Singer Becky Bowe dropped her new single ‘Don’t Darken My Door’ on the 6th March via Two Bridge Recordings. Aidan Thompson who forms part of Max Restanio’s band (Supporting Rebecca Furguson, UB40 and Tears for Fears), assisted with the producing and composing of this track. Becky is the 2017 winner of BBC’s Pitch Battle and has sung with musicians Will Young and Kelis. Her single ‘That’s How Love Works’ ranked Number 9 in the UK iTunes singer-songwriter charts. She has been featured on BBC Introducing York. Becky’s journey with the BBC starts earlier for the singer, as a previous backing vocalist for the BBC show This Is My Song.
Before her fame, Becky was raised in a small town called Knaresborough. In her childhood, Becky would watch her grandmother playing the piano. Developing an interest in the instrument herself, she would start piano lessons at the age of 9 years old. After a revelation from her teacher about her vocals, the young pianist would move to vocal training at the age of 12 years. While living in Harrogate, Becky would showcase her talent around the area at the age of 14. Now at 23 years, the songstress has been making a name for herself with television features and live performances with internationally acclaimed musicians. These remarkable achievements have happened, all before the release of her forthcoming EP.
Beck Bowe talks about the inspiration for the single, “Don’t Darken My Door’ is influenced by a specific weekend where two family members went through a break up at the same time and they both were influenced in different ways. One family member was bombarded with text messages and just said back “don’t darken my door” and I just thought ‘WHAT A GREAT LYRIC!’ I based the song around their breakups and created this song. The song is a vibe, it’s not supposed to be your usual break up song it has the level of ‘I don’t want you in my life anymore’ but in a more relaxed way and not throwing it in the audience’s face. It’s a non-aggressive breakup song for any person.”
