A 10-year-old girl by the name of Harper has joined forces with Shadow of Intent guitarist Chris Wiseman (who worked on the track) for a new metal project. You may actually be aware of Harper given some recent media coverage; Harper caught a lot of attention for a Spiritbox cover she performed on America’s Got Talent; this was then followed up with her being invited to meet and perform on stage alongside Spiritbox.
Since that awesome opportunity, Harper has since been signed to Spiritbox’s Pale Chord label, and has released a single titled “Fallen.” You can check out the 10-year-old’s metal single below:
What are your thoughts on this track? It is surreal to think of a young kid creating such heavy as hell metal. In fact, while these kids are older than her, there are several other artists in metal bands who happen to be the children of famous celebrities.
Per the “About” section on Harper’s website:
“Being a musician at 10 years old is no easy feat, but only one year into her music career Harper has already turned heads and made waves within the rock and metal music scene. Having first burst onto the scene in the summer of 2021 with her own rendition of ‘Holy Roller’ by Spiritbox, the cover put all eyes on Harper gaining 220,000+ views and approval from the band themselves. Harpers video was shared worldwide garnering support from the likes of Kerrang! Magazine, Rocksound Magazine, Revolver Magazine and many more! ‘A STUNNING PERFORMANCE FROM A FUTURE ICON’
“Continuing to develop her craft Harper found guidance from one of the most prominent vocal coaches in the metal scene Melissa Cross, working closely with her to develop and keep her voice healthy whilst working on her own material. For this she recruited Chris Wiseman of the band Currents and Ben Lumber of Acres to help write and produce her music, Harpers debut single ‘Falling’ was released via Pale Chord in partnership with Rise Records.
“In May 2022 Harper flew to Los Angeles for her first live performance in front of celebrity judges Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum and Sofia Vergara on Americas Got Talent season 17. Singing to a 4000 strong sold out theatre in Pasadena, receiving approval from all 4 judges this truly made a statement for heavy music and proved she can hold her own.”
