‘Away We Grow’ a collaboration between Sean Koch (South Africa) and Broken Back (France) - created through sharing ideas and writing from two different sides of the globe! The produced track coming from France and the vocal melody created in South Africa. Its message speaks of all the good things to come, this along with a big sound and a warm, uplifting acoustic melody ready to grace your ears!

“It was an absolute pleasure working with such a talented artist who possesses a sound I really connect with” Koch says.

Growing up in Kommetije together with friends like Jeremy Loops and Alice Phoebe Lou, Koch spent most of his time surfing or with his guitar at secluded beaches, which is where he formed and developed the songs which later blossomed into his now thriving music career and many of the songs the fans have grown to know and love!

Broken Back is arguably one of France’s most popular acts with an audience that spans far into the rest of Europe. Broken Back recently released his latest Album “Oh My” which has been received with an enormously positive reception. In addition, Broken Back has had multiple rotating and charting tunes on radio in Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands and various other parts of Europe with the arguably the biggest being “RIVA” with Klingande which went top 5 in both Germany and Switzerland as well as receiving extensive play across the rest of GSA and greater Europe.

Sean Koch brings with him the sunny and easy vibes of the South African surf life to the world. He was born and raised in the small village of Kommetjie just outside of Cape Town.

From getting up in the early morning until going to bed at night, constantly listening to his favourite music which brought him inspiration for life. After friends discovered his first songs, which had been written for himself only, they motivated Sean to bring his music to the people.

2019 saw the release of his debut full length album titled ‘Your Mind is a Picture’ with songs such as ‘Feel the Energy’ and ‘We all Believe’ that have stuck to the rootsy, acoustic sound yet bringing in the dance vibe that Sean is adamant of keeping throughout his story telling music. THis followed by a number of alternative versions from the album and later the “Feeling EP” in early 2021.
About Broken Back

"Misfortune fathers tomorrow's happiness", a popular refrain, a nod to Albert Cohen. "The idea is that, in every unfortunate experience, there is an element of collateral happiness. The level of happiness varies according to whether you embrace this concept or not". This philosophy has become his driving force. His story is one of a talented guy, with his head screwed on and with everything to play for in the world of entrepreneurship. Someone who didn't spare himself. By day, he was attending classes at a major business school. At night, he was running his own start-ups. All of a sudden, at twenty-two years old, his back could take no more. It gave way. That led to a long period of convalescence. But restricting himself was not his style. So Jérôme pulled his old classical guitar out of the wardrobe, and recorded a few of his own compositions. And Broken Back was born. The result: songs like “Happiest Man on Earth” and “Halcyon Birds” that have brought fans together and gone viral, racking up millions of views. Picked up by influential DJs and blogs (and much more to come), that is quite a turnaround for an artist who, three years earlier, was confined to his bed, his back broken and his morale on the wane. If you have to remember only one thing : "Misfortune fathers tomorrow's happiness".
