Hoyt’s New Debut Single “Gonna Need My Love”

Guitarist Keith Wallen Is Out Now On All Digital Platforms
Wyoming County-native artist and LGBTQ+ advocate Ddendyl Hoyt, who has received critical acclaim for her authentic mix of rock, pop, Americana and blues, will perform two hometown shows Friday June 11 and Saturday, June 12 to promote the recent release of her new single “Gonna Need My Love,” which was written exclusively for her by Breaking Benjamin Guitarist Keith Wallen.
The esteemed performer will kick off the Arts Council for Wyoming County 2021 Concert Series with her band on Friday at Perry Public Beach (3750 Walker Road, Perry, NY) starting at 7 PM. Ticket package options are available for purchase through their website at www. artswyco.org. Space is limited and social distancing and COVID safety protocols will be observed.
Saturday, Hoyt returns with a special headlining performance for Pride Month at the 2021 Pride Fest presented by Jam At The Ridge and GLOW OUT (8101 Conlon Road, LeRoy, NY. VIP party starts at 3 PM; gates open at 4 PM. Tickets are available at https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4913666.
Hoyt’s “Gonna Need My Love” was released May 28, 2021 on all DSPs and was produced and engineered by Shawn McGhee (Drowning Pool). The sultry, edgy, and bluesy rock-driven pop song showcases Hoyt’s signature, soulful voice and elegant piano playing, while McGhee – who also lent his guitar and bass skills – and drummer Charlie Nicholson drive the tune’s melodic, sing-songsy choruses.
“As my first official single, ‘Gonna Need My Love’ truly represents who I am as an artist,” said Hoyt. “When Keith first approached me about writing a song for me, I was beyond humbled. He said he was a fan of mine and wanted to create something that really highlighted my voice. The entire project was taken to a whole new level when Shawn wanted to produce it. I am thrilled with the way it turned out.”
Hoyt has received several awards for her work, including “Artist of the Year” by Batavia Daily News in Western New York and being named the “Nash Next 2017 New York Winner.” In addition to her music career, Hoyt is an advocate for the LGBTQ+ community and serves as an ambassador for the nonprofit Free2Luv, taking a stand against bullying and advocating for their rights.
While “Gonna Need My Love” is Hoyt’s first official single, she is certainly no stranger to performing. Throughout her career, she has shared the stage with such artists as Hunter Hayes, Scotty McCreery, Sebastian Mikael, Elle Varner, and opened along-side colleagues for Justin Moore following her appearances on Season 6 of NBC’s “The Voice.”
