We are extremely pleased to be premiering Chris Short’s powerfully emotive new single, Higher, which is due for official release tomorrow (27th November) via Beardfire Music. Instantly reminiscent of the likes of Foy Vance or James Vincent McMorrow, Chris combines both folk and pop sensibilities on Higher in order to create a truly poignant sound that is bound to pull at the heartstrings, so prepare yourselves.
Talking about the single, Chris elaborates, “Higher was formed from my reflection back of the first few months of my relationship with my then neighbour, now wife of 10 years, Dawn. As a songwriter I’ve started writing songs about my experience and the lessons I have learned in the hope that when people hear my music they too can experience the emotion contained in the songs.”
Higher is the first single to be taken from Chris’ forthcoming EP, Somewhere, due for release in May 2021.
