Harrison on the making of “How Can It Be” as told to The Fader:
“This was one of the first tracks I did with Maddee and it was funny at the time because she’s my friends little sister so she would always come over for sessions. I had also invited friends over. There was about 5 people in the room when it was being made. They were just chilling on their phones or playing video games or whatever and would go quiet when Maddee said she needed quiet. It was very cute.”

More about Harrison:
In two short years, the prodigious Toronto producer has gone from teenage bedroom beatmaker showcasing his homemade, sample-savvy wares on Soundcloud to hotly tipped studio savant positioned at the front lines of the city’s R&B renaissance. His aesthetic has proven malleable enough to make him feel right at home on bills alongside everyone from hip-hop reconstructionists Cashmere Cat and Ryan Hemsworth to synth-funk technician Com Truise to digi-pop maximalist Wave Racer to avant-garde innovator Jon Hopkins to indie upstarts Purity Ring. Still only 19, Harrison is set to make the leap from word-of-mouse phenom to marquee recording artist with the 2015 release of his debut album (on Last Gang Records in North America and Star Slingers’ Jet Jam imprint in Europe), an equally loopy and libidinous hit of psychedelic 22nd-century soul music.
