“Rising from a city with fewer than 7,000 residents is a singer-songwriter touching the hearts of millions of listeners around the world. While there is no such thing as an overnight success, Caleb Hearn’s breakthrough is coming faster than most, with his single “Always Be” approaching 2M global streams.
The North Carolina-based artist started out as a SoundCloud rapper and then spent 2020 laser-focused on finding inspiration and honing his sound. Having released his debut album “Reflections” (containing the fan favorites “You Know” and “Distracted”) in October, Hearn created a viral video on TikTok that took things to the next level. In a story that captivated the internet (and Rolling Stone magazine, which is in the process of publishing an article about the post), Hearn was forced to re-release his song “Always Be,” turning to the social media platform Tik Tok to promote it.
In a matter of days, the re-release had eclipsed 1M global streams and topped the iTunes Singer-Songwriter charts. Since then, Hearn has gained over 30K followers on Spotify, over 585K monthly listeners and over 650K TikTok followers.
Turning his focus to the New Year, Caleb Hearn is here to prove that he is more than a one-hit wonder. With enough releases to fill this turbulent year (and then some), he expects to bring fans his Jillian Rossi-collab “Under The Weather,” and follow-up a follow up single which will see Hearn re-unite with his “Always Be” creative team.”
