The team at Island Records Australia knew they were onto a good thing with 18 year old Newcastle producer Just A Gent (aka Jacob Grant) this time last year, when they inked him to a label deal.
He’s provided remixes for some of pop’s brightest new talent, has sold out live dates across the country (with more to come over the summer months), notched up almost 24 million streams on his Soundcloud page and is still working on that forthcoming debut EP.
Now he’s back with new single ‘Heavy As A Heartbreak’, which ropes in the vocal talents of Melbourne singer songwriter Will Cuming (aka Lanks), who himself is no stranger to success, having played the support role on tour by Andy Bull, Jarryd James, and Safia, as well as being fingered as a Triple J Unearthed Spotlight Artist.
Two great young pop talents colliding. And, as expected, the results are pretty spectacular.
