New Music: ‘Someone I Never Knew’ by Angus Legg

Melbourne singer-songwriter Angus Legg navigates loss and grief on his captivating new single ‘Someone I Never Knew’.

Angus says he was moved to write ‘Someone I Never Knew’ as part of the healing process after the death of his father.

“My father passed away when I was 19. He was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer and passed weeks later,” Angus says.

“’Someone I Never Knew’ is a concept that explores the grief I’ve experienced and worked through during adolescence and into early adulthood. The inevitable truth became evident to me: a loved one cannot experience who you are today, and ultimately never know who you are to become.

“To me that has been the hardest thing to accept about grief – all the wounds have healed with time, except the idea of not being able to share triumph and failure with someone so close to you. That’s permanent, and the saddest part about death.”

Penned as a letter to his late father, ‘Someone I Never Knew’ brims with heartfelt lyrical wisdom and continues to build Angus Legg’s narrative as a vulnerable, articulate and moving singer-songwriter,

Angus worked with close friend San Joseph (Island Records) to produce the track and arrange the instrumentation, utilising a range of live elements including nylon string guitar, violin, cello and mandolin.

‘Someone I Never Knew’ was mixed by Hayden Francis (Woodes, Boy Soda, wolfjay), with mastering at Studio 301 by Ben Feggans (Amy Shark, Mallrat, Sampa The Great).

‘Someone I Never Knew’ is available now. Visit Beehive PR for more about Angus Legg.
