Flume – Australian singer, producer, DJ
Flume’s real name is Harley Edward Streten. He was born on 5 November 1991 in Sydney. His father was a music producer and helped Harley discover the nuances of the industry rather early. Streten’s mother was a gardener and a teacher. The singer got a good education. He spent his childhood on the northern beaches of the Australian capital. Harley began writing lyrics and music when he was just 13 years old. At that time, he was a big fan of house music. In 2010, the singer presented his first songs, "Flow" and "Fizz", as well as several remixes.
A while later, he performed the song “Possum” as part of the Triple J Unearthed project. The artist’s work caught the attention of the music industry players. In 2011, an independent record company Future Classic offered Streten a contract. They helped him record "Over You", "Sleepless", and "Paper Thin". Later, these songs were featured in the singer’s debut EP, which he called Sleepless. The same year, Harley adopted the pseudonym Flume.
It took the young artist a year to release his debut LP, Flume. The album became highly successful. It featured such artists as Moon Holiday, Chet Faker, Jezzabell Doran, and New York rapper T-Shirt. It topped Australian iTunes charts and came in second on ARIA Albums Chart. The LP was certified platinum twice in Australia and earned gold in New Zealand.
