Countrytown, in partnership with KIX Country, is proud to announce Seaforth as the latest ‘Centre Stage’ artist. Every fortnight, we'll be shining a light on a single artist across all platforms including online features, airplay, and social support.
Childhood friends from three-years-old, Tom Jordan and Mitch Thompson found themselves drawn to similar music, listening to modern songwriters like Keith Urban one minute and old-school acts like The Beatles the next. The duo grew up in the suburb of Seaforth in New South Wales, and moved to Nashville in 2017 to develop their songwriting.
They released their debut EP, Love That, in 2019. The title track made waves on country radio and earned more than 43 million streams. They collaborated with Mitchell Tenpenny on their follow-up single Anything She Says, which was gold-certified and surpassed 79 million streams.
In 2020, they were awarded the APRA Award for ‘Breakthrough Songwriter Of The Year’. Their 2022 EP, What I Get For Loving You, featured their viral hit Breakups, Good Beer featuring Jordan Davis, Queen Of Daytona Beach featuring Sean Kingston, and the title track.
Fresh from appearances at the 50th CMA Fest in Nashville earlier this month, Seaforth released Get The Girl. Co-written with Rocky Block and Jordan Dozzi, Get The Girl once again features a strong, catchy, hook-heavy tone, staying true to Seaforth’s signature modern melodic sound.
Blending country, pop and ‘80s elements, Get The Girl was born from personal experiences with a twist on love. This self-produced track marks the popular duo’s first independent release after leaving Sony Nashville, a milestone in their journey.

After an amicable parting of ways with Sony Nashville – which saw them move from their hometown of Sydney to Nashville in 2017, getting signed, earning multiple Gold records, and sharing the stage with major US country artists at festival appearances, international tours and most recently a headline US tour – the duo are now pumped to be commencing a new journey as independent artists.
Seaforth said, “We’re more excited and driven than ever with this new chapter of independence. So much has happened in six years since we moved to Nashville at 23. Sony was great to us and supported us in tough times, but naturally our ambitions have grown/developed over time. We’ve never wanted to fit a mould, our goal has always been to create the best music possible, as we believe that’s what matters most to people.”
Previously having toured with Tenpenny and opened for Kane Brown, Australian audiences were rewarded with Seaforth’s first national tour in 2022, commencing with massive crowds at the Groundwater Country Music Festival on the Gold Coast, with headlining shows following in Adelaide, Melbourne, Geelong, Newcastle, and Sydney.
“Last year’s headline About Time tour through Australia was surreal,” they said. “We usually come home to see family and relax, but to finally play shows felt amazing. We played to some of the best crowds we’ve ever play for. There’s no place like home and we can’t wait to come back again, potentially even later this year, but we’re still putting it together. Exciting times for the fellas.”
Expect more releases from Seaforth in 2023 in the leadup to the release of their debut album.
