Harcourt by name, and hardcore about music by nature


Nic Harcourt was born and raised in Birmingham, England but nowadays he is cited as one of the most influential DJs in America, as musical director, and host of flagship show, Morning Becomes Eclectic on radio station, KCRW.

Broadcasting from the campus of Santa Monica College, KCRW has become known as a "tastemaker for the world" in terms of music, not only giving 'up and coming' and unsigned artists their first exposure in the States, but also more often than not, raising the profile, sales and success rate of any band or artist it features. One of the station"s trademarks is its frequent in-studio sessions, which often feature artists that have never before recorded sessions for radio stations in the States.

Harcourt has claimed, albeit tongue-in-cheek, to have a lot of clout within the music industry and has suggested that many music executives listen to his show 'Morning Becomes Eclectic' while stuck in morning traffic jams on California"s notoriously busy freeways. The truth is, Harcourt is influential and does possess a good head for a tune. His track record speaks for itself.

It happened again when he played a demo by Jem.

A weekly version of the show, titled Sounds Eclectic, is syndicated to a number of other stations in the country, making Harcourt a nationwide celebrity. He also appears regularly on BBC Radio 1"s Zane Lowe show, discussing the success rate (or lack thereof) of British bands in America, as well as reporting on new bands from the States headed Britain"s way. Harcourt"s reputation as a musical visionary has also earned him work in Hollywood as musical consultant/supervisor on such movies as "The Dukes of Hazzard" and "Igby Goes Down".

KCRW often promotes and sponsors live events throughout the Santa Monica area, supporting both obscure and popular acts. Forthcoming shows of note include Regina Spektor, Shelby Lynne, Yo La Tengo and Rogue Wave. Those looking to attend these shows can find a variety of
