HARBER is truly a star in the making. He’s earned an immense amount of success with his music, earning support from the likes of The Chainsmokers, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and is also slated to remix the latest single from The Chainsmokers & Ty Dolla $ign, “Do You Mean”.
He recently released a beautiful single with singer/songwriter Lexy Panterra titled “More Than You” that has been rising quickly up the dance charts since it’s release. It made its debut on Billboard Dance Club Play chart (currently #38), previously earned #3 Breakout song, and is currently in rotation on 30+ US Top 40 radio stations, 4 of which are top 10 in the country.
These two artists created a smash and I had the pleasure to talk with them about how the song came to be, what’s ahead for both of them, along with their upcoming press tour. Enjoy!
Tell us a little bit about how you two got connected and how did “More Than You” came about?
HARBER: I was working on the instrumental version of the song, which I had tentatively called “Give Me More,” and then I was connected with Kate Morgan to write the topline. Once we had the finished demo, we were looking for the perfect fit for the track and that’s when we connected with Lexy, who loved the record as well.
Lexy Panterra: Our mutual friend Kate Morgan. She wrote the record with Harry [HARBER]. She’s amazing! HARBER was looking for the right artist for the project and she referred me! It was very easy recording the record. Me and Kate have worked together a lot and it was a comfortable song for me in general — right up my ally! The video I was more involved in, obv! Haha. My boyfriend came up with the concept of “the night” being represented by this man who you couldn’t see. Then we built on the treatment from there.
Did you guys have any idea that “More Than You” was going to be as big of a success as it is now?
HARBER: It’s amazing to see something you’ve worked so hard on come together and then be so well received. We couldn’t be happier with the response and overwhelming support so far. We’ve gotten love from The Chainsmokers, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Chantel Jeffries, SiriusXM, Music Choice, and so many others. We’re just happy everybody is enjoying the record!!
Lexy Panterra: We are still pushing the record! But, it’s a smash — no doubt about that one!
You guys are both doing an upcoming press tour on 5/15-5/16. Is there one stop in particular that you’re most excited about?
HARBER: I’m really looking forward to the Pop Dust performance because I’m playing the piano for the acoustic version of “More Than You.” I don’t get to play the piano live often, so it’ll be fun!
Lexy Panterra: I mean, the whole tour will be busy and great! Our schedule is packed, kinda nervous haha. Hollywood Life is a big one, so that’s cool! Also doing an interview with Hot 97!
What’s one goal you each have that you want to accomplish by the end of the year?
HARBER: Well, now that “More Than You” has hit the Billboard Dance Club Song chart, we’d love to get it to #1!
Lexy Panterra: I mean, I’m trying to tour soon! I have enough music out right now. And to finally release my album!
Can we expect new music from each of you soon?
HARBER: I’m finishing up some remixes that I’m really excited about, which I can share with you very soon. I also have a bunch of original music that will be released starting this Summer that I wrote along with some really great songwriters and very talented vocalists.
Lexy Panterra: Friday, May 17th… my new single with Shaun Frank! Haha
Who is one artist you want to work with that you haven’t worked with yet?
Lexy Panterra: Oh man… KHALID and CALVIN HARRIS… WHERE YOU AT!? Lol!
Who is one artist that you’re listening to right now that’s really inspiring you?
HARBER: Major Lazer, for sure!
Lexy Panterra: My damn self — haha!
