In March of 2021 Sydney-based singer-songwriter Huck Hastings released his debut full length offering in ‘Cheers To Progress’ and penned his first publishing deal with Gaga publishing. The album was featured in lists on NME and Junkee, had over half a million streams and sold out its first run of vinyl.
In the year since it’s release Hastings has been anything but quiet, serving up multiple singles with his two side-projects Hacky Sack and Hollow States (both placing in FBi Radio’s most played of 2021), a music video for his single ‘The Clincher’ - premiered on Triple J unearthed - and live performances supporting The Buoys, Andy Bull and Hachiku.
After three months of exploring solitude in Stockholm Hastings returns with follow-up single ‘Jane’ a timeless and cleverly penned exploration of time and meaning. “Jane is about working, living and life feeling like a long stretch of time.” - Huck Hastings
