elbourne singer-songwriter, Tyne-James Organ, today returns with a superb new single and video, ‘Graceful,’ and with it shows off the next huge step in his artistic development.
Having spent the last 12 months in the studio and on the road honing his craft, ‘Graceful’ marks the latest big move for the 22-year-old Wollongong native, who now resides in the creative hub of Melbourne.
The follow up to his breakout single, ‘Watch You Go,’ ‘Graceful’ is a much more upbeat number, and sees him aim big – going for a big sound, while continuing to focus on the delicacy of his lyricism.
Speaking of the song, Organ explains the writing process was incredibly cathartic. “I’m really excited to be sharing Graceful, because it perfectly sums up the past 12 months of my life, and puts into place everything I’ve wanted to say but just haven't been able to find the right words for. It’s funny, when you’re with someone they can so easily make you feel like you're the entire world, but then the moment that’s gone you find yourself questioning every part of your existence. For me, creating this song was about emerging out the other side and finding a sense of grace within myself again.”
It’s songs like ‘Graceful’ that have transformed Organ’s career in the last 12 months. After originally finding fame through performing acoustic covers on Youtube, he now boasts over a million streams of his own material, as well as praise from the likes of triple j, The Music, Pilerats, Best Before, and The AU Review, just to name a few.
His breakout single, ‘Watch You Go,’ was released at the end of last year – a heartfelt song written for his late father – and became his first song to be added to rotation on triple j. Since its release, he’s sold out solo tours and supported big name acts like Jake Bugg and Lanks, as well as performing as part of his good friend and label mate Mallrat’s on stage show, including her momentous Splendour In The Grass set.
