PRESS RELEASE: @MeNameKAT (Kat C.H.R.) Goes For Gold

Standard

KAT CHR

Jamaican singer-songwriter, Kat C.H.R has come of age with her latest project – GOLD -written by Kat and co-produced with Andrew ‘Preggs’ Thompson who has toured the world with international recording artist Sean Paul, and whose drumming and production expertise has made him a household name throughout Jamaica’s alternative music scene.

After wrapping a music production partnership with New York based music mogul and former CEO of Roc A Fella Records, Damon Dash for his DD172 Media Collective, Kat returned to Jamaica to reconnect on her original stomping grounds and record the songs featured on GOLD.

“It’s like a coming of age project for me. My music has always been true to my life. These songs represent me to the fullest. I keep my thoughts golden, I keep my heart golden and inevitably, my art isgolden. People used to see me at shows and say oh I had no idea you were going to sound like that but they are always intrigued by my contradiction. There is a light inside me that wants to shine, GOLD is that light. It’s my labour of love,” says Kat.

The EP features four tracks - GOLD, MANGOOVER MY HEAD and TURN AROUND - each delivering her paradoxical yet authentic musical style that has gained her fans all around the world. These songs showcase not only her versatility as an artist but also why she’s known as a lyrical heavyweight.

According to Kat“this project represents growth for me as an artist, with each song I’m evoking that distinct connection between my hardcore, tomboy image, and my sensitive lyrics and smooth melodies… It all finally makes sense.”

Now armed with a wealth of experience, new management and an arsenal of new music she has signed a distribution deal for GOLD with international recording artist, Diana King’s US based record label ThinkLikeAgirL Music Inc.

“Kat C.H.R represents exactly what ThinkLikeAgirLMusic is about! Artists who have no boundaries, no limits and no fear to create across genres while being true to themselves. ThinkLikeAgirL is all about being unorthodox,” says King.

GOLD is now available on iTunes  https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/gold-ep/id796477614
