TWIST recently chatted with singer Kady Z! She spilled about her music and what's it's like to follow in the footsteps of her singer mom! Check out our exclusive convo below!
TWIST: How would you describe your sound? Kady Z: I would describe it as fun and upbeat. It's very dance-y. There's some urban influence in it, but the lyrics are also very meaningful.
TWIST: Can you tell us about your single "Crashing Down?" KZ: It's about keeping a brave front in the face of your heart and your soul dying. I think everyone can definitely relate to that. You don't want to show a certain somebody that you're really having a hard time. You want them to think, "She's got it all under control!"
TWIST: Do you have a favorite song on your EP "One Million Pieces"? KZ: "Save Me from Yourself," which is the last song that I co-wrote with Tone Def. It's more of a romantic song, more so than the other songs. I think "Save Me from Yourself" is the most sweet. It's always fun to sing live also.
TWIST: Your mother was also a singer; how did that motivate you to pursue music? KZ: She inspired me to sing. I used to watch her when I was growing up and I was always in awe, because she was so good and she could just perform the song and deliver it so well. It always inspired me to want to do the same and touch people like she did.
TWIST: Did she offer any advice to you when you started your career? KZ: She really didn't want me to do it because it's such a hard business, but that made me want to do it even more. When parents say, "Don't do it," you want to do it. So in a way she gave me great advice because it propelled me towards it.
TWIST: What would you say is the highlight of your career so far? KZ: I was the fresh face of the Grammy Foundation this year and I got to go to the Grammys and walk the red carpet. It was an amazing experience. I was so honored to be that.
TWIST: What's next for you? KZ: I'm releasing a new music video for "Crashing Down" and getting ready to release a second single in a couple of months. The debut full album will be released in July, and it's called "Ordinary Girl." We're going on an acoustic tour this summer and we're also going back to the UK. We were just there for fashion week, and it was awesome! You can find everything at Kadyzmusic.com, twitter, Facebook, Instagram all that awesome stuff.
