Seaforth    

Country Music Duo

Australian country duo Seaforth is known for dropping infectious melodies, breezy lyrics and bangers with slick vocal harmonies that top every party playlist. Through their new EP "What I Get For Loving You," Seaforth's Tom Jordan and Mitch Thompson – childhood friends who take their name from the Sydney suburb where they grew up – want to expand popular perception to include articulate, authentic songwriting that does a deeper dive into the human experience.

Growth was hard won for the pair who thought they were on the fast track to their dreams at the end of 2019. Seaforth just finished opening shows in Sydney for their musical hero Keith Urban, was playing to full houses in Europe at Country 2 Country Festival, booked their first soldout headlining show in Australia and felt like the world was at their feet. Then, the harsh reality of the pandemic isolated them from their careers, their friends, and held them captive a world away from their families in Australia.

They learned to cook. Thompson became an avid gardener, putting down his guitar for six months. Jordan rededicated himself to growing his musical production skills, creating beats and melodies for no one in particular. Lacking inspiration, they didn't write a song until the end of 2020.

They say fans on Instagram were a catalyst for snapping them out of their creative funk. A challenge circulating on the platform prompted artists to play an unreleased song. The duo's friends in Avenue Beat tagged them. Jordan and Thompson posted a snip of the heart wrenching "Breakups," a song they’d been toying with, and watched thousands of people respond immediately.

Most of the songs on the EP were crafted in their Nashville home during lockdown. Jordan harnessed his newly refined production skills, and the duo recorded the collection in a small room at home. They outsourced the players, trusted each other's opinions and couldn't be happier with the outcome.

While 2020 didn't work out as planned for them, they emerged with a group of songs sure to turn heads – and volume knobs. Seaforth is plunging into this EP release with an impressive 340 million global on-demand streams and a Gold-certified single for their Mitchell Tenpenny duet "Anything She Says."

Jordan and Thompson left Australia to come to Nashville and play their brand of country music. In that way, the fast track led to their dreams with a few unexpected bumps along the way.

"We do have real stories to tell," Jordan says. "We want make sure people know that."
