Hey Romeo! the multiple award winning Alberta based trio have a new single to radio and it might be their strongest to date. “Pushing Up Daisies” is great track and the song is the embodiment of the expression “many a true word is spoken in jest.” As lead singer, Stacie Roper explains “Everyone has someone in their life that’s wrongedthem, but still thinks they can be taken right back, and this is a cheeky way of saying that’s just not gonna happen.”

Stacey’s vocal is crisp and clear and considering she sang it with her tongue planted firmly in her cheek, very believable.

‘Pushing Up Daisies’ is a swamp-rock, country stomp that features the tight harmonies that are a signature of Hey Romeo!, and after 10 years of touring and recording together their musical unity and easy blend is never more evident.  The song was written by Carolyn Dawn Johnson writer of “Single White Female” for Chely Wright, Brad Crisler writer of “ Some Things Never Change” for  Tim McGraw and MacKenzie Porter.

Hey Romeo! has toured extensively with such acts as Sugarland, Darius Rucker, Gord Bamford, Johnny Reid, Alan Jackson, Terri Clark and The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.

In that time Hey Romeo! have been awarded multiple CCMA Awards beginning with Top New Talent ofthe Year (2008), and Group or Duo of the Year two years running in 2011 and 2012. In 2014 their single,‘Hello Patio,’ from the I Got This EP garnered the band the Alberta Country Music Award (ACMA) for Song of the Year.

Look for big things to come from “Pushing Up Daisies” from Hey Romeo!’s upcoming EP  Ride With Me,  to be released  September 25th. 

Rob Shapiro of Hey Romeo! says “We’re really excited about this new single and EP and can’t wait to share it with you all. See you out there and don’t forget to call your local radio station and request ‘Pushing Up Daisies’. It's not a love song, it's not a truck song. it's not a beer song, it's different.We thank you all for your continued support of Hey Romeo!”
