If you listen to the radio which I’m sure the majority of you do, you definitely would have heard the amazing song ‘False Alarm’ by Becky Hill being played. The song has reached 35 in the UK Top 40 so far, but I’m sure it’ll climb the charts even further. Not only has it recently been chosen as ‘Track Of The Day’ on BBC Radio 1, it’s also had over 50 million streams on Spotify. If you haven’t already fallen in love, wait until you hear this stunning version.
Who is Becky Hill?
If you don’t already know, Becky is a singer-songwriter from Worcestershire, England. She became known after featuring on the first series of The Voice UK in 2012. Although she didn’t win the competition, she got as far as the semi-final. In 2014, she became the first Voice UK contestant to get a Number 1 single with Oliver Heldens song ‘Gecko (Overdrive)’ which is an absolute tune!
Since the release of her live version of ‘False Alarm’, Becky also confirmed that she will be releasing another single entitled ‘Warm’ over the next few weeks. This will be her third single she’s released so far following singles ‘Losing’ and ‘Back To My Love’ featuring Little Simz.
Becky will be performing her first solo headline show at London Electrowerkz on November 2nd. If you’d planned on going, I’m afraid you’re too late. Tickets have sold out. Pretty awesome to sell out your first solo show, well done Becky!
It looks as though despite not winning the show, her career is really taking off. I’m hoping that she’ll announce a debut album really soon so we can all hear what else she has to offer.
Inspired by her live studio performance, I had a look to see which other artists have released live studio versions of their songs. You definitely need to check these out.
Do you prefer it when artists release live versions of their songs? I think it really showcases their talent even more. I love being able to really hear their voices, sometimes it can be overshadowed by their instrumental backgrounds. Let me know what you think in the comments box below.
