A passion for music, a sore throat, and a little bit of fate is what brought together Christina and Harry to create Christina & Harry Acoustic Duo.
Both originally from the South of England, Christina & Harry's friendship started back in 2014 after they, with their respective bands, entered Red Bull's national band competition to grab a slot on stage at Download Festival in Donnington. Having made it to the latter stages of the competition, they met whilst recording live sessions for Rock Sound magazine at Red Bull Studios in London.
After both Christina & Harry's band entered a local competition to play Download Festival, they initially met at the Red Bull Studios in London, and continued to bump into each other whilst on the road, playing various shows around the UK.
Following a few years on the road, it wasn't until bumping into each other in Nottingham town centre that they realised they were now living just up the road from each other.
After calling up Christina for some last-minute, emergency vocals for a wedding Harry was booked for, they realised that they could team up to put together something far more spicy-hot than the sum of their individual parts, and the duo was born.
After this initial performance, both Christina and Harry realised that they made such a great team together and could really focus on perfecting their own craft, making a much more seamless and enjoyable performance.
Harry, a University of Hull graduate, moved to Nottingham after completing his Bachelor of Music. Harry spent three years touring the UK and Europe with his band We Are Carnivores, writing, recording and self-producing three releases that gained critical acclaim across a range of established media such as the BBC, Kerrang! and Rock Sound magazine.
Harry continues to write and record his own work under the pseudonym Hector LeMans, whilst also performing solo gigs as an instrumentalist and providing session, mixing and mastering services for local musicians.
Harry is complimented endlessly on his exquisite and complex guitar work, and has been asked to perform at a variety of small venues, parties and weddings from admirers who have been lucky enough to be captivated by his playing whilst performing in the city centre of Nottingham.
After completing a Bachelor of Arts at Royal Holloway, University of London in Media Arts & Creative Sound Design, Christina decided to try and pursue her passion for music, and won a scholarship at the British Institute of Modern Music.
Christina has since worked with hundreds of artists all over the world, providing vocals for their tracks as a session artist. During her time at University, Christina continued to upload covers of her favourite tracks to her YouTube channel, and has now surpassed over 54,000 subscribers and over 5 million views.
Christina also works with brands providing video, music and editing services, creating advertisements which she shares with her online followers.
