Bio

HARGO brings haunting melodies anchored by a driving beat, distorted guitars, and a wide vocal range evocatively accentuating the thought-provoking lyrics. HARGO is a unique blend of personalities and cultures drawn from a diverse range of musical styles and influences, displaying music that is much more than just melody and lyrics.

Fronted by Hargobind Hari Khalsa, who since an early age has been redefining the face of the 21st century American songwriter. Khalsa’s song, "Crying For John Lennon," which Phil Spector praised as "something John would have written", was included in the 2009 documentary Strawberry Fields and was produced by Phil Spector and marked Spector's last production.

The full band was formed in 2010 and in February 2012 they released their debut album Out of Mankind While touring extensively in 2011 and 2012, Out of Mankind was receiving accolades in the the press and by indie taste makers. HARGO’s most recent success includes winning Ford Motors/Don Was contest Gimme the Gig II. HARGO was chosen out of 3000 bands to perform in front of Don Was, and were eventually chose by Was as winners of the competition. HARGO went on to record “Regeneration X” with Don Was in May of 2012. Shortly after Gimme The Gig, the band returned to the studio to record six new songs for an upcoming release.
