Description

With his warming, coastal acoustic sounds and gently pulsing minimalistic beats that push and pull with the tides of the ocean, James Abberley from the Western-shores of Australia is releasing an introspective single, 'You're The One' (Out October 30).

Over the past number of years, Abberley has hit impressive milestones throughout his career which include supporting the likes of Xavier RuddThe WaifsPaul DempsyAsh Grunwald and Kim Churchill. Abberley's also performed at a number of WA festivals including Nannup Festival and Into The Sun Festival to name a few.

In January this year, Abberley made his way to New Zealand for the first time where four of the six shows sold out. This trend has continued with the return of live music in WA with Abberley selling out his last 5 shows. 

Now in quick succession to follow up his most recent single 'Drifting' (released in August) is 'You're The One'. With a "from the heart" passion and seriousness, this weighty number is indicative of the heart-pounding emotions tied to a yearning for the one as the title suggests. Abberley states:

"'You're The One' is about that moment when you are trying to fall asleep, but no matter what you do, you just can't get that person that you love or want out of your head. It's amazing to me that you can feel like a slave to your own thoughts."

Generating this feeling is Abberley's easy listening blend of acoustic-folk, minimalistic beats and his tender vocal tone that is laced with a soft Australiana accent.

Abberley's music imbues a sense of tranquillity and meditative space for introspection.
