Harry Oakwood (Millionaire) – Scared Crow by Believe Digital UK
The Millionaire, Harry Oakwood, had a dream. He would build a band. A band of brothers who would serve him and act under his name. Harry Oakwood (Millionaire) are that band.
Having just recorded their first E.P, the boys recently performed at LSO St Luke’s with one of Britain’s hottest new orchestras, The Aurora Orchestra, a show that was broadcast live on Radio 3. Requests are coming in from a host of radio shows, BBC Radio Merseyside legend Billy Butler and BBC London/Amazing Radios Gary Crowley to name but two DJ’s who have jumped on board the Good Ship Oakwood.
Not much is known about Harry. When probed on the subject the band reply in unison, “We are not at liberty to say”. “Just wait till you see his dog though!” adds the one holding a drumstick in his hand. They are more forthcoming about their influences though, citing The Band (first & foremost) along with Patrick Watson, Lowell George and Elliot Smith as inspiration.
What we do know is that Harry had a brief. All sing, check. All write, check. Great songs, check. Soaring harmonies, check. Barnstorming live shows, check. The criteria have been met. The voyage has begun…
Harry Oakwood (Millionaire) is: Andy Harwood- Guitar, Harmonica & Vocals, Sam Swallow- Piano & Vocals, James Hayto- Guitar & Vocals, Graham Knight- Bass & Vocals and Chopper- Drums & Vocals.
