Steffany Beck – Foot Down: 13th Floor New Song Of The Day

Portland-raised, Ōtautahi-based country-pop singer and songwriter Steffany Beck has unveiled her strength-giving, gritty new single, ‘Foot Down’.

Here’s the word from Lil Sister:

This self-empowerment track is full of country-pop-rock goodness and sings about learning to know your worth and stand your ground.

Steffany Beck“As a recovering people pleaser, this song’s about drawing a line in the sand, putting your foot down and saying, I call the shots,” says Steffany. “I want ‘Foot Down’ to empower others to navigate their own path and make the world a better place by healing & loving themselves.”

This single has definitely been given star treatment. Recorded with award-winning producer Ben Edwards at the Sitting Room in Christchurch’s Lyttelton.

“Once we finished all the music for the track and was time to do the vocals, Ben and I got talking about our ancestries. I’m 1/64 Native American Indian from both the Cherokee and Apache Indian tribes and was almost named after my great-great-great-grandmother Gertrude Mantooth.

“While we were talking, I had a feeling she wanted to be present on the track, so asked Ben if we could just hit record and see what happens. This voice I didn’t know I had, came out. Like my own interpretation of an inspired chanting-like voice. We were both feeling this vibe and Ben said he had never played around with a sound like this before, so we continued to explore the voice which we both ended up absolutely loving and decided to have on the final track. For me, it really elevated the track by creating a feeling of my ancestors cheering me on and guiding me along a path to self-empowerment.”

Still to come, this self-described ‘country honey with grit’ has a ‘Foot Down’ music video out next week, and she’s also set to put her ‘foot down’ on stages to charm audiences at the upcoming Selwyn Fireworks show (4 November), The New Zealand Agricultural Show’s main stage (17 November), Christchurch Coca Cola Christmas in the Park (25 November), South Island Wine & Food Festival (2 December, alongside Kaylee Bell and The Black Seeds) and The Village Inn Sumner Single Release Show with special guests The Nick Burson Band and Miranda Easten (15 December).
