The Pocket Herc is a New Zealand-born singer-songwriter, beat maker & music producer, based in Sydney, Australia. He is an un-signed, independent recording artist, whose debut mixtape ‘2020 Hindsight’ will be released in early 2020.
All songs were entirely written, recorded &/or performed by Herc in his tree top home, during spare evenings & weekends, all while working full time as a designer/art director.
Coming into the new decade, Herc felt inspired to create a mixtape based upon the thoughts, feelings & experiences collected during his journey into adulthood. His style is genre-fluid & inspired by pop, hip hop, country, rock, electronic, grunge, indie, metal artists – heavily influenced by 80?s, 90?s and 00?s tracks, synths & beats.
Herc’s eclectic sound could be described as digital native-focused, melancholy, poetic, moody, lethargic, unvarnished, grunge, anti-pop that you can sometimes dance to.
