Today, Christian Beharie, better known as Beharie, shares his third EP with the world. 'Beharie, the Third' is the newest chapter in Beharie's universe. An independent and uncompromising step into the art world full of self-confidence.
Inspired by a life crammed with rootless uncertainties. A note from a figure, who jumps off a cliff without wings. And lands on one leg. It tells stories of love, insecurity, longing and curiosity. With a singer-songwriter touch on the songwriting, the stories are wrapped in a searching indie-soul expression, with sounds that create cinematic impressions.
Drawing inspiration from artists like Frank Ocean, Moses Sumney, Fleet Foxes and Leon Bridges, Beharie pulls the strings between the rawness of soul and the melodic and experimental lines from pop, indie and the singer/songwriter genre. He is an old soul with a distinctive expression that balances neatly between searching for an identity and independence. Rooted in an abundantly musical family, it’s no surprise he flourished into a musician himself. He spent his younger years consumed by music; learning new instruments, playing in school bands and singing in choirs alongside his four siblings, before eventually going on to study contemporary music at the university and launching his solo career.
Despite being early on in his solo career, he already won a Spellemann (Norwegian Grammy awards), in the category R&B/Soul. Besides, having already supported Norwegian and international names like William Fitzsimmons, Bernhoft and Madison McFerrin, as well as receiving a nomination for the 2022 Swedish Gaffa Awards (International newcomer of the year). Beharie is ready to bring his ever-developing sound to the airwaves of Scandinavia and the rest of the world with this new EP.
