Editor’s Note: Charlotte, North Carolina based jazz/pop/singer-songwriter KAT HOLLAND will be releasing her EP entitled “Retrovision” on March 22nd, which also features the single “The One”. Kat recorded the EP at Village Studios in Los Angeles and she states that she draws her influences from Adele, Norah Jones, and Maroon 5.
Her single, “The One”, talks about living separately from one another after a five year relationship, and she writes her songs to where people can relate to her music. Here is Kat Holland discussing her narrative of her forthcoming EP “Retrovision”.
“I went through a period in my life right after I graduated from college that was a rather lonely but awakening experience for me. I spent a lot of time away from people I loved – some of the people that I was closest to in my life. What seemed like a difficult time was actually very self revealing.”
“With that being said, I had more time on my hands to write music. So that is what I spent all of my time doing. I submerged myself in what felt like a dream-world. The music that I created is the silver lining born from the dark cloud I felt like I was flying through. That period of isolation not only changed me as a person, but it changed the entire course of my life. I was able to create something very special and meaningful to me. Something that reflects not only past experiences that I was reminiscing about, but future experiences that I fantasized about. All in all, yes, I went through what felt like an emotionally difficult time in my life. Many people would say that is when good music is created. I guess that I learned to be grateful for the experiences I have had and the people who were there, even when they weren’t, because it all brought me to where I am now.“
