Halifax-based St. Lucian-born Harvey Millar plays a hip bopping, funky, jazzy guitar. He punctuates his urban/smooth jazz sound with scats and rhythmic licks guaranteed to take you on an electrifying tour of his unique style of musical expression. Millar’s love for Jazz was given birth following exposure to live jazz for the first time at the age of 15. Treated to the provocative and sensational music of the Luther Francois Trio, featuring Luther Francois on guitar, piano, and flute, Emerson Nurse on Drums, and Mervin Francois on bass, Millar became an instant fan of the guitar. To this day, owns the very guitar played by Luther Francois at that turning point in his life.
Since moving to Canada in 1982, Millar has stayed closely connected to the St. Lucian music scene, and periodically finds himself jamming with local musicians. Performance highlights for Harvey Millar include: The 1999 St. Lucia International Jazz Festival, The Du Maurier Atlantic Jazz Festival (1997-2002), The East Coast Music Awards (ECMA) Halifax and Newfoundland, the Music Industry Association of Nova Scotia (Urban Jazz Show Case), The Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival, the media launching of the St. Lucia Jazz Festival in Toronto, 2003, the Atlantic Scenes Festival in Ottawa; The St. Lucia International Jazz Festival in May, every year between 2004-2011; at the British Virgin Islands Music Festival May 2004 to much acclaim, and at the Atlantic Jazz Festival yearly, July 2006 – 2012.
Harvey Millar is an excellent composer and has written over 60 compositions. His debut CD released in 2001 has won him a total of 5 music award to date. Two of the awards are Canada’s East Coast Music Awards for Best Urban Recording and Best Jazz Artist/recording of the Year in 2002 and 2003 respectively. In November of 2002, Millar led other performers by winning three African Nova Scotian Music Association (ANSMA) Awards for Best Jazz Artist, Best New Artist, and Artist of the Year. Millar is currently working on his second CD.
