A native of the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, and raised in a musical household, Storm spent his formative years soaking in the seaside splendor of his hometown and immersing himself in the sounds of The Beatles and Neil Young. As his own musical ambitions grew, so did his influences, with artist like City and Colour, Jeff Buckley, Angus & Julia Stone, and author Jack London entering the picture.
After leaving university to focus on music, Storm began busking in the streets of Melbourne, eventually earning enough to finance his debut EP, 2015’s Sense Of Home, produced by friend Hayden Calnin. Its title track would place prominently on key Spotify playlists, amassing an impressive 10 million+ streams and catching the attention of Nettwerk C.E.O. and co-founder Terry McBride, who personally signed Storm after sending him a Facebook message.
Sense of Home’s success also saw him perform to packed crowds across Melbourne, developing a powerful presence on stage alongside the likes of Michael Franti, The Cat Empire, Husky, and more. Simultaneously receiving Australian radio play and airtime on US tastemaker KCRW.
Storm officially arrives on the global scene with his Nettwerk debut single “Change It All.” Over minimal production, his delicate acoustic plucking immediately captivates and is accentuated with a robust and dynamic vocal delivery. “This is quite a personal one for me,” says Harrison. “I’m really excited to see how it’s received.”
