Hello everyone, thanks for visiting my site. I’m very excited to announce the release of a new song… ‘Breathing Underwater’, which is hitting all the online platforms on 15th July. Dare I say it, this is my favourite song I’ve ever produced.
The guts of it was written on my first real day of lockdown in March 2020; that first day that I sat down with an empty diary stretching out in front of me. It really captures that feeling for me, and some of the things I realised about myself in that period of time.
I’ve got some exciting stuff to share with you around release day… but for now, I’m sharing the artwork below. It’s a photograph of an encaustic artwork inspired by the song, by Lynn Bateman. In the meantime, you can use the links below to listen to my music on Spotify, or buy a copy of my latest record ‘A Ghost Inside’.
Catch you all soon!
Henry Bateman's songwriting has a maturity and nuance that suggests a seasoned pro with a life filled with experiences to draw on so it always comes as a shock that he is as young as he is. His music is always thoughtful and considered and he creates completely unique and emotional sonic landscapes with his beautifully crafted narratives and sound worlds. His craftsmanship and his attention to detail is clear in every musical decision he makes and the effort and work he puts in is an inspiration to all of us.
Hide & Seek is an album that in some ways redefines what folk music can be. While working within the genre, he manages to find new and unique ways to express himself....Bateman is perhaps the greatest undiscovered talent today.
