Australian singer-songwriter Harrison Storm unveils ‘Breathe Again’, the latest single to be lifted from his upcoming EP due for release later in the year via Nettwerk Records.
‘Breathe Again’ was written and recorded in the UK with the help of producers Nick Atkinson and Edd Holloway – the duo has a name for developing new artists – they produced and co-wrote Lewis Capaldi’s Top 10 hit ‘Grace’, as well as other album tracks and singles.
“Last year was a bit of a challenging one for me in my personal life”, says Storm about ‘Breathe Again’, “I’d come out the other side of a break up with a few metaphorical bruises but found myself in a position where I felt a sense of clarity. This song came about in response to a very revealing poem I’d received around it all that was a bit of a shock to the system, but something I definitely needed and highlighted a lot of truths to me”.
Over the past few years, Harrison Storm has crafted a singular style, merging classically-inspired fingerpicking and sophisticated lyrics with a rich and soulful vocal delivery that is both intimate and explosive.
A born troubadour, Harrison traded college for busking in Melbourne. The fruits of his impromptu performances financed the 2015 debut EP, ‘Sense of Home’. The latter yielded a worldwide hit as ‘Sense of Home generated upwards of 65 million Spotify streams and counting. Signed to Nettwerk, he unveiled the ‘Change It All’ EP two years later and notched another hit in the form of the title track, which racked up over 35 million Spotify streams. Along the way, he occupied real estate on coveted playlists such as ‘Your Favorite Coffeehouse’, ‘Relax & Unwind’, ‘The Stress Buster’, and more as the total stream tally exceeded 150 million and counting.
Storm has performed to packed crowds across Australia, UK, EU, US and Canada, developing a powerful presence on stage alongside the likes of Snow Patrol, Tash Sultana, Gregory Alan Isakov, Michael Franti, Husky, The Cat Empire, The Paper Kites, The Head and the Heart, and more. Simultaneously, he impacted the influential Triple J, received airtime on BBC Radio 2, US tastemaker station KCRW and was featured in Nashville music songwriting bible American Songwriter magazine.
With ‘Breathe Again’ Harrison Storm has crafted a folk-infused haunting indie-pop anthem, one that is both filled with urgency and exhilarating calm.
