King Charlz shows emo­tions on new project

The Star (Jamaica) - - Entertainment -

Florida-based singer and song­writer King Charlz re­leased his de­but al­bum, ‘Still Search­ing’, last De­cem­ber. The eight-track set fea­tures pro­duc­tion work from J Vibe, JLL, Kris Karz and DJ Blade.

“I had a great op­por­tu­nity to work with some ex­tremely tal­ented pro­duc­ers in the game right now. They have a cer­tain sound that I love and would like to keep around for a long time,” said King Charlz.

Still Search­ing was re­leased by VALHOLLA En­ter­tain­ment, a com­pany that King Charlz has been work­ing with for the past two years.

“I have been work­ing with them to per­fect my sound a lit­tle over two years now. I’m grate­ful that they al­lowed me to fig­ure my­self out when it came to my mu­sic. I was a bit con­fused as to what genre of mu­sic to pur­sue un­til I found my own sound,” King Charlz added, not­ing that the al­bum is cur­rently avail­able on all dig­i­tal plat­forms.

He also ex­plained that the ti­tle of his al­bum was in­spired by how lonely he was feel­ing at the time.

“The ti­tle of the al­bum is an ac­tual track ti­tle from the al­bum. Still Search­ing came about as a re­sult of me ex­press­ing how I was feel­ing at the time. I had just ended a toxic re­la­tion­ship not too long be­fore I wrote that song. I still had the lonely feel­ing ev­ery so of­ten though, so I was search­ing for true love at the time, so to speak,” said King Charlz, who once resided in Span­ish Town, and at­tended Kingston Col­lege be­fore mi­grat­ing to South Florida 10 years ago.

While lis­ten­ing to the al­bum that took him two years to com­plete, King Charlz said that fans can ex­pect a har­monic jour­ney through his in­ner thoughts

“I de­scribe my mu­sic as be­ing an open ex­pres­sion of my thoughts. I write about the things that I go through on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. If I see some­thing in­ter­est­ing go­ing on or if I’m feel­ing a par­tic­u­lar way, it will def­i­nitely show in my lyrics and melodies,” said the artiste, who plays sev­eral in­stru­ments, in­clud­ing the pi­ano,

gui­tar and drums.
