Kelli-Leigh is back with “Just For One Day”!
Continuing to build creatively and artistically through her own label Music Core, British singer-songwriter Kelli-Leigh has just released her brand new single “Just For One Day”. Encapsulating the essence of a truly DIY artist, the accompanying visuals were shot by Kelli-Leigh’s film student sister Sarah-Louise Davila and edited by Kelli-Leigh herself. A remix of the track, produced by Future Kings, will follow in the coming weeks.
Having gelled over playing their favourite tunes and their sonic vision for artistry, “Just For One Day” was written by Kelli-Leigh and talented upcoming producer, Hoost, in their first writing session together. “I told him that I wanted to write something that explains how sometimes you just need to take some time out, reset yourself to build your energy, and not speak to anyone.” Explains Kelli-Leigh, “Little did I know when it came to the release, the world would also be self isolating. Now when I watch the video back, it feels slightly post-apocalyptic”.
“I was feeling overwhelmed and low from a run of sessions, and felt that I had been neglecting my own artist creativity and focus. The morning of the session I had gone to the completely wrong studio in the wrong part of London and made myself 2 hours late. I’m a bit of a workaholic and sometimes I tend to go too far, so ultimately I could’ve quit and gone home, but I ended up writing this song in an easy flow, a stream of consciousness which just came to me and explained how I was feeling”.
Few emerging artists know the music industry better than Kelli-Leigh. Her astonishing career spans a total of eight years and includes over 500 million streams on Spotify, 2 UK number 1’s and 3 UK Top 10 hits. Her unmistakable vocals feature on the club anthems, “More Than Friends” (James Hype), “I Wanna Feel” (Second City) and the Billboard dance chart and GRAMMY nominated number 1 “I Got U” (Duke Dumont & Jax Jones). But it’s her work as a solo artist that Kelli-Leigh is being recognised and celebrated for now, garnering a loyal fanbase and huge support from Kiss FM, Radio 1, Virgin Radio DXB, Sirius XM & Gaydio. Since setting up her own, fully self-funded label ‘Music Core’ in 2018, the trailblazing hitmaker has released five independent singles including latest release “Cotton Clouds”.
Other singles include emotive and anthemic pop classics “Do You Want To Be Loved Like This?”, “Can’t Dance”, “Nothing More” and “Without You”, which featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday and have amassed over two million combined streams. As a solo artist, and one with a huge LGBTQ+ following, she’s performed at Brighton, Manchester and Birmingham Pride, the Boardmaster Festival, supported Fifth Harmony and played at Dubai’s huge Redfest festival. 2020 is set to be Kelli-Leigh’s biggest year yet.
