24-year old Newcastle-born singer, songwriter and musician Jamie Lee Harrison is back with his brand new single titled “Powerful.” The new single comes on the back of Jamie Lee Harrison’s recent UK tour earlier in the year, and his main stage performance in front of 20,000 people, at this summer’s Newcastle Pride, alongside Alexandra Burke.
You might remember Jamie Lee Harrison from last year’s Britain’s Got Talent, where he captured the nation with his rendition of R.E.M’s ‘Everybody Hurts’, which has now been viewed over 2 million times on YouTube. He went on to the semifinals of that show, and later reached number eight on the official UK independent singles chart with his debut single “When We Meet.”
His new single ‘Powerful’ opens up as a strong slow building piano-led ballad, backed by lush string arrangements, before exploding into an infectious guitar and piano-heavy pop soul offering. Over this backdrop, Jamie Lee Harrison delivers a strong and impassioned rallying call for listeners to unlock their inner strengths, overcome their fears and break through boundaries. The song is brought to life and held together well by Jamie’s powerful vocal showing, purposeful songwriting, and heartfelt performance.
Speaking about the inspiration behind “Powerful,” Jamie Lee Harrison says, “I wrote the song about overcoming my own personal fears and breaking through boundaries; battling the lack of self-belief that has held me back.”
