05 MAY 2017 (TORONTO, ON) – Following the success of his debut single ‘Miss You’ and second release ‘Everyone’s Talking’, today the multi-talented singer-songwriter and producer James Hersey unleashes his eagerly anticipated debut EP Pages. Produced by Will Hicks (Ed Sheeran) and mixed by Stephen Fitszmaurice (Sam Smith, Disclosure), the EP includes the two singles along with two brand new tracks ‘Tomorrow’ and ‘Pages’, and fan favourite ‘Coming Over’.
We live in a world dominated by social media, instant communication and snap judgements, and it’s how this new instant gratification can co-exist with instinctive human emotions that Hersey shines a light on. Recorded in just ten days, Hersey calls the songs in ‘Pages’ EP a “collection of experiences over time”, which showcases a deeply personal and emotive side to the gifted musician. He goes on to say:
The Pages EP is about love in a time unlike any other. It’s about conveying real, analog emotions in a digital age. I don’t want to say we’ve been completely overrun by technology, but certainly a lot of our natural instincts are being exponentially replaced. In a way our souls are being transplanted, and it feels to me like the best time to re-evaluate our individual roles, and collectively contribute to a better future for everyone.”
 Hersey has accumulated 295 million streams to date with his music. Lead track ‘Miss You’ was selected as one of Annie Mac’s ‘New Names’ last year, amassing over 77 million streams and immediately shot up the Spotify Global Charts in 10 countries. After receiving a stellar remix treatment from HONNE the track continued its trajectory up to #1 and #2 on the Hype Machine charts.
‘Coming Over’ is the track that launched Hersey’s name to international recognition after dance heavyweights Filous, ​Kygo & Dillon Francis heard the original and were compelled to rework it, launching it to over 129 million streams globally. The release of the strikingly catchy summer-tinged original promises to captivate fans once more, showcasing Hersey’s extraordinary ability to craft epic yet delicate hooks.
Currently based in Berlin, but born in Vienna, Hersey’s deep passion and understanding for both​ lyrics and melody is seeing him quickly cut through as one of the brightest breakthrough talents in 2017.​
