In just a few short years, lifelong friends Tom Jordan and Mitch Thompson have created an unmistakable sound evoking the laidback, 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.
Today, with a global fan base and their latest release “Breakups” making a viral splash, Seaforth is continuing to evolve their authentic, progressive approach to country music. The song, which Billboard lauded as an “acoustic tale of the lingering anguish following a breakup,” 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.
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.
“Mitch and I have had this cool, serendipitous connection our whole lives,” Jordan says, “But it wasn’t until we collaborated that first time that it felt like we were meant to be friends. Like we were always meant to do this.”
We are so excited to welcome Seaforth on the Nashville Next Stage this summer at CFF2022. Connect with us @countryfanfest on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. Be a fan on Facebook!
