This singer and songwriter from Waikato was a Smokefree Rockquest 2013 category winner.
Harry Parsons is a singer/songwriter from Waikato and was the overall winner of the inaugural solo/duo category of the Smokefree Rockquest 2013. He's following in his father's foosteps as a professional musician — music has always been a large part of his life.
After cutting his teeth on punk/metal and entering the Smokefree Rockquest three times, he changed things up and went solo with a new sound. In 2013 he entered again but this time with a folk/alternative twist.
As a Smokefree RockQuest winner Harry received a $10,000 Making Tracks grant for You'll Be Fine.
