Biography

More than one Richard Harvey is noted as a musician. The first is a graduate of the London Royal College of Music, mutli-instrumentalist, founder of the band Gryphon, interpreter of Medieval and Renaissance music, and composer of soundtracks including Death of a President (2006), Luther (2002), Animal Farm (1999), and a collaboration with Hans Zimmer on the soundtrack to The Da Vinci Code.

This Richard Harvey is currently touring as a duo with John Williams, playing recorders, pan pipes, percussion, mandolin, psaltery, African thumb piano, ocarina and various Chinese instruments alongside the eminent guitarist in an unusual programme of world, classical and modern music.

Another is a current electronic artist, real name Dean Cole, the name Richard Harvey was given so there could be a name tacked onto the appearances on Hawtin’s Decks, EFX & 909, while Cole was trying to stay anonymous.

Yet another was the drummer of the band Divinyls.

Richard Harvey (1) was born in 1953, and studied a variety of instruments, mostly Medieval. After graduating, he joined Musica Reservata playing early music on period instruments including recorder, krumhorn, mandolin and keyboards. Along with fellow former student Brian Gulland he formed an acoustic band to play a mixture of early music and English folk music. This group became Gryphon.
