Lush, cinematic pop orchestrations combined with simple, heartfelt lyrics delivered by a passionate and honest voice are the core of Australian singer, songwriter and producer BROADHURST. With a diversity of sound ranging from stripped back emotive piano and haunting vocals to precision electronica and soaring synths, Nick Broadhurst has already drawn equally diverse stylistic comparisons to the smooth tones of Rhye, authenticity of Peter Allen, drama of Hans Zimmer and funk of Daft Punk.
“Little Lover” is the ideal debut single, touching on multiple senses with its combination of tenderness and sensuality and an unparalleled vocal falsetto shining through at all the right moments.
While BROADHURST is widely sought after and respected by other artists such as Flight Facilities for his unique melodic intuition and skill on the saxophone both in the studio and live, it wasn’t until recently when he turned his attention to composing on piano and exploring his vocal depth that he finally felt at home musically, allowing BROADHURST to be birthed into the world.
“‘Little Lover’ is really going to have a life. It’s amazing. Beautiful stuff.” ~ Anton Monsted, Senior Vice President of Music, 20th Century Fox, and the musical mastermind behind The Great Gatsby, Moulin Rouge and Romeo & Juliet soundtracks.
“BROADHURST delivers one of the best tracks of the year with debut single “Little Lover.” A dark, sweeping love song that vacillates between a sparse acoustic arrangement and airy synths, the widescreen anthem should wreak havoc on blogs in the weeks to come.” ~ Mike Wass, Idolator.com
