Musical phenomenon Darren Hart, aka Harts, has already had a huge year in 2016. Having released two massive singles in “Peculiar” and “Power,” he’s been touring non-stop both locally and internationally, including a barnstorming UK and European tour and a triumphant return to the hallowed Splendour In The Grass stage, playing a spectacular set backed by a horn section and driving fans wild with his captivating on stage showmanship. All that hype and build up has served as the perfect intro to Harts’ latest album, ‘Smoke Fire Hope Desire’ – set for release via Dew Process/UMA. Recorded in Hart’s home studio in Melbourne, the LP is the culmination of the often labeled “one-man music-making machine,” (he writes everything, plays all the instruments, records and produces all his music single handedly) spending the past few years developing his sound, both on the road and in the studio. The record is the sound of an artist who has locked his own identity and his voice into his sights and looks poised for global stardom.
