South Australian artist Beccy Cole is one country music’s greatest performers – and one of the funniest – as well as one of Australia’s most astute songwriters. A tour through her catalogue takes you from the sharp, hilarious ‘Lazy Bones’ and ‘Sorry I Asked’ to the touching ‘Gloria’s Roses’ and the sentimental ‘Blackwood Hill’. Beccy has ten Golden Guitars (including four for Female Artist of the Year) as well as multiple ARIA Top 10 Country and Top 40 Mainstream albums, a Top 10 DVD, three gold-certified releases, and more than a dozen #1 Australian country singles. She is a country music icon – and that is entirely because of the music she produces and the way she brings it to audiences.
Beccy’s last album was Sweet Rebecca in 2015; on 24 August this year she will release Lioness, and the title single is out now. It is classic Beccy in that she tells a great story and always feels like she’s singing directly to the listener; it is new Beccy in that it’s her first release since marrying long-time partner Libby O’Donovan, and Lioness is the first album produced 100 per cent by women, from the artist to the producer to the musicians.
Any new music from Beccy Cole is an occasion, and this song is no different.
