Chris Catlin Drops Off New Single “OtherSide”

Published

on

Prodigiously releasing an intoxicating mix of Hip-Hop and R&B touched with a hint of the Caribbean since 2018, Chris Catlin returns with his latest hit titled ‘OtherSide’. Drawn out of the sorrow of his own father’s passing, ‘OtherSide’ is a retelling of the narrative of loss through the eyes of a woman on the same journey.

Born in the Cayman Islands and moving to Florida at the age of ten, Chris’s music has always featured Dance/Afrobeat elements. However on this track, his approach is far more subtle as the subject matter demands a more spiritual attitude to the songwriting process compared to the more ebullient flavor of his usual work. Inspired by his sadly departed Dad, influenced by dancehall artists such as Collie Buddz and Popcaanhe, Chris also listens to jazz, country, Hip Hop and a whole host of other genres. That is clearly evidenced in all of his music as he explores the broad canvas of the artists he has lived his life through.

That deep reflection on his personal and professional experiences allows Chris to think positively on the grieving process to deliver a song that showcases invitingly warm vocals and laidback grooves. Dripping with meaning and pointing to a path of escapism to free oneself from the grieving process, Chris turns the sad into good, the grief into hope and the pain into joy.

Crest the horizon that Chris Catlin creates and discover a world that once tried, will never be forgotten. When you find that place, you will instinctively know that you have reached the ‘OtherSide’.

KVTheWriter & Mai Lee Drops New Track, “Figure Out The Rest”

Published

on

Before she headlines Festival of Nations at Tower Grove Park next month and delivers the re-release of her debut LP ‘FRIENDZ,’ Mai Lee joins KVTheWriter on the official remix to her Reggie Son assisted track “Figure Out The Rest.” The STL posse cut finds the trio trading soulful verses about the 314 and all it’s allure over melodic guitar strums.

“I enjoyed sharing my artistry with KVtheWriter and Reggie Son. It was my first time working with them and I loved the experience. The song’s production is unique and allows each artist to stand out on the song. I felt like I gave St. Louis a bit of sexy sauce with my vocals,” say’s Lee speaking on the collaboration exclusively in a press statement.

A medley of the people and places she represents, Mai Lee transcends the boundaries of music and fashion. Growing up in Missouri, the seasoned singer has always had music on her mind and in her heart. Attending performing arts schools during her youth, she uses those experiences to create a unique genre blending sound. Known for her intoxicating and soulful vocals, Mai Lee has shared the stage with artists such as Megan Thee Stallion, 2 Chainz, Fetty Wap, Estelle, and Busta Rhymes, performing in front of an audience of 20K+ people.

While you may hear some familiar influences in her sound, Mai Lee notes her parents as her biggest inspirations for her music career. Fleeing from Vietnam in 1978 during the Vietnam War, Lee’s parents migrated through multiple refugee camps over the years before calling St. Louis their home. They opened up the first Vietnamese and Chinese Restaurant, Mai Lee Restaurant, a local staple in the city. The restaurant was built from absolutely nothing and ended up becoming the blueprint. Watching them work hard towards their dreams gave her the hustle and grit to pursue her dreams.
