While his next two albums, 1995’s Fight For Your Mind and 1997’s Will To Live also met positive reviews, Harper’s initial success was with the underground college rock scene and the European and Australian crowds–who gave Harper massive airplay on popular Triple J radio.

Harper finally broke through the sonic barrier with his commercially successful radio single “Steal My Kisses” in 2000 from his 1999 album, Burn to Shine.

His newfound popularity saw him headlining two world tours, opening for[lastfm link_type="artist_info"] Dave Matthews Band [/lastfm] in the summer of 2000, and “discovering” now popular surfer-turned-songwriter,[lastfm link_type="artist_info"] Jack Johnson[/lastfm].
