For Immediate Release: October 29th, 2021. Vancouver, BC
Singer…..songwriter….performer….show producer Becca Hess is rooted in a country music legacy (Dad/BCCMA Hall-of-Famer Kenny Hess) but her sound is all her own. With classic influences and an eclectic, fresh approach, Becca’s compelling performances and big rich voice captivate listeners. Her soulful songwriting radiates throughout her sophomore album “Truth”, which was recorded under the production guidance of Tom and Carly McKillip (CCMA Producer of the Year) and bolstered by two years working with Nashville producer Byron Hill.
The lead out single “Stranded” debuted on SiriusXM Country and garnered 4 BC Country Music Award Nominations including Female Artist of the Year, Single of the Year and won her the title of Industry Person of the Year.
Becca’s brand new single “Sleeping Around” showcases her powerhouse vocals in a big, feel-good pop production of what could have been just another breakup song.
The second single from Becca Hess’s sophomore album called Truth, “Sleeping Around”
is more than meets the eye “This song immediately caught my attention – the melody stuck with me for a long time after each listening session while we were choosing songs for the record..”
describes Becca. “.. and the story of a song has always been the thing that moves me most. With Sleeping Around, I knew immediately this was a song that you could relate to, one that moved you to a memory. Brett and Chase (writers Tyler and McGill) absolutely nailed this one and I am so glad I had the honour of recording it.”
Written by Nashville hitmakers Brett Tyler (Maren Morris, Luke Combs, Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan) and Chase McGill (Kenny Chesney, Blake Shelton, Little Big Town, Luke Bryan), “Sleeping Around” is sure to stick with you long after the last note.
Sleeping Around is available October 29th on all purchase and streaming platforms, and available to Canadian radio.
