Despite his young age, it’s clear that Harrison is wise beyond his years, having channeled his unique upbringing as a homeschooled teenager with a learning disability into a musical prodigy whose highly original tunes contain true depth and soul, reflecting all the highs, lows, emotion, and energy of youth. Raised on the sounds of Motown, Bill Withers, Nina Simone, Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, and others, he spent the last couple of years crafting and perfecting his own James Blake-meets-The Weeknd style, recognizing the well of his unique youth as a touchstone for his music. “Everything I write is from personal experience,” says Brome “so it definitely helps if I’ve gone through some shit.”
In the coming weeks, stay tuned for more information regarding Brome.
