FRESH: ‘Guilty’ – Kane

Kane debuts with “Guilty”!

Kane Cooper (KANE) sings vocals, plays guitar and keyboard. This has helped him to realise a dream and release his debut single, “Guilty”. The song was recorded in Kane’s studio at home. He produced the majority of it but used a friend to check up on what he had done, who made a few tweaks!

We spoke to Kane recently about the song and this is what he told us:
“‘Guilty’ was basically just about a time I was being messed about by a girl! (I know! How original ahaha). I had only really just started playing the guitar at the time and I was just messing about with chord sequences like I do in all my spare time aha!! The lyrics then kind of just came to me and I decided to make the song build up which is why it starts quite plain and slow at the beginning”.

Kane got properly back into writing his own music once he returned from Australia, at his house in Leicester. He has played in concerts of up to 1,000 people at school and such events but since he left school, in his gap year and in his spare time, Kane just thought about the idea of writing his own original music and performing that which he hopes to do next year in Nottingham. Kane adds: “I enjoy a karaoke night or two after a few drinks as people who didn’t know I sang tend to be pleasantly surprised!”.

Kane says that Sam Fender’s Hypersonic Missiles album is his most listened to album of 2019, about 10 times over despite only being released in September, he says! He is a massive fan of Sam’s and although his own music isn’t as alternative as his, listening to it really encouraged Kane to write his own music. Kane also tells us of “Guilty”: “I would often listen to the song that much that I had to have a few drinks just to get a different view on it. I mean ‘Guilty’ may be ‘written all over you’ but I’d prefer it if it was written all over your streaming service!”.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
