hmv's Next Big Thing... #10 Fraser A. Gorman

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you singer-songwriter Fraser A. Gorman and his tender tunes...

 

Who Is He?

He's 23 years old, he hails from Melbourne, Australia and he's from the same scene that has already given us the fabulous Courtney Barnett. Gigging since he was just 15, he's built up a solid fanbase and is now readying for a full assault. 

 

Who Does He Sound Like?

He's a bluesy, rootsy singer-songwriter, not too far away from someone like Tobias Jesso Jr. If you want to go further back, you can hear plenty of Jeff Buckley and Nick Drake in there, with dashes of the wit and wisdom of Neutral Milk Hotel also thrown in. 

 

Why Should I Be Excited?

His voice is excellent, his lyrics are affecting and witty and his live reputation is excellent. 

 

Can I Hear Something?

You most certainly can, his new single 'Broken Hands' is below for you. You can check out his early singles in our digital store here.
