PITTSBURGH, PA, USA, June 8, 2024 / — Celebrated Pittsburgh-based singer-songwriter Cherylann Hawk is thrilled to announce the release of her new single, “Love & Gratitude,” on June 8, 2024. This uplifting track will be available on SunHawk Records and is set to resonate deeply with fans old and new.

Over the past 25 years, Cherylann Hawk has become a beloved fixture in Pittsburgh’s music scene. She has released three full-length CDs and several singles, including three home-recorded tracks from her own SunHawk Studio. Known for her rich, emotive voice and heartfelt lyrics, Cherylann has collaborated with numerous local, regional, and international artists, enriching the music community with her versatile talent.

“Love & Gratitude” is a song born from a place of deep reflection and positivity. Cherylann shares, “I received a call some time ago from a friend who had moved to Nashville to work for a record company. He had taken on a new female country artist and needed more songs for her to release. This call happened during a time when I had begun to practice finding gratitude in everything I encountered, so I decided to write a country song. The Beatles said ‘All You Need is Love,’ and I decided to add a little gratitude to that statement.” Though the country artist ultimately moved on from Nashville, Cherylann was left with a song that has since become her personal mantra.

The single features Cherylann on acoustic guitar and vocals, Bob Zigerelli on lead acoustic guitars, Charlie McVay on pedal steel guitar, Joey Granati on bass and keys, and Tracey Whorton on drums and percussion. “Love & Gratitude” was recorded and mixed with David Granati at Maplewood Studio/Dave World Productions and mastered by Brian Foraker.
