Australia’s Harrison Storm Shares “Run”
February 22, 2019 BY Nettwerk
Australian singer-songwriter Harrison Storm has developed a singular style, merging impressive classically-inspired fingerpicking and a soulful, hypnotic vocal delivery equally resonant of Alternative, Folk and Blues. Out today, Storm shares his latest single “Run.”
“‘Run’ is a song I began writing at my home last summer in Australia and ended up finishing on the other side of the world, in a special studio/barn while I was in the English countryside last year. For me the song is about resilience and stepping into the unknown with someone close by your side,” says Storm.
Storm has spent his life traveling to numerous parts of Australia in a wagon with his friends, spending time camping and surfing. His life epitomizes outdoor living and this comes through in his music. This is best visualized in the official video for his previous single “Change It All,” which has over 26.6 million streams on Spotify, on top of the 105 million combined streams on Spotify.

About Harrison Storm:
Harrison Storm personifies that eloquent edict of carpe diem. Under the cover of sand and waves, the fabled Australian beach life defined Storm’s formative years. This upbringing by the sea, translated into a love of adventure that he still carries with him today, finding chances to take on new challenges. Diligently chasing his musical dream with a sense of urgency, he organized and launched a popular “acoustic night” in his quaint beachside hometown of Mornington, Victoria at the age of 20. Two years later, he dropped out of university to solely devote his days to busking for tourists in Melbourne, eventually making enough to finance his 2015 debut EP Sense of Home, produced by friend Hayden Calnin. Its title track would place prominently on key streaming playlists, amassing an impressive 46 million+ combined streams and catching the attention of Nettwerk co-founder Terry McBride, who personally signed Storm after sending him a message on Facebook. In the past, Storm has performed to packed crowds across Australia, developing a powerful presence on stage alongside the likes of Ziggy Alberts, SYML, Snow Patrol, Tash Sultana, Michael Franti, The Cat Empire, Husky, The Head and the Heart, and more. Simultaneously, he impacted the influential Triple J and received airtime on US tastemaker station KCRW.
