Recorded in Nashville and produced by the GRAMMY® award-winning, Mark Lambert (Leon Russell, Elton John, Kacey Musgraves, Dolly Parton, Merle Haggard), "Rock Bottom" is paradoxically a song of great triumph and a testament to using life's painful experiences as building blocks for growth. The UK-bred musician captures not only her vulnerability, but her confidence and strength in this lyrical tale. "'Rock Bottom' isn't strictly a song about heartbreak," states McVeigh, "It's about understanding that sometimes you have to hit rock bottom in life to realize what you have and that it's those moments of utter despair that can shape us into the people we are. We all hit rock bottom, it's nothing to be ashamed of, if anything it's empowering to know you survived it.”
Sasha McVeigh found her roots in country early on composing her first song at the tender age of twelve. Originally from the countryside of Hereford, United Kingdom, McVeigh's drive, savvy and talent eventually launched her on a trajectory that would land her in Music City six years later. Drawing from country, pop and R&B influences such as Shania Twain, Dolly Parton, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Adele and Amy Winehouse, Sasha McVeigh has performed on stages across the globe earning her spot-on BBC radio, performing on "Under The Apple Tree" hosted by Bob Harris, embarking on a full U.S. tour and being hailed as UK Country Music Award's "Female Vocalist of the Year." Get an inside look at the woman soon to be taking over the country music scene. For more information on Sasha McVeigh and her new single "Rock Bottom" click here.

Fresh to the Canadian Americana scene, Toronto's Gillian Nicola has released her new single "Night Comes to Call" from her forthcoming album "Dried Flowers."
Recorded in Toronto and featuring her longtime band, “Night Comes to Call” is an ode to self-care and contemplation - a beautiful take on solitary joys. Based in Hamilton, Gillian took an unusual route to becoming a roots based singer-songwriter. Trained in classical voice, she spent her teen years performing in a classic rock cover band, before launching herself into alt-country when she began writing songs. Her music ranges from acoustic folk singer-songwriter to textured and electric Americana and it reflects a knowledge and appreciation of the genre’s past and present.
With nominations for the Colleen Peterson Songwriting Award, Toronto Independent Music Awards and Hamilton Music Awards, Nicola has toured Canada’s east and west coasts. In addition, she’s opened for Amelia Curran and shared the stage for the JUNO Awards’ Love Song Edition with Tom Wilson, Terra Lightfoot, Tomi Swick, and Lori Yates. Engaging in her community is just as important to Nicola as performing. When she’s not focusing on her own creative process - she’s nurturing others by teaching voice and guitar, volunteering for Girls Rock Camp Toronto, sitting on a Musician’s Committee in Hamilton.
Hear “Night Comes to Call” on all streaming platforms and on her website at https://gilliannicola.com.
