The Radically Honest ‘About Me’ Page

A normal About Page should read something like…

Lush, cinematic pop orchestrations combined with simple, heartfelt lyrics delivered by a passionate and honest voice are the core of Australian singer, songwriter and producer BROADHURST. With a diversity of sound ranging from stripped back emotive piano and haunting vocals to precision electronica and soaring synths lead to stylistic comparisons to the smooth tones or Rhye, subtlety of Hundred Waters or Emma-Louise and electronic funk of Daft Punk.

I could also throw in a quote so that you can see that people ‘in the know’ are paying attention to what I do…

“BROADHURST delivers one of the best tracks of the year” ~ Idolator.com

But the radically honest About Page sounds more like this…

Hey, I’m Nick, and I called myself BROADHURST because I reckon my last name is cool and I want to maintain some sort of anonymity for when I am reeeaaally famous (actually, that’s not true, I reckon calling up a restaurant and hearing the person on the other end of the line get all star struck when I utter my last name would be pretty fun).

For the first 35 years of my life I tried everything I could to NOT create music, even though everyday I felt that little part of me dying inside. A reflection of an ‘un-lived life.’ Then I fell in love (again) but this time was different. When I was trying to pull myself out of this creative chasm, I re-read ‘Think and Grow Rich’ where Mr Hill talks about how behind all successful men there is usually a deep love which spurs them on to greatness. That’s what happened. I’ll let you decide if I am ‘great’ but all that really matters is that I got my shit together and my music is finally out there. No taking it back now! Take that you pesky little thing called ‘resistance’!

Here’s the other shocking truth About Me… I am totally independent. Yes, I know I know, my productions are super slick and look like Sony just threw a couple a hundred G’s at them (I think so anyway) but I am 100% a self made music man. I do of course have a team of super talented people who believe in me and do waaay too much for waaay too little, for whom I am forever grateful. I have been approached by some majors (and plenty of minnies) but to be honest, I just wanted to get it out there and hold hands with my own creative and business savvy self to see what I truly have first before marrying my music to someone else. But always open to a better way.

So, if you are an artist who is struggling to break threw your blocks, then I will do my best to pass on what I have learned. If you are in the music industry and curious about who I am and what I do, then all I can say is I am so happy you’re here… now go share my music!

    Hey,

    Greetings from India! My friends introduced me to your music last night and I have not been able to stop listening ever since. It is amazing to hear such soulful lyrics and amazing compositions coming from independent artists. Wish you all the luck in the world. Do come to India one day, we aren’t that far!
