Following on from her UK iTunes number one single “You Say”, rising country singer-songwriter Becky Lawrence is about to release the brand new song “Maple State” – a musical tribute to Calgary – on Canadian Thanksgiving.
This is Becky’s second collaboration with songwriter Hugh Webber, who has worked with Platinum songwriters during his time with the Songwriting Academy in London. He has also provided music tracks for advertising projects, ghost-written for European producers on pop songs, and was recently a semi-finalist in the UK Songwriting Competition.
Speaking about her upcoming release, Becky said “Canada is the only place in the world, other than the Isle of Man, where I feel at home,” commented Becky. “I have always felt a natural affinity with Canada and was ecstatic to finally have the opportunity to visit and take in the breathtaking, cinematic scenery.”
Becky continued, “We’ve chosen to release on Canadian Thanksgiving, because this song is filled with thanks for the experiences I enjoyed, and memories I made when in Canada. Years later, I still vividly remember the emotions I felt during my time there; one thing that has particularly stuck with me is the smell of the pine trees, which is just unreal. For those who don’t know, I am a #GratefulGang leader, and practice the art of the attitude of gratitude every day.”
Hugh added, “It was a real pleasure writing this song with Becky. I’ve not been to Canada but by the end of writing I wanted to go and experience everything in the song myself. I hope it will have the same impression on the listener.”
This upcoming release allows listeners to see a new side to Becky’s musical repertoire, by infusing the delicate beauty behind her voice with a relaxing country backing track that will leave you with a natural lasting impression.
In this release, we see Becky infusing discrete elements of folk with her ear-catching country musical style, which help’s to create a feel-good vibe that perfectly reflects the lyrical journey behind the song, & allows listeners to experience a new side to this talented musician’s unique artistic individuality.
Becky delivers a dynamic vocal performance that perfectly captures the natural character behind the song, which allows listeners to feel an instant sense of engagement to heartfelt energy that travels through the full duration of this stunning track.
