Ever since he first exploded onto the scene in 2015 with his debut EP Sense Of Home, Storm has been compared to a range of beloved artists, from Ben Howard to City And Colour. But, though suitably lofty, those comparisons don’t quite capture what makes Storm special. In truth, the musician is that all too rare kind of artist: one who sounds like nobody but himself, who takes his influences and his unique worldview and mixes them up into beautiful, acoustic-led ballads of redemption and grace that could only have been written by him.
A born troubadour, Harrison traded college for busking in Melbourne. The fruits of his impromptu performances financed that 2015 debut EP. The title track Sense Of Home became a worldwide hit and generated upwards of 60 million Spotify streams and earned the attention of Nettwerk C.E.O. and co-founder Terry McBride, who reached out to him via Facebook.
