Premiere: Nathan Harrington Touches On The Hardships Of Relationships In Groovy Pop Rock Tune “Sleeping On Your Side”

by

Following the release of his chill single “Hold On Me,” emerging reggae pop rock artist Nathan Harrington returns with upbeat and captivating track, “Sleeping On Your Side.” Written by Harrington and produced by Jim Kaufman, “Sleeping on Your Side” tells the story of a toxic relationship where one often makes excuses for their partner without realizing the negative impact it is having on their own wellbeing. Despite the hardships that relationships and breakups come with, Harrington is able to let go of the past and learn how to move on with a sense of new understanding. The video, directed by Cory Ingram, follows Harrington through a struggling relationship before finally walking away and is available to watch here. 

“This has been a song concept in my head for years. And finally everything connected and the song was finished. We’ve all had those toxic relationships where you make excuses for your other, not realizing the drain and fatigue it puts on your mind, body and spirit until it’s too late. ‘SOYS’ is a song that takes you through one of these relationships, the highs and lows of a break up. But ends with clarity being restored. It’s never easy going through a breakup, especially when there was so much love. But you can’t hang on to a feeling that has faded.” – Nathan Harrington

With a sound that is uniquely his own, Nathan Harrington combines elements of Roots and Reggae to bring a bold and captivating sound to life. Deeply influenced by artists like Black Uruhu, Steel Pulse, Bob Marley, and Toots & the Maytals, his musical inspiration helps to hone his tone while contemporary influences like Rebelution and Slightly Stoopid point him towards the next generation of CaliRoots artists. “The music I make is meant to heal people. Reggae holds a high vibration, and I believe it can pull people away from the darkness,” shares Harrington.

 

Creating a new wave of sound, when it comes to songwriting, living is Nathan’s biggest intrigue. Whether it’s exploring nature on a hike, surfing the sea, or channeling meditation, it’s what truly inspires home to open and his eyes and see, and his ears to hear. Aside from singing, Nathan plays instruments such as guitar, bass, piano, ukulele, and percussion. He’s shared the bill with artists such as Jacob Collier, 2 Chains, Shawn Mendes, Sabrina Carpenter and Jed’s A Millionaire to name a few. Nathan has also been in numerous modeling campaigns and was cast in Jordan Peele’s movie “US”.

Stormy Strong – Fragile (Official Music Video)

by

Santa Cruz, CA, June 5, 2020 – Veteran Punk Rock artist Stormy Strong is at it again with a slew of catchy punk-pop, sea-worthy songs ready for mass consumption.  The former frontman and songwriter of Santa Cruz based punk rock band Reliance has been hard at work writing and recording some of his most inspired works to date, and will release the newest “Fragile”.  “Fragile” is an homage to his recent near death experience and an unexpected tribute to his wife Surreyya Hada’s loss of her father on Valentine’s Day this year. Surreyya is featured on this track.

A favorite local artist of Santa Cruz, Stormy’s latest releases embrace more recent challenges, and most recently, the lockdown condition due to the Covid-19 novel coronavirus.  “No one could have imagined the changes we are all experiencing together.” Strong states with regard to the collective human experience of solitude, fear and loneliness.  “We are never sure when we might be riding the thin line between life and death, as I did not long ago, or when someone we love may suddenly no longer be there.  Fragile explores the heart, its strength and weaknesses, it’s compassion, it’s hurt, and the dynamic but often complex relationships we have with one another.”

The son of a commercial fisherman, and a UCSC graduate, Stormy is truly a son of Surf City. Inspired by his many trips hundreds of miles off shore with his father, Stormy’s music has a hooky yet raw realness, culminating from his real life experiences at sea.  His latest release anyone can relate to and apply to their own narrative. “It’s been a difficult year for us”, states Surreyya Hada. “Common ground, relationships, music and the arts will be a necessary place for us all to collect and heal in coming months.  Our family uses the arts to heal.”
