Have you alredy managed to fall for Erik Hassle for the latest 2 years? Ready for a new talented Mr. Hassle in Swedish music? Ladies and gentlemen, here's a fresh promising artist I'd like to present you - Simon Hassle.
Though you probably hear Simon's name first time, he already has heavy gospel/musical background performing in live shows across Sweden and being the youngest member of the very well known gospel chorus One Voice led by Gabriel Forss. Here we get debut single from Simon - "Now Is Here" recorded with Emanuel Olsson at Cosmos Studios.
"Now Is Here" is powerful piano-based song in a lighter Linkin Park style with epic sound, massive production and beautiful Simon's voice leaving no doubt that we're gonna hear more from this artist soon. Video for "Now is here" is mix of Simon shots and Chief Oren Lyons' "The Ice is Melting" speech on Millennium Peace Summit.
