Welcome back to BuzzMusic, Kay Soul. We love the deluxe sounds that you treat us to in “Strong Connection.” Could you please take us into the inspiration behind this single?
I really wanted to give my listeners a very intimate look into the desires of my heart. Whether we like to admit it or not, we all want and need to be loved and give love.
We feel that a subject of this caliber has many avenues to explore. Can we expect you to release any more songs that speak on this subject in the near future? If anyone can tour through the various lanes of connection, it’s you.
Absolutely! Strong Connection is the first single off my forthcoming concept EP entitled "Connections". I will be examining the connections we have with ourselves and others which ultimately shape our emotions as explored in my current album 'In My Mind.'
How do you find that “Strong Connection,” compares to other songs that you have previously released?
I believe Strong Connection finds me in a very confident and assured space as an artist and a woman. I think it is a continuation and elevation of other songs that I hope show listeners more of my vocal ability and my heart. Strong Connection is a natural progression in the story and adds another layer of transparency to my music.
Does the music scene in Chicago play into the sound we know and love from you? What inspirations do you take into your music?
I think my music definitely has that Chicago edge and soul, however, I am influenced by a range of artists and genres. I love the new jack swing era, Stevie Wonder, Patti LaBelle, Lauryn Hill, Boyz II Men, Kendrick Lamar, etc. I try to bring a bit of all those elements into my music. My goal is to create timeless and ageless music that heals the heart, soul, and mind.
What's next for you?
I'll be kicking off the summer with a live performance in Atlanta, GA on June 25th. More details to come on my website www.kaysoulmusic.com
