Today, EILE is delighted to feature Los Angeles based, Kota Wade, a singer/songwriter/social media Influencer/AWAL artist, who appeared on NBC’s The Voice, Team Gwen Stefani, Season 9.
Kota has recently released a stunning reimagined rendition of Out of the Dark, the title track from her 2018 EP. Taking an acoustic approach, the track features intimate vocals and poignant layered guitar lines. The song’s intimate tone and compelling message takes listeners on an emotional, uplifting journey. The single came out on October 10, World Mental Health Day, an important day that aims to raise awareness around mental health issues. Kota is extremely passionate about raising attention for mental health issues worldwide, and acts as an ambassador for NAMI (National Alliance of Mental Illness).
“As I’ve struggled with anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder, writing has been an outlet to share my struggles, as well as open the discussion to help bring light to a difficult subject, hoping to help others, or inspire them to seek help. Bringing this stripped down version to life has been extremely personal for me,” she explains.
