Q&A: Nashville-based Kady Z Releases Video for “Scarecrow”

The first thing you need to know about Kady Z is that the Z is silent. Nashville-based Country singer/songwriter Kady Z is a whole lot of amazing things bundled into one tiny and iridescently layered package and says that Nashville is just like the T.V. show:

“[it’s] just a constant party, people are out at all hours just doing their thing. It really is like people think it is. When you meet someone and you like them, you say, we should write sometime, then you hold hands, kiss and skip into the sunset.”

Girl Gang Music was luck to snag a quick Q&A with Kady around the recent release of her new single, “Scarecrow”. Hear it below!

 

GGM: What was the creative/production process behind “Scarecrow”? What does it mean to you?

The song is about the destruction and breakdown of a really deep and meaningful relationship in my life. Scarecrow is the first of 5 songs off the EP ‘Daddy Issues’ and is meant to express denial, or the first stage of the grieving process. When we went in to start writing, we looked at it as more of a canvas, what do we want this song to look like, and the rest kind of just flowed after that. The first is always the trickiest I feel.

GGM: How has being a woman in music impacted you?

I have had “the” experience with a man in a power position, that I trusted, tell me that he would do anything I wanted if I followed him to his hotel room. I was taken aback, and left pretty quickly after that, went home and sat on my bathroom floor and cried my eyes out. It feels pretty awful, and for a week after I was pretty upset. As women, just because we want to show some skin or whatever, doesn’t mean we are asking to be treated as pieces of meat. I am glad that so many women are finally standing up for themselves and coming together to protect each other. We need more of that. And, on the other side of that, we need the good men behind us as well.
