Biography

Devon, UK ( 2009 – present)

Cosmo Jarvis is the stage name of Harrison Cosmo Krikoryan Jarvis an English singer-songwriter and filmmaker. Cosmo was born in New Jersey in 1989 before moving to Devon, UK as a young child. Jarvis is a multi-instrumentalist and reflects this in his songs, using instruments including the ukulele and the recorder. His music varies greatly in style over an album and is difficult to categorize. The lyrical content of his songs tackles a wide range of issues from homosexuality to alienation from religion.

His self titled debut was released in 2009 after dropping out of school at the age of 16. The album featured 21 tracks, with single She’s Got You receiving airplay on BBC Radio 1. Since then he has released two further albums, sophomore effort ‘Is the World Strange or Am I Strange?’ and ‘Think Bigger’ in 2011 and 2012 respectively. His most recent release at time of writing has been the 4 track E.P They Don’t Build Hearts Like They Used To which came out at the end of 2013.

When playing live, he has a variable band, however it is usually a three piece band with Cosmo playing guitar, Harry Mackaill on bass guitar and Harry Meads and/or Cosmo’s brother Fletcher Jarvis on drums and percussion.

Cosmo has written songs for other artists, such as ‘Waiting on the Hill’ for Mad Dog Mcrea and also writes and produces short films, with his work being shown at the SXSW film festival and ‘The Naughty Room’ being shown on British television.
