Can we take a minute and talk about how fantastic Harry’s voice sounds on this song? It’s rich, it’s not strained, his technique is on point for rock. his falsetto is clear and pure. The beginning in particular is clean and precise. His belt at the end is open and fully supported. His breath control is spot on. And the little details like the way he transitions from chest voice to falsetto in the bridge on “will we ever learn?” is SO SMART. He’s using such strong dynamics. He has grown so much and I’m just so incredibly impressed. And so incredibly proud.
So, you know how I sat next to a guy named Larry at my Harry show last night (for reals–no candid camera or anything!)? He was a guy in his forties, teaches high school, saw Harry on Carpool Karaoke and is a hard core rock music fan (we talked lots and lots about classic rock much to my happy aged heart)…anyway, several times during the show he’d look over at me with this face like “holy shit? he’s amazing?!” And I’d just nod knowingly. At the end of the show he said to me, “He’s really, really good. How old is he?” I told him and he said “Shit. All that talent. Amazing.”
I’m happy to report my new friend Larry left the show a FAN.
I’m so proud. And more in love with our boy than ever.
