Becky Hill

With her highly mature, resonant voice, Becky Hill first came to the public’s attention competing on series one of The Voice UK, reaching the show’s semi-final. Hill became the first contestant to score a number one single when “Gecko (Overdrive),” her collaboration with Oliver Heldens, topped the U.K. singles chart in 2014. A compilation album collecting Hill’s songs from 2013 to 2018, Get to Know, landed in the U.K. Top 20 in 2019. She followed it with her first official studio album, Only Honest on the Weekend, in 2021. A UK top 10 hit, the album featured Hill’s hits such as “Heaven on My Mind” with Sigala, “Better Off Without You,” and “Remember” with David Guetta.

Becky Hill was no stranger to music when she first auditioned for the then new The Voice UK in 2012. As a teenager, she had sung with the acoustic rock & soul group Shaking Trees, which created some local buzz and received several plays on BBC Radio. On The Voice UK, she made it to the semifinal before being eliminated. After 18 Hill got a record deal, in the meantime, however, her sultry, soulful, older-than-her-years voice was highly sought-after by dance artists looking for feature vocalists. Her first recorded appearance, on British drum’n’bass artist Wilkinson’s single “Afterglow,” went to number eight on the U.K. singles chart. She then appeared on Rudimental’s single “Powerless,” singing with them at several U.K. festivals in 2013, including Glastonbury.
