Bruno Major strides forward with his pulsing new track "There's Little Left"

“I have nearly 400 songs on my computer, all these thoughts and feelings and stories. I'm proud of them, they are part of me,” begins Northampton native Bruno Major.

Bruno's journey to this point is a typically modern one: the tenaciously prolific songwriter began collaborating with a handful of new artists from his Camden bedroom two years ago, eventually landing himself a deal with Method Music - publishing powerhouse already home to Disclosure and Sam Smith.

Granted, the brother (and housemate) of London Grammar’s Dot Major, Bruno will inevitably need to deal with the occasional cry of nepotism. Handily, his string of recent songwriting credits speak volumes. With a share of Liv Dawson’s stellar first singles “Still” and “Tapestry”, as well as a piece of SG Lewis’ beatific “Yours”, Bruno is deservedly the hyped new kid at Method.

Bruno's own music is ticking over rather nicely, too. His August debut “Wouldn’t Mean A Thing” borrows from the iconic nighttime pulse of both James Blake and Jamie Woon, while this month’s follow-up “There’s Little Left” brings chopped up drum samples into the equation, expertly splicing them between sheets of hushed guitar and languid, nostalgic vocals. “A 2017 Chet Baker,” or so he jokingly describes himself.

Quizzed on his plans for the future, Bruno’s ambitions are totally pure. “I want to put music out, a song every month, for the rest of my artistic career. Until I have nothing left to say. I just want a body of work that I'm proud of. That's it.” For the time being, it’s us that have run out of words.
