GLASSNOTE ENTERTAINMENT GROUP has signed AUSTRIAN singer/songwriter JAMES HERSEY, who is about to release his first studio-produced body of work with the label.
Commented HERSEY on signing to DANIEL GLASS' celebrated indie label: “They are the bridge between what we like and what we'll love. I couldn't be more proud to find my name on any other roster."
HERSEY has recently collaborated with internationally renowned artists like KYGO, DILLON FRANCIS and FILOUS on tracks like "Coming Over" and "How Hard I Try," which each have millions of streams on SPOTIFY and SOUNDCLOUD, among others.
“JAMES HERSEY is a multi-talented musician with an extremely dynamic artistic background,” remarked label founder and President GLASS, “We couldn’t be more excited to have him join the GLASSNOTE family.”
Born in VIENNA, JAMES learned to play the cello, drums and electric guitar as a youngster. He later studied jazz at a private conservatory where he discovered his talent for songwriting and producing. At the age of 17, he independently released his first self-titled EP, which garnered its first radio plays in AUSTRAIA. He then traveled across EUROPE and the U.S. writing songs and playing live to enrich his sound.
When he returned to VIENNA in 2012, JAMES produced and released his mixtape “Twelve,” his first foray into electronic production with lyrical and melodic sensibility rooted in a singer-songwriter background. He soon after was invited to join MILKY CHANCE’s self-made label-family LICHTDICHT RECORDS, and in MARCH, supported him on tour in the U.S. He is currently working on his first studio-produced EP for GLASSNOTE.
