GRAMMY-nominated, multi-platinum selling singer, songwriter, and producer JHart (AKA James Abrahart) unveils his debut solo single, the emotionally-charged soul-pop anthem “Put It To Bed.” The track debuted earlier this week on Beats1’s A-List Pop Live show with host and purveyor of pop music, Arjan Timmermans, who proclaimed “the state of pop is strong, JHart is solid proof of that.” Complete with cinematic strings, soaring vocals, and a slow-simmering bedroom-ready bassline, the song was written and produced by JHart and Nick Ruth (5 Seconds of Summer, Kelly Clarkson, Carly Rae Jepsen) and joffers listeners an exciting first taste of what’s to come from his forthcoming project, Vol 1 – Songs From Therapy, due later this year. Other collaborators on the project include Greg Wells and Lostboy.
The inspiration for ‘Vol 1 – Songs From Therapy’ came after listening to audio recorded during his own personal therapy sessions. As he explains, “When I started going to therapy, I noticed a change in my ability to be present creatively, so after a few months I pitched my therapist the idea of recording our sessions with the goal of writing my record and he agreed to it. Therapy also helped me get over a fear of performing that stopped me from pursuing an artist project for most of my adult life.”
