Harry Pane releases new EP ‘The Wild Winds’ – out today
After selling out London’s The Bedford last week, singer/songwriter Harry Pane has released his brand new EP The Wild Winds today, which was funded by Island Records following his victory at Meet & Jam and PRS for Music’s “Road To The 100 Club” competition last year.
Recorded with Dani Castelar (Paolo Nutini, REM, Snow Patrol) in Valencia, the EP is compiled of five original tracks that take the listener through an emotional journey of grief and finally acceptance. They comprise a love story with a difference and showcase Harry’s remarkable and diverse song-writing capabilities, infusing a mix of musical styles.
It opens with the acoustic lead single ‘Fletcher Bay’ which following its release was added to numerous playlists on Spotify and has been championed at radio by BBC Introducing London, Northampton and Oxford, and showing how Harry’s appeal crosses musical boundaries.
‘Old Friend’ and ‘Into The Dark’ add an indie rock edge to the EP incorporating drums and electric guitar with Harry’s distinctive vocals, while ‘Real Souls’ leads with a toe-tapping folk style rhythm. The charming, atmospheric tones of the title-track ‘The Wild Winds’ closes what is a compelling, honest and beautifully crafted record from start to finish.
Harry is also making his mark on the live scene, gigging relentlessly throughout 2016. Already this year he has played a string of shows across the country including his first UK headline tour which saw him sell out the London show at The Bedford last week.
Harry has been chosen as BBC Introducing London’s featured artist tomorrow and will be playing BBC Oxford’s Uprising Showcase at the 02 Academy Oxford on May 19th. He has also announced a show at the Notting Hill Arts Club, London on May 7th alongside Martha Gunn as part of their Communion Music Club Night.
