Hourstone is a multi-talent from Singapore, known for his clever metaphors, mysterious vocals and artistic videos. Using deep house and chillout originals as his platform, he takes his audience into a black-white-red-golden world of a modern-day fairyland. Hourstone released two singles in 2019, both earning well-deserved attention on streaming platforms: Halfway House (443k Spotify streams) and Counting Down to 2 (93k Spotify streams).
Hourstone emerged from years of writing piano music to help himself through his darkest days after his father's sudden death when he was 15. His piano became his best friend - finding solace by constantly composing and playing. Although first forged from grief, his music lives and breathes authenticity, strong beats, mystery, and hope. Hear 65 Magazine states his music is a “ray of light” and a “phenomenon that moves something deep within our cores”. Music helped him through some of his darkest days and crystallized into a timeless rock, called Hourstone.
Hourstone is releasing "I Will Find a Way" on February 14 - a power ballad about overcoming hardships that all of us can relate to. The single will be released alongside a strikingly original music video using ancient runes and an Icelandic magical pathfinder stave, taking the viewer on a deeply personal and mystical journey.

Hourstone’s songwriting has distinctive and individual qualities setting it apart from the pack. His art may have its initial origins in grief, but you cannot confine Hourstone’s ultimate triumph to one song or fifty. Discovering a way to transmute his experiences from deep within into musical art is his greatest victory.
