Award-Winning Country Star Jess Moskaluke Partners With Cma Global Artist Award Winner Travis Collins On ‘Leave Each Other Alone’
‘Leave Each Other Alone’ a stunning duet from platinum-selling, multi-award winner Jess Moskaluke and multiple Golden Guitar Male Artist of the Year and CMA Global Artist Award winner Travis Collins is available at radio today.
‘Leave Each Other Alone’ is the latest release from The Demos, which dropped earlier this year to critical acclaim, and features Moskaluke’s first-ever number one hit ‘Country Girls’.
“’Leave Each Other Alone’ was originally written as a solo track, but the thought always lingered in my mind that it could be really magical as a duet,” says Moskaluke. “Usually when I have these thoughts, I immediately have an artist in mind, but this time was different. I had no idea who would or could deliver this song with the passion it deserved. It wasn’t until I was introduced to Travis Collins during a promotional trip to Australia, where I heard his incredible voice and in that moment, knew without a doubt who the song had to feature. I’m so thankful Travis loved this song as much as I do – he really took it to the next level!”
Says Collins, “I met Jess Moskaluke at C2C Festival in Australia in 2019, doing a songwriter’s show together. We hit it off like old friends and I became an instant fan of her voice and songs. Fast forward a year and she sent ‘Leave Each Other Alone’ to me, asking if I’d be interested in singing with her on it. I loved this song before the first chorus even hit my ears, and knew it was something I wanted to be part of.”
An internationally celebrated artist, Jess Moskaluke continues to break barriers in the country music world with her big voice, pop-infused hooks and sonic versatility.
The first Canadian female country artist since Shania Twain to achieve CRIA Platinum single status with the hit ‘Cheap Wine and Cigarettes’, Moskaluke has since gone on to earn CRIA Gold certifications for ‘Take Me Home’, ‘Kiss Me Quiet’ and a nod for her feature on Paul Brandt’s ‘I’m An Open Road’.
She was also notably the first Canadian female country artist since 2008 to have a song in the Top 3 with ‘Drive Me Away’ and has notched another SIX Top 10 hits in addition to that including her first-ever NUMBER ONE ’Country Girls’.
The 2017 JUNO Award winner for ‘Country Album of the Year’, Moskaluke is also the 2018 CCMA Award winner for ‘Album of the Year’, a three-time consecutive CCMA ‘Female Artist of the Year’ Award winner – the first resident of Saskatchewan in the history of the awards to achieve this title – a 2017 SOCAN Award winner and recently took home the 2020 WCM Award for ‘Country Artist of the Year’.
Kicking off 2020 with ‘Country Girls’ topping the charts, Moskaluke’s follow-up track ‘Halfway Home’ landed in the Top 5 at Australian country radio, where-in 2019, she played the C2C Music Festival and took part in CMC’s ‘Songs and Stories’ series, performing six songs for a one-hour special.
Her latest single ‘Mapdot’, a personal ode to small-town pride and the place she’s proud to call home, landed in the Top 15 at Canadian country radio, and in addition to the release of The Demos in February, Moskaluke just dropped her second ‘Handpicked by Jess’ subscription box, which sold out in under 24 hours.
