Kara Conway releases a new single, ‘This Life’.
It’s the title track of her current EP, which is also available now, as a download or via the usual streaming suspects.
It follows her most recent single, the climate change-themed ‘Bold‘, which like the EP’s other tracks was produced by Derek O’Neill (keyboard player for King Creosote) at Chem19 Studios in Blantyre.
Conway explains the inspiration behind the latest track to be taken from her debut release” “I began writing the track ‘This Life’ on New Year’s Eve 2018 and finished it just after the bells. At the time I was on complete vocal rest, having had laryngitis for over a month, and was beginning to worry that I wouldn’t be able to sing again.
“So, while all my friends were out partying, I stayed at home and watched a programme on the singer-TV presenter Jane McDonald. Up to that point I was aware of who Jane McDonald was, but didn’t know much about her backstory and how she’d overcome so many setbacks to get to where she was in her career.
“I was so inspired by her that I wrote the song ‘This Life’.
“The track is about my own love of music,” she adds, “and reflects the madness and excitement of being out and about singing, and trying to establish a career in music. These feelings were even more heightened than usual at that time because I had completely lost my voice and was unable to get out there and just go for it.”
Previously, the singer-songwriter has appeared at the Danny Kyle Open Stage at Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall as part of Celtic Connections, at the Killin Music Festival and at Scottish singer-songwriter Dougie Maclean’s annual Perthshire Amber Festival.
She also presents on Youth Music’s podcast ‘The Higher Frequency’ as well as hosting an hour-long, Sunday morning show on Celtic Music Radio.
