KATE CLARK
TODAY RELEASES SINGLE
“WONDERWALL”
LISTEN TO THE EMERGING COUNTRY ARTIST’S
STRIKING COVER OF THE OASIS CLASSIC HERE

AND WATCH THE VISUALIZER HERE

For some, covering such a famous song could seem daunting or challenging, but ‘Wonderwall’ was anything but that for me–it was the best therapy one could find,” says emerging country artist KATE CLARK about her striking cover of Oasis’ classic 1995 song “Wonderwall.” Today (3/26), the Nashville-based/Austin-raised singer/songwriter has released it as the follow-up to “No Halo,” her debut single that arrived last month. Listen to “Wonderwall” here and watch the visualizer here.

“Wonderwall,” like “No Halo,” was produced by David Lyndon Huff, who did the same honors for the Doobie Brothers’ multi-artist tribute album Southbound, that featured Zac Brown Band and Vince Gill, and who’s the younger brother of renowned Nashville producer Dann Huff.

“As a songwriter, I feel like I’m always searching for words and melody that help me feel whatever it is I’m dealing with or going through in my personal life,” says KATE. “Lyrics have the power of being almost a release valve when they’re so perfectly matched to a melody. An infamous 3am wakeup call led me to listening to ‘Wonderwall’ on my nightly journey down a rabbit hole.  Tornadoes had just decimated Nashville, a half block away from my first place I lived when I moved to town. The pandemic was closing in on changing the world for who knows how long, and I was a new mom to a beautiful baby boy. I found myself retreating into my mind and having long conversations with myself trying to find a way, any way, to slow down my world. I had heard ‘Wonderwall’ before when I was younger and I wasn’t in a safe, creative environment to really be able to feel it the way I do now. To me, ‘Wonderwall’ carries so many different meanings. A friend, a lover, yourself, perhaps your younger self–all hopeful options to potentially reach out and save you from whatever it is you need saving from. But, are we ever really saved? I see ‘Wonderwall’ almost as a frame that outlines life’s major lessons. Love, hope, seeking truth, and the inevitable let down.”

Elaborating on that night she listened to “Wonderwall,” KATE says, “The calm I’d craved all day poured over the house and the candles were lit. Another thunderstorm had passed, my son was tucked in with his crew of stuffed animals, Just myself and a microphone–and I was alive. No one is ever going to hand you what you need most. For me the ‘Wonderwall’ is knowing your true self, and the true nature of humankind.”

Last month’s single “No Halo” announced the arrival of an artist who’s been gifted with an expressive, elastic voice matched with her sharp yet vulnerable sense of songwriting. Listen to the song here and watch the lyric video here. With KATE’s introspective lyrics about maintaining a strong self-identity in the face of life’s obstacles and a melodically bright, uplifting chorus, the song is “a melting pot of old-school and new-school,” says KATE. With “No Halo,” KATE aims straight for the heart with lyrics such as “It ain’t easy/ Nothing’s ever fair/You, me and God know/You can still be good with no halo.”

KATE plans to keep the excitement building throughout 2021; the singer and songwriter will release a series of singles via her label Kate Clark Music distributed by BMD (Brooklyn Music Distribution), a song per month, alternating between original tracks and striking reinterpretations of songs that have inspired her.

KATE CLARK—Emerging Country Artist—Today Releases Debut Single And Lyric Video “No Halo”

KATE CLARK—
EMERGING COUNTRY ARTIST—
RELEASES DEBUT SINGLE AND LYRIC VIDEO
“NO HALO”
TODAY, FEBRUARY 26
LISTEN TO THE SONG HERE

AND WATCH THE LYRIC VIDEO HERE

“No Halo,” the debut single and lyric video released today (February 26) by emerging country artist KATE CLARK, announces the arrival of a fresh talent who’s been gifted with an expressive, elastic voice matched with her sharp yet vulnerable sense of songwriting. With KATE’s introspective lyrics about maintaining a strong self-identity in the face of life’s obstacles and a melodically bright, uplifting chorus, the song is “a melting pot of old-school and new-school,” says the Nashville-based and Austin-born-and-raised artist. “No Halo” was co-written and produced by David Lyndon Huff, whose extensive Nashville credits include producing the Doobie Brothers’ multi-artist tribute album Southbound with such artists as the Zac Brown Band and Vince Gill, and who is the younger brother of renowned producer Dann Huff. Listen to the song here and watch the lyric video here.

KATE plans to keep the excitement building throughout 2021; the singer and songwriter will release a series of singles, a song per month, alternating between original tracks and striking reinterpretations of songs by Oasis (“Wonderwall”), the Doobie Brothers (“Black Water”), and Justin Timberlake (“Drink You Away”).

With “No Halo,” KATE aims straight for the heart with lyrics such as “It ain’t easy/ Nothing’s ever fair/You, me and God know/You can still be good with no halo.”

“Writing ‘No Halo’ was both unfortunately and fortunately a very easy topic for me to write about,” reveals KATE. “Perfection. Why do we seek perfection? We know it’s unattainable, but even knowing this we put ourselves down. For girls and women especially, we’re conditioned from a young age to be ‘good’…you know, ‘be a good girl.’ I was far from perfect. I endured profound pain that over the years turned into profound joy and freedom. It’s amazing what real self-acceptance can do for the human spirit. The ‘Halo’ to me represented perfection, so the title ‘No Halo’ just made sense. I hope when people hear this song it can be another reminder, in the midst of commerce selling perfection, to embrace your ‘flaws,” learn from your failures, and most importantly allow yourself to grow. You can still and always will be good if you can love yourself just as you are, right where you are, even if you’ve misplaced your ‘halo’ or you never had one to begin with.”
