After launching the show at The Church Of Bang Bang Boogaloo in Melbourne earlier this year, Harry set off on the most successful tour to date for gig hosting platform Parlour Gigs. The tour went nationwide, showcasing a stripped back version of Struggle With Glory in backyards and loungerooms across the country.
Now Harry will upscale the show to the full 9-piece band and gospel choir to perform Struggle With Glory throughout the summer at music and arts festivals and major events throughout Australia.

The EP was recorded in Melbourne with ARIA award winning producer Steven Schram. It features 4 original gospel jazz tracks written by Harry, each about a different well-known Greek myth, where the unstoppable torrent of fate is served up with barrelhouse piano, thumping double bass, soaring gospel choir vocals and the unmistakeable sound of Harry James Angus’ old dented trumpet.
Of the unconventional body of work now known as Struggle With Glory, Harry says: “ There is a place and there is a home for songwriting which falls outside of fashion, for songwriting that is intelligent or whimsical and just about great songwriting. That’s really all I was thinking about when I wrote these songs. That and Minotaurs.”
Struggle With Glory I Saw Red EP is out today, available from your favourite digital retailers and streaming services.
