Harvest formed in Rotorua in early 2004. The band began gigging in December that year and by 2005 had placed third in the Rotorua Rockquest finals. In 2006 Hugh White took over vocal duties and Harvest began to take their music in a more Hard Rock direction. In 2007 Harvest won the Rotorua Rockquest regional final and went on to place in the top 12 bands nationwide. Harvest are currently recording an EP called Evolution.
