Australian duo Seaforth has been confirmed to support Chris Young on all dates of his UK tour this summer. Following their first official trip, where they played highly acclaimed sets at C2C: Country to Country in London, Glasgow and Dublin earlier this year, the duo will be making their way back across the pond in just a few months – tickets for all shows can be found here.
It was also announced last week in an exclusive on BBC Radio 2, that Seaforth have been added to The Long Road Festival lineup, performing on the main stage and at the Afterparty on Saturday, 27th August. Check out the session they recorded on The Country Show with Bob Harris along with the announcement here.
Seaforth kicked off 2022 with the release of their latest single “Good Beer” with former tour mate Jordan Davis, showcasing the duo’s signature good vibes and cheeky humour. Listen to the track here and watch the accompanying music video here.
“We haven’t put music out in a minute, but we got tired of shedding tears and wanted to come into 2022 swingin’,” joked Tom Jordan and Mitch Thompson. “We wrote ‘Good Beer’ with two of our best mates, Rocky Block and Jordan Dozzi, and we think it’s a fun way to give folks a sneak peek at a new project we’re excited to share soon.”
More new music to follow from the duo very soon.
Lifelong friends Tom Jordan and Mitch Thompson have created an unmistakable sound, evoking the laid-back, summery spirit of their Australian hometown. It was there, in Sydney, New South Wales, where they formed country band Seaforth, naming it after their native suburb north of the city. The two joined forces as a duo when Jordan returned to Seaforth after living and songwriting in Los Angeles for two years. After penning a few songs together, they began making trips to Nashville to showcase their music. Ultimately, after a fateful performance at Nashville’s The Basement, they were offered a record deal with Sony Music Nashville on the spot and moved to Music City in late 2017.
Fast-forward one year, and they released their debut single to country radio, “Love That,” which was packaged together with three more tracks and released as their debut EP of the same name. The short-player, co-produced by Seaforth and Huff, garnered praise from outlets like Billboard and Sounds Like Nashville and earned them a nomination for MusicRow Discovery Artist of the Year. The duo has also been awarded the prestigious ARPA Breakthrough Songwriter of the Year-Nashville. Later that year, they dropped Gold-certified single “Anything She Says,” their collaboration with Sony Music Nashville labelmate Mitchell Tenpenny, which placed on Billboard‘s Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay charts and has amassed over 85 million on-demand streams. In September 2019, they unveiled Reimagined, a two-song project reworking two cuts from their debut, “Love That” and “Good and Gone,” with sparse instrumentation and orchestral strings. That same month, they made their Grand Ole Opry debut. One year later, Seaforth returned to new music platforms with “Everything Falls For You,” their most mature offering up to that point. While matching the lively spirit of their past music, “Everything Falls For You” elevated Seaforth’s sound to new creative heights with its swung, graceful rhythm and thoughtful hook. Soon after, “Talk About” and “Close Enough” followed suit, tapping into the intense feelings and lack of clarity at the start of a relationship. Meanwhile, “Breakups” arrived in January 2021, which Billboard lauded as an “acoustic tale of the lingering anguish following a breakup.” The track pairs Jordan and Thompson’s silky vocals atop a swooning acoustic track for one of their most personal, heartfelt performances to date. With a sing-along chorus and plaintive feel, “Breakups” is a commanding entry as one of the first country heartache songs of the year. Seaforth kicked off 2022 with the release of their latest single “Good Beer”, showcasing the duo’s signature good vibes and cheeky humour.
Throughout the evolution of their sound, from their earliest days jamming on guitar to opening for stars like Kane Brown and Brett Young, Jordan and Thompson have remained steadfast in their authentic approach and fine-tuned workflow.
