10. Hey Monday – Hold On Tight
Before Cassadee Pope won the third season of The Voice U.S., she was the lead singer of pop rock band Hey Monday. Signed to Decaydance Records, the band only released one album. Hold On Tight was a critically acclaimed release, with famed producers Sam Hollander and Dave Katz at the helm. Singles from the record included ‘Homecoming‘, which was co-written by The Academy Is… singer William Beckett, and ‘How You Love Me Now‘, which the accompanying music video for was a staple on Kerrang! TV at the time.
