Hilary Roberts is back after a cracker of a year in 2019 – she’s brushing off the cobwebs of winter and getting us all ready for love this Valentine’s Day, with the bright and vivacious Good Man.
This time around, Roberts is back with a pop song celebrating loving and healthy relationships – the kind that we all deserve. It’s a call to arms for us to look at reforming the way we think about relationships. No more bad boys, ladies!
The song is empowering, motivating, with a healthy dose of fun – and did I mention? Incredibly catchy. With an exuberant melody and horns in the instrumentation, this is the sort of song we need to remind us that love can be fun and light-hearted this Valentine’s Day.
Hilary Roberts is no stranger to success. 2019 saw her place three times in the Billboard Charts, with the feel-good Back to Life, the emotionally poignant Fight to the Other Side and the infectiously catchy Christmas with You. She began singing and performing aged 10, when she was inspired by a theatre visit to see Annie, and began competing in talent shows around her area.
Her work is often influenced by her philanthropic efforts and the value she places on others’ wellbeing. Fight to the Other Side is one such song, with its lyrics meant to encourage her friend out of taking her own life in the wake of a terminal diagnosis. Whilst Good Man is significantly more light-hearted, the core message remains the same – we all deserve the best, your wellbeing is important, and get rid of anyone who tells you otherwise.
Good Man is released through Roberts’ own label, Red Songbird.
