22 year old Becky Hill performed here at Ont’ Sofa way back in 2012 and performed a number of amazing covers for us from the likes of Paolo Nutini, Alex Care and Rudimental, who four years on has gone on to work with!
Becky appeared on the first series of The Voice in 2012 and was a part of Jessie J's team and managed to reach the semi finals. Despite not winning Becky Hill is the only artist from The Voice that has managed to gain a number one single in the UK.
Her collaboration with Dutch DJ Oliver Heldens in the summer of 2014 with the song ‘Gecko’ earned her, her first UK number one single. Oliver Heldens isn’t the only big name Becky has worked with, as she has worked with the likes of Wilkinson, MNEK and Rudimental and has just released her new single with MK called ‘Piece of me’ which features on Annie Mac’s Hottest Records playlist.
You can compare Becky Hill’s style to that of Ella Eyre’s and Jess Glynne’s, with some of her up beat powerful vocals, but we also know Becky is just as good at the slower stuff with her performances Ont’ Sofa such as her cover of Paolo Nutini’s ‘Last Request’.
