Talented Songwriter Harry Jay-Steele Shares New Single ‘Not Quite Like This’

East London based songwriter, guitarist and producer Harry Jay-Steele shares ‘Not Quite Like This’ – another cut from his upcoming debut album, ‘Boundaries’ due for release on 4th December via eclectic audiophile label Naim Records.

Recorded with Jordan Rakei’s co-producer and drummer Jim Macrae, the song is heavily influenced Afrobeats and tackles personal experiences close to the artist. “It’s a song in defiance against being labelled and judges but also about the fluidity of self. A message amplified by the shifting effect of the artist’s auto-tuned vocals.”

Explaining the production work behind the track, “I used auto-tune on this track partly because it’s Afrobeats influence but also due to the chameleon-like tonal affect it has one my voice. I felt its shifting nature sat well with lyrical message.”
