RJ Ayesha caught up with British singer and songwriter, Becky Hill. She rose to fame after auditioning with John Legend’s ‘Ordinary People’ on the inaugural series of the BBC (now ITV) talent show The Voice UK.
She joined Jessie J’s team and advanced to the competition’s semi-finals. When her debut single “Gecko (Overdrive)” with Oliver Heldens reached number one on the UK Singles Chart on 29th June, 2014, she became the first (and only) The Voice UK participant to do so. She was nominated for two Brit Awards in 2022, including British Song of the Year for her collaboration with David Guetta on “Remember” and Best Dance Act, which she won.
Becky Hill started playing in a band called ‘Shaking Trees’ when she was 14 years old. She received BBC Introducing support from Andrew Marston of BBC Hereford & Worcester, who chose her band to perform at the Nozstock Festival of Performing Arts, as well as a live session for Adam Green and Josh Withey of BBC Radio Shropshire.
Hill has performed live on YouTube, including The Rebelations, a web series. Hill collaborated with David Guetta on the singles ‘Last Time’ and ‘Remember’ which was released in 2021. They reached #39 and #3, respectively, with the latter becoming Hill’s fourth top-ten hit.
Hill shared a teaser for her debut album, ‘Only Honest on the Weekend’, with a trailer on Instagram last July. The trailer featured previously unheard tracks ‘My Heart Goes (La Di Da)’ with Topic and ‘Through the Night’ with 220 Kid. Hill recently teamed up with David Guetta and Ella Henderson on the single “Crazy What Love Can Do” on 8th April.
