Guitarist CHRIS HEATH Taps RICK SPRINGFIELD For Debut Single

 
Craig Heath is set to release his new single, ‘All Because of You’ early next year and it isn’t short of an all-star gathering..
 
All Because of You was co-written by Australian-born, U.S based, country music legend, Keith Urban, Heath and Monty Powell, the Australian-born country superstar’s regular collaborator, with Rick Springfield stepping in as guest vocalist.
 
Drawing on personal experiences that forced Heath to get back up again and not accept defeat, All Because of You channels the pain felt during a number of emotional challenges.
 
“All Because of You is rooted in hope and determination it’s about dusting yourself off and getting back up on your feet again,” says Heath.
 
“No matter what stage you’re at in your life, there will be times and situations that emotionally challenge you but with the right amount of self-belief and motivation, it’s possible to overcome those challenges and move forward. All Because of You is about the personal journey I encountered during some of the more difficult times in my life.”
The Melbourne-based singer-songwriter has recorded under various guides, including Velvet City and is now back working with his manager, Glenn Wheatley, whom he last worked with in 2006.
 
All Because of You is the result of Heath coming through the other side, which has made him a stronger and better artist.
 
“If someone else is going to benefit from the happiness, joy or emotion in the song I’m performing, and that does something for them, that’s a bonus for me. If I can feel the energy in return, that’s great. For me, it’s all about connecting with people through shared experiences.”
 
Heath pitched the track to US based Springfield chhart topper and Grammy winner with Jessie’s Girl in the early 1980’s and both were blown away by how well ttheir voices sounded together.
 
“I did a guide vocal fro Springfield and he love it it was an natural fit, one that didn’t need to bbe forced. The connection was there from the beginning”
 
Heath has had music in his blood since he was a youngster, soaking up melodies and harmonies of Abba, and later, the Doors the heavierr-edged sounds of Nirvana, Metallica, Guns ‘N’ Roses and Three Days Grace, followed shortly after. He’s got Jimi Hendrix and Howling Wolf in his DNA and can swing the axe with the best of them.
 
Independently driven, Heath has taken charge of his career with the launch of his own label, Global Records – All Because Of You is the first release through the label.
 
“I want people to relate to me and my experiences and I think All Because of You sums it up nicely,” adds Heath.
 
All Because of You is set for release in March 2015, with the release of the album following later in the year.
