Norwegian singer songwriter Beharie shares soulful, melodic debut single ‘Losing My Mind’ (rel 03.05.19). The stunning debut is the first installment of Beharie’s five track EP due for release Autumn 2019.
‘Losing My Mind’ is an exquisite fusion of both modern and traditional influences across soul and electronica. The result is a beautiful melodic sound, interspersed with unique atmospheric touches that stretch the boundaries of pop music.
Speaking about the song Beharie said “The song is about the struggles of being an introverted, soul in a world of full of perceived extroverts and carrying an overwhelming fear of not being good enough or fitting in with the crowd.
Christian Beharie grew up listening to classic RnB, HipHop and reggae royalty such as The Fugees, Sting and Bob Marley, their timeless soulful sounds combined with Beharie’s classic music schooling have helped shaped Beharie into the unique talent that we hear today. However, it wasn’t until his move to the Norwegian capital city of Oslo that his solo career started to take off. He was offered a role in the critically acclaimed play “The Book of Mormon” and then spent a few years writing a number of demos in search of the right expression. It wasn’t until he teamed up with rising Norwegian producer and childhood friend Trygve Stakkeland that he was able to truly hone his own unique sound and write a captivating debut EP that describes a journey to find identity, love and a sense of belonging.
