the music of Peggy Lee, Billie Holiday & the free-flowing vocal melodies of Ella Fitzgerald and Ray Charles. He says ‘It instantly opened my eyes (or should I say ‘ears’) to a completely different sound of music, It was discovering the jazz-influenced artists, King Krule & Cosmo Pyke who inspired him to experiment further and he was soon ready to create his own music.
Tipped by BT TV and Scotts Menswear as ‘One to Watch 2021’ He has recently performed at the IOW Festival. He will be releasing his debut fully produced EP in 2022.
