Everywhere you look these days in the broad, ever-growing landscape of music, there are collaborations.

“I have a very unique way of playing, and I’ve found that’s what makes my sound unique. I learnt early on that if I can do everything myself, maybe I should. I’m a control freak in a way, because I’ve found a way that works for me, and I’m not willing to give that up yet.”
I interviewed Harts for Beat Magazine. You can read the rest of the article, including his thoughts on his friendship with the late Prince and winning GQ Breakthrough Artist of the Year here.
