After a successful European tour supporting fellow Australian Ziggy Alberts, singer-songwriter Harrison Storm has just announced his biggest European & Australian headline tour in support of his new EP Falling Down (out July 26 via Nettwerk). For full dates, please visit here.
Over the past few years, Storm has developed a singular style, merging impressive classically-inspired fingerpicking and a soulful vocal delivery equally resonant of alternative, folk and even blues. The new EP feels like the culmination of his entire young career to date. Combining the warmth and sincerity of his first two EPs – Sense Of Home and Change It All – with the crowd-pleasing confidence and energy he has consistently displayed on the road.
“This EP is a collection of songs I’ve been working on over the past year. A mix of songs written here at home and on tour overseas. It was awesome to make these tracks come to life with producers, Edd Holloway and Nick Atkinson (Dean Lewis, Lewis Capaldi, Gabrielle Aplin) in the UK, as well as Hayden Calnin here in Australia. Really excited to get these out into the world,” says Harrison.
Storm has spent his life travelling to numerous parts of Australia in a wagon with his friends, spending time camping and surfing. His life epitomizes outdoor living and it comes through in his music. This is best visualized in the official video for “Change It All,” which has over 30 million streams on Spotify, on top of the 150 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.
