Harmony Grass was a British pop group active briefly in the late 1960s.

Cover of This Is Us (RCA Victor: SF 8034), 1969

The group was formed in Essex by previous members of Tony Rivers & the Castaways, including Rivers himself. They signed to RCA Records about a year after they formed, and their single "Move in a Little Closer" hit #24 on the UK Singles Chart in January 1969.[1] They released one album, This Is Us, in 1969, on the RCA label, and performed in the UK, including at London's Marquee Club, but had broken up by 1970.[2]

Bandmembers Tony Ferguson (guitar) and Kenny Rowe (bass) both joined Capability Brown in 1973. Rivers (lead vocals) later appeared on albums by Brian Bennett (of The Shadows), Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel, and Roger Daltrey[2] and Tom Marshall then worked with Episode Six, Sparrow, Liquid Gold, Bucks Fizz and Elaine Paige.
