King Size Bed is an epic etherial slow-jam from multi-disciplinary artist Kaitlin Huwe. This harrowing love song features sensuous beats, and sky dancing vocal melodies.
Producer and Multi-Instrumentalist Edan Frei (Geffen/Interscope) brought a fresh electronic pop production to Huwe’s unique modern-folk sound. This track is expansively cinematic and deeply intimate, at the same time.
Brace your heart, because Huwe’s words will cut you to the core. The lyrics are literally pulled from a personal letter she wrote to a childhood friend, about her breakdown that led to a breakthrough.
“I left my lover and my family for two weeks over Christmas, to go be alone and write songs. That’s how desperate I was.” says Kaitlin.
“I had been working five jobs trying to stay afloat in Los Angeles. I was in an ugly version of survival-mode. I felt there were so many things I wanted to say and write, but I couldn’t find the time, strength, or space to create. I was stressed, exhausted, depressed, and severely burnt-out.”
I broke down. I realized I needed space, and quiet, but I couldn’t do it alone. I asked my community for support. I played a fundraising concert at my parent’s house in my hometown. My friends and family gifted me with the resources to go on a two-week Artist’s Retreat.
“My friends and mentors, Lauri and Scott Ishihara, hosted me on their property in New Mexico. They facilitated my retreat at their Artist’s Hive. I gazed at December stars, soaked in salt water tubs, and slept every night in a King Size Bed, alone. That bed served as a cocoon of transformation. I let go of so much fear around creating and being my true self. Songs just started pouring out of me.”
"On the last day of my retreat, I was writing a letter to my friend, Emma, about the entire experience. I wrote about my breakdown, finding my voice, and missing my sweetheart all at the same time. Halfway through the letter, I realized I was writing a song. I grabbed my guitar, and the whole thing flowed through in about 20 minutes.”
The song is produced and mixed by Edan Frei (Geffen/Interscope) and mastered by Grammy Award Winning Mastering Engineer, Emily Lazar at The Lodge NYC, assisted by Chris Allgood.
