There’s something undeniably captivating about the music of Harry Cleverdon. With just a few years experience under his belt, the young NSW-based singer-songwriter has developed a sound that feels equal parts grounded and explorative—it’s rooted in folk, but reaches into far wider territories.
With the release of his new EP From My Side Of The Stage, Cleverdon has immediately established his penchant for crafting immersive and earth sonic gems. Here’s a hot tip from the Happy Mag team: keep an eye on this name, we’re expecting big things.
On his new EP From My Side Of The Stage, NSW-based singer-songwriter Harry Cleverdon crafts an endearing slice of soft-rock magic.
Throughout the new EP, Harry Cleverdon weaves together elements of folk, pop, and soft-rock to deliver something uniquely his own. With warm and textured instrumental arrangements and endearing vocal melodies, From My Side Of The Stage is brimming with pure musical charm.
Across the EP’s six-track duration, Cleverdon explores myriad sonic directions—he never sits in one place for too long. This, however, is likely the release’s most incredible quality. Time To Time is a raw, stripped-back slice of soft-rock, while Go For Broke is a subtly moving piano ballad.
Sitting at the centre of the EP is a live recording of Down To The Wire, showcasing his undeniable musical talent – a talent that can’t be feigned through recording tricks. By the time the EP’s closing track Without You (feat. Shy) reaches its final moments, we guarantee you’ll have been roped in completely by Cleverdon’s uniquely personal sounds.
These may still be relatively early days for this artist, but judging by the quality of everything we’ve heard so far, I think we can safely expect plenty more great tunes courtesy of Harry Cleverdon.
