One year on from the release of ‘A Church on New Year’s Day’, Joseph Baker and his group The Sticks, are still desperate for people to help track down Harry.
Mr Baker, a 34-year-old singer and musician, who wrote the song after a memorable encounter with the elderly man on a cold December night in 2013, is keen to say thank you to the man who gave him the heartbreaking record.
Harry is around 70 years old, with a grey beard, a small scar above his left eye, and has the name Evie tattooed across his fingers.
For the past year all proceeds from the track have been donated to homeless charity Crisis in the hope of finding Harry.
The folk ballad in vein of ‘Fairytale of New York’ tells the heartbreaking story of Harry’s life on the streets, battle with alcohol and coping with being alone after his high school sweetheart left him.
It comes after Mr Baker who was on his way home from a Christmas party spotted a man sitting on the pavement and stopped to talk to him .
Mr Baker said: “We have still had absolutely no joy tracking Harry down so there’s not a huge amount to update.
“But we are still trying to find him and all proceeds of the song are still going to the homeless charity Crisis.”
