Today we’d like to introduce you to Harley Huke.
Harley, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Life is hard, and clinging to your dreams when you’re the only one who believes in them I’d say is even harder, I’ve never had anyone believe in me, not my friends, my peers, my family, it’s always just been me. I was bullied ridiculed and harassed for having dreams that differed from the common. I grew up in Northern New Hampshire, and it’s the type of community where nearly all of my graduating class still lives in the same town as our high school. – I moved the day we graduated and never once regretted it.
I did it anyway, I followed my dreams, listened to myself, moved to LA and made music.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It’s hard to put into words, but since moving away from home I’ve had to say goodbye to both my mother and my younger brother. I started releasing music after the loss of my brother, and I’d say that his loss was one of the hardest things that I’ve ever experienced. Until my mother, which was so much harder than I can even express.
We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I make dark pop music, it’s focused on hard life situations, mental health, and life. It’s a project that I truly hope I am able to inspire people with, and that they can feel like they are able to do it even when someone says no.
Are there any apps, books, podcasts or other resources that you’ve benefited from using?
I love history, so realistically anything relating to history, I’m always ready to read! With that being said, I love the podcast Lore right now.
