Seven Network in Australia have been using Friday on a TV commercial for the past few weeks. I’ve had a few people write in and mention this. Just wondering who else might have caught it? If any of you have seen it let me know.
The iTunes single of the week for Wonder was one of the most downloaded songs - over 15,000 people downloaded it in a week! Very happy to have so many new faces on myspace from this experience and I appreciate all the kind words and comments!
This month’s issue of InStyle Magazine for Australia (June issue) features a chat with me on all things music and I get a chance to introduce myself and my new album to the readers. Nice of them, don’t you think Thanks InStyle!
I’ll be doing an INSTORE PERFORMANCE at the Sydney Apple Store (367 George St.) on June 20th at 4pm. Would love to have all of you come out, so mark your calendars now!
In August I’ll be starting a residency at a new venue called NOTES. It's in Newtown. http://noteslive.net.au/ . I'll be playing every Tuesday, hope you can make it and bring your friends for a fun night out!
So.................The countdown has finally begun for the release of my album - soooooo excited for it's release! JULY 3rd, is the day.....I’ll be drinking a lot of champagne, you can count on it!
Here’s a glimpse of the album cover which was created using a Cybelle Malinowski shot by graphic designers at Sydney company Mathematics.

OK - I think you're all up to date....if i've missed anything i'll let you know :)
Hope you're all fantastic & happy FRIDAY!!!!
“I tried to create something timeless-something my future grandchildren will be proud of.” Born in London, the now-Sydney-based songstress has certainly achieved that goal with this collection of poetic pop songs. Harland’s greatest strength—aside from her stunning voice—lies in her haunting-yet-hopeful lyrics, best illustrated in the song “Wonder” and the cryptic title track, “Red Leaf”. – InStyle Magazine
