Tell us your real names, country of birth, date of birth and childhood experience. 

My real name is actually Breetnay Spirz, but I had to change it to Kady Z, for obvious reasons…and I was born on New Year’s Day, in the US. I don’t recall too much of my childhood, probably cuz I never got one. 😂 Too soon?

Tell us about your music career, band name, musical background, experience and skills.

I grew up performing and singing all the old hits with my mom, but listening to pop music, being especially obsessed with Robyns last album, and some Gwen Stefani. So me and my producer and songwriting partner ventured into pop waters with my first EP release “One Million Pieces”. My first single “Beautiful Disaster” actually charted at #52 on the billboard hot 100 singles list. Then life happens, I parted ways with my former management and realized this wasn’t really what I wanted to sing/say/etc. So Tone and I embarked on a journey thru darker, earthier, deeper, juicier vocals, lyrics and melodies. I also have a real talent for spelling. If you can’t spell, lose my number.

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song. 4. Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business.

I like to think of this music as genre neutral. It’s got elements of pop, americana, blues, country. “Scarecrow” is the first song off the EP titled “Daddy Issues”. It’s a concept EP each song stands for 1 of the 5 stages of grief.  It was written to serve a greater purpose of resolving something without a resolution. To anyone who has loved and lost, it is very relatable. For me personally, my father literally chose to move on and abandon his family as he approaches 95 years old. The music video was shot and directed by Keller Moore. He is amazing and has such a fresh eye for things. It’s pretty dark, but has a sense of humor. If you can’t laugh at yourself, then what’s the point!

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director, how the song was recorded and how the music video was shot.

ToneDef produced and wrote all of the songs, he is a craftsman, he knows his shit. We recorded the song at Petti Sound Studios in Nashville with some of the greatest musicians in the world.  The music video was shot and directed by Keller Moore. He is amazing and has such a fresh eye for things. It’s pretty dark, but has a sense of humor. If you can’t laugh at yourself, then what’s the point! We jumped in a car and drove 20 miles outside of Nashville and crashed someone’s corn field. It was amazing. I was wearing these Topshop booties, and almost died a few times while using the Scarecrow to kill the cornstalks.

Tell us how long you have been in the music industry, your experience and your future goal.

I have been singing and performing since before I was born, I wasn’t given any other talent, except of course my fierce wit. The business is quite a roller coaster, as Dickens once wrote, the best of times, the worst of times, but if I can reach people with my songs and give them something to hold on to, thru tough times, then I am happy!

In the hardest times, I can put on a song, or an album, and feel safe from the world for a bit. If my fans can look to my music for that temporary relief or escape, I will be the happiest girl in the world.

Tell the kind of advice you will give to an upcoming artist.

Be 100 percent sure you are willing to give this 100 percent and 100 years of your life. It’s not for the faint of heart and to succeed you can’t just think about it, you have to go out and make it happen.

Elaborate on your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained. 12. List Radio or TV Stations that are airing your songs and blogs that have featured you as well.

Haven’t you googled me? 😉 I don’t want to sound full of myself but in terms of radio stations, the one single ‘Beautiful Disaster’ charted at #53 and it literally was played on top 40 radio all over the country. Also, I was the fresh face of the Grammy Foundation in 2013 and I have been on so many blogs since 2011 that I wouldn’t even know where to begin but CMT, American Songwriter, Digital Journal, USA Today, Pop Crush, Clevver to name a few!

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio.

The writing process has definitely evolved for me, from a strict, show up at the studio and let’s flesh it out, to texting the ideas back and forth. It’s funny to say, but both ways work!

Tell us about your happiest day and saddest day.

One of the happiest days…My dog was paralyzed for 4 months, he couldn’t move due to 2 herniated discs. I was taking him to physical therapy, doing passive range of movement exercises with him everyday, and a month ago, he got up and started walking, and has been ever since. Like nothing ever happened! One of the saddest days I can remember, was the day my father allowed his new wife to start controlling him. She has literally cut him off from all of the people closest to him, and, to say it gently, if you look up the words “ruthless gold digger” in the dictionary, or anywhere, in any language, her picture will come up.
