October 6 will see the release of ‘Perfect Hand’ the hotly anticipated new single from British country music singer/songwriter Nick Edwards who recently enjoyed success with his ‘1960’ EP which was delivered to listeners this June.
For those still discovering Nick Edwards, he rose to prominence in 2022 when he was dubbed ‘the first-ever’ surprise act on Britain’s Got Talent when he performed as a finalist during series 15, sparking a global reaction. His audition was all pre-planned between the show’s production team and his wife, Catherine and allowed him to rediscover his love of music.
His performance of ‘Daddy’s Little Girl’ went viral and racked up over 300M views to date. Since its official release it has garnered five Number 1s, fifteen Top 10s, and global streaming success in more than 30 countries. He is now ready to make his mark once again with ‘Perfect Hand’.
The new track is the next step into the ever-growing UK country scene and gives the musician the opportunity to put the spotlight on his artistry and love of the genre. This is a song that has the potential to break the international market and feels like just the start for Nick Edwards.
Speaking about the track, and his journey so far, Nick Edwards said: “Since the release of my EP ‘1960’, and coming straight off the back of arguably one of the biggest talent shows in the world in 2022, I think it’s been hard for the country scene to embrace me, especially as a ‘country’ artist. When I got back into songwriting again, I really just wanted to follow my heart with the music, and as a result, my style tends to balance in and out of genres.
“However, I have been pleased and overwhelmed with the support I have received so far for my music and my EP. I am a big believer that you need to believe in yourself first before you can expect anyone else to believe in you, and that’s where I’m coming from. I back myself. I have always thought that a good song is a good song, and I hope the public will enjoy this new one. I love all things folk and country. what the music stands for, the impact it can have, and generally what the scene represents, so if I can be a part of that in some way, then I’m on the right road.
“What I love about this record is the prominent fiddle, which plays the lead melody throughout. We tracked the fiddle in Nashville, Tennessee, and were so pleased with how it came out. Amelia Ransom, who took her time out to be involved in the project, is an exceptional talent, and I can’t wait to record more with her. I really wanted the song to have that bluegrass sound, and whilst it’s a prominent feature in the track, you will also hear that pop sound coming through. I dont want to get ahead myself, but I’m working on some really honest stuff with my latest writing, and I promise something special just before Christmas.
“I can’t forget one thing, though. I have good people around me and a good team. I can’t ask for more, really.”
