INTERVIEW: Kate Klein
Hi Kate, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Hi guys, thanks for having me! Everything is super,my first single Shooting Stars is out and I’m getting a lot of love for the track .
This makes me feel so happy! Then I’ve just finished shooting the music video, interviews, photo shoots, dance routines, getting ready. I’ve been waiting for this all my life.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Shooting Stars”?
Shooting stars is Energy. I want people to feel happy, fresh and inspired. The song talks about a beautiful magic world where you can do what you want and be who you want. Sometimes I feel bored, I feel nothing is interesting, then you change your perception, you look better and see that beauty is everywhere. That magic world is around you. People, the city lights, a shooting star, music.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
oh yes. Shooting Stars has its own story. I remember i got the track from my producer . Was the night of the shooting stars, after a rainy week, I decided to go to Tower bridge and get inspired. But everything around me was a bit boring that night, I was thinking, I wish i could live in a magic world, like in a movie where everything is perfect, shiny, …’ in that moment a shooting star crossed the sky . I was speachless. I looked around and my perception changed, the way light stretches on the wet surfaces, the bridge, the tourists. I wrote the song in 5 minutes, it was like a movie scene!
Any plans to release a music video for the single?
We v’e just finished filming It. Another new life experience, I love this out of my comfort zone feeling, can t wait to see the video finished and do more and more…
How was the recording and writing process?
I wrote and recorded the demo all the same night. I have my own studio where I record the tracks and send them over to my producers. My happy place! Then I went to Kully Bhamra Birmingham studio and re-vocalled the official track. We soon realized the song was something good.
Do you tend to take a different approach when you are covering someone than when you are writing your own original material?
I will probably mention the word ‘original’ a lot. I always leave my mark in everythimg I do. Not because I try but that’s just what happens all the times. I would probably cover a song in my own way.
What role does Venice plays in your music?
A big role! Venice is a magic and infamous trap . People get captured. Italy is the land of romance and drama. It s a contradiction with the Vatican and church. All these ingrediets come out in my music.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
Yes, I am already writing a lot of new songs. My life is a like a puzzle, every piece is getting in place.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
Before summer the second single ! The name is still secret 😉
Any plans to hit the road?
Yes, we are just putting together a plan to PA the UK to death, also I have a gig in Italy in April at Gay pride, they want to use “Shooting Stars” as this years anthem
What else is happening next in Kate Klein’s world?
Definitely new songs coming, big collaborations, maybe some Hip hop/ R’n’B . I would love to do a collaboration with Will. I.Am. That would amazing! Who knows.. Think big, life is like a movie…
