10-year-old viral internet sensation, Harper, has dropped her debut single, “Falling”, and announced signing with renowned independent label, Pale Chord in partnership with Rise Records.

Check out the video for her first original release here:

The 10-year-old shot to internet stardom when she released an incredible one-take vocal cover of Spiritbox‘s breakout hit, “Holy Roller” in the summer last year, with the video clocking up over 225,000 YouTube views. Harper gained millions of new fans when she auditioned for primetime NBC show, America’s Got Talent with the same song last month, garnering a further 1.8 million YouTube views and wowing both the judges and the audience with her impressive vocal prowess. She also got to perform “Holy Roller” with Spiritbox at their sold-out show in London, UK last month. Now she has released her debut, original single written and produced with the help of Chris Wiseman (Shadow of Intent and Currents) and Ben Lumber (Acres).

Speaking on the release of her first-ever single, Harper shares:

“’Falling’ was written shortly after my cover of “Holy Roller”. This was the first creative process and songwriting process I’ve been a part of so it was super fun to create something I can call my own.”

On her favourite band, Harper reveals:

“Spiritbox became my favourite band as soon as I heard them and they’ve shown nothing but love and support for me since day one, they really are some of the kindest humans I’ve ever met! Getting to perform with them in London was a dream come true and a memory I will cherish and be forever grateful for.”

And on getting to release her new single:

“I am so excited to be working with Pale Chord for my debut single, the label have been nothing short of amazing to me and I’m excited to make some magic with them!”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
