SINGLE REVIEW: Deserve Your Love by Harry Cleverdon

Harry Cleverdon, the singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Young, NSW is making tremendous inroads into the Australian music scene.

Harry has just released a new track, Deserve Your Love, which is taken from his highly accomplished and much-praised debut album Octothorpe. The new song features another impassioned vocal performance from Harry, coupled to a lyric that reflects insightful observations about human relationships that belies the musician’s age. The song is intimate sounding and affecting, with a smooth and sophisticated production highlighting not only Harry’s exceptionally evocative voice but his ardent delivery and ability to craft finely-honed contemporary songs that have the effect of sounding timeless.
