It is July 15th 2012 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
The song being featured this week is by a little band called Hedley.
Okay, Hedley may not exactly be a 'little' band anymore. Infact, they are nearing three quarters of a million fans on Facebook.
You may know lead vocalist, Jacob Hoggard, from the second season of Canadian Idol, which aired in 2004. It was there that the world got to see the talent and drive behind the [then] twenty year old from British Columbia.
Now, nearly eight years later, Jacob Hoggard [now twenty eight] has gone on to show the world just what he is capable of. And, that is why we are happy to say that Hedley's most recent single, Kiss You Inside Out, is this week's 'Song of the Week'.
Jacob Hoggard (vocals / guitar), along with Dave Rosin (guitar / backing vocals), Tommy Mac (bass / backing vocals) and Chris Crippin (drums / backing vocals) now have four studio albums and nineteen singles under their belts.
To me the growth of Hedley has been insane. I remember receiving Hedley's first self-titled album for Christmas shortly after it was released in 2005. That record went platinum, twice, as did their second and third albums, Famous Last Words and The Show Must Go. Also, their most recent release, Storms, has already gone platinum after being released only eight months ago. And, I am quite sure it will also be double platinum very soon.
The success these four guys have had is incredible. But, it just goes to show that if you are passionate and driven towards something the world will see it.
Another amazing feature about this band is the depth and stories behind Jacob Hoggard's lyrics. Personal, yet relatable, he provides fans with not only catchy tunes, but also stories that can be related to by anyone.
So, if you are not a fan already, make sure you check out Hedley and see for yourself why Kiss You Inside Out is this week's 'Song of the Week'. Also, watch their Youtube Channel closely because the official music video for this track will be released later this week.
Before the official music video is released, you can catch a stripped down version of Kiss You Inside Out, performed by Jacob Hoggard and Dave Rosin, on Hedley's Youtube Channel, here:
See you next Sunday when we announce the next 'Song of the Week' title. For now catch up on Hedley's releases and stay tuned for their new official music video, for Kiss You Inside Out, being released mid this week.
