Tom Hanley Releases Debut Song “Overnight”
Toronto-based indie-rock singer-songwriter Tom Hanley released his debut song “Overnight” on November 3, 2023.
After leaving six piece funk band JUICE, it is his first music as a solo artist.
The song will appear on his upcoming debut solo album of the same name.
He wrote the song with Nick Boyd over Zoom at the beginning of the lockdowns in 2020. Then he recorded the song at his home studio and Giant Studios in Toronto.
Tom Hanley said of the song, “The song is about how the whole world basically changed 'Overnight.' It's also the title of the album. This project has been in the works for a long time, like probably the summation of five years of work searching for what I want to sound like as a solo artist. So it also has a bit of a double meaning because calling a project that took years to get to the finish line 'Overnight' makes me laugh.”
- He continued, “This whole project has been DIY. Other than two studio days at Giant Studios in Toronto where we recorded nine bed tracks, I recorded, produced and arranged everything at my home studio. That goes for the majority of visuals as well. All of the promo vids, lyric video and music video I shot and edited myself.”
He has already filmed a music video for the song, which is coming soon.
He added, “Over the course of the lockdowns I filmed everything I did, from baking, puzzles, learning to properly care for plants and getting a kitten. I wanted to catch it all so when we were back to normal this video would be a time capsule. Sure, it's a time I think we all somewhat try to forget, but in those hard times there were beautiful moments.”
