In Australia, he might be just Harry, a university student from Ipswich, west of Brisbane. But China is in the grip of Hazza mania, thanks to a music clip posted online.
"He's living a double life - he's a rock star but he's my son here in Aussie - just a dag like the rest of us," his mum said.
But he's a dag whose videos have had over ten million hits in China - and growing fast.More stories from Today Tonight
"My family didn't even know I was doing what I was doing until one of my videos was on TV in China, and then I showed them the clip," Harry said.
It's lead to a recording contract and his own TV show.
"I do all these things and then I go home and I watch them on TV or on the computer and I just think, 'was that me'," Harry said.
It all started when Harry was singing Chinese pop songs at a karaoke bar in Sunnybank in Brisbane's Asian hub. He was studying Mandarin at university at the time.
"I thought Chinese classes were boring, just because I'm not good at studying. I went to karaoke with my friends one day and I sang a song and they were like 'you should do Chinese Idol or something like that'," Harry recalled.
Instead he bought a microphone and made his own videos, uploading them to Youku, the Chinese version of YouTube. From there, his star began to rise.
"One of my videos that I put up got over a million hits in a week," Harry said.
Before he knew it, he was invited to appear on a chat show. Now he hosts the show and lives in Guangzhou, only occasionally does he get home to the family farm.
Harry's also just released his first original song, ‘Let Go’, which is now available on iTunes.
