Singer/songwriter and pianist Katarra Parson is set to release the power ballad 'Loathe A Rose' November 29th on all streaming platforms. On the second anniversary of her debut album, Cocoa Voyage, Soul/R&B artist Katarra will be releasing the passionate and jazz centered single to the public. Recorded live with Andrew Gibson on drums, Tilton Yokley on bass, Joey Ferber on guitar and Jahi Eskridge on trumpet, this song mixes jazz and soul with a Latin feel. With raw vocals and keys in tow, Katarra sings a rebel cry of self-love for the underdog. From the Phoenix that rose from the ashes, to the rose that grew from concrete, Katarra presents her first live and epic single, composed and produced by herself.
“Katarra is killing it on the keys. The singer-song-writer is performing at The Sheldon, its stained glass windows dark in the September evening. Purple and pink lights project a groovy damask-like pattern behind the artist and her two-piece band. The vibe changes from mellow to moody to explosive as the artist shifts from the keyboard to piano and back again. One minute, we’re in a stream of soulful vocals and shimmering cymbals, feeling the flow; the next, we’re rocketed into orbit. “Sing, Katarra,” someone calls from the audience. “I have a lot of things I have to get off my chest,” the singer tells them, “that I have to express,” before launching into “Conversation Golden,” off her debut album Cocoa Voyage.”
Katarra returns to talk with Ray Hartmann about upcoming shows, surviving the pandemic, and a sneak peak at new exclusive originals...
