Katherine Penfold Is “Unapologetic” About Letting Her Feelings Flow EXCLUSIVE: Katherine Penfold Looks To Inspire Emotional Strength With New Video For Her Single "Unapologetic"
VANCOUVER, BC- Katherine Penfold is a West Coast Soul/R&B artist who his known for her jazz-infused, neo-soul music. She has steadily dropped a series of singles throughout 2019 in advance of the release of her debut Justin Time/Nettwerk album, Sweetest Thing, which is scheduled to come out in a couple of days (October 4th), and she gives her fans another sampling of her lush sound with her latest single and video for “Unapologetic”.
The video, a simple yet beautifully moody visual, for “Unapologetic” does a good job of capturing the intimacy of the song as Katherine sifts through her fears and doubts to find courage.
Of the song, Katherine says:
“A song with lyrics like “Unapologetic” is probably the hardest for me to release into the world. I think there are a lot of meanings people will glean from the tune, but for me it’s about my work with anxiety, depression, and feeling all my life like I need to stay small. The lyrics (written by me and my gorgeous, songwriter bff Tiggi Hawke via Skype) explore into words I’ve said out loud or thought on so many occasions. The doubt, the self-judgement, and the belief that I (we) don’t deserve to be ourselves in the world. Without Tiggi I don’t think I would have been able to say as much as the song ended up saying. I will always have the low moments, but I am slowly and surely learning to be more unapologetic in all aspects of my life.
My hope is that people listening to this song (no matter what they’re struggling with) might be able to gain some strength in hearing they’re not alone and we’re changing the world together, one moment at a time.”
