Bio

Henry Fraser launched his first solo EP, 'Quickly', at Sydney's iconic Basement in March 2012. Henry loves to play with different genres and sounds, but 'Quickly', takes a distinctly folk bent. It is a cosy cabin in the wilderness, pantry laden with vocal harmonies, fire blazing against the bleakness. Henry's eclectic musical upbringing includes a mix of self-taught instruments and classical choral training, and he reflects this blend of simplicity and sophistication in his songwriting. An arresting, intense performer, Henry's regular appearances in Sydney and its surrounds have gathered him a loyal and growing fanbase.

You're trea...

You're treading a well-worn path, which makes it hard to do something different with the sound. Having said that, there's potential here and some really nice embellishments. Keep it up.
