Watch List: Kerri Medders Brings Summer Heat With Single 'Fall Away'
If anyone knows how to take on LA, it would be Kerri Medders, the young singer-songwriter who has managed to make it onto our N2S watch list this summer with her new single "Fall Away."
Moving from Texas to California in pursuit of the big city lights and a chance to put her faultless pop vocals to the test, Kerri has quickly developed from bubblegum teen pop-star to trendsetting alt-pop artist. Both a talented actress and singer, Medders recently released her eagerly-awaited EP Etched in November 2015.
Etched provided Kerri’s fans with a dynamic but emotionally charged Taylor Swift-esque collection of original songs, proving her maturing songwriting capabilities, ranging from the sentimental 'Morning Coffee' to the groovy 'Come On'. Of most prominence, the lyrics to single 'RunLove' echo Kerri’s own experiences and surely struck a chord with anyone that might themselves have changed for the sake of love.
The video for the single, based on the story of Tarzan and Jane, featured the mysterious Cory Saintgnue of MTV’s Teen Wolf and channelled the ‘Golden Age of Hollywood’, with Kerri modeling true 1930s glamour and fashion.
Today, Medders releases her new single "Fall Away," which marks an even bigger shift away from her teen-pop days. Her new track - which you can purchase on iTunes here - is energetic, alternative indie/pop with LA beach vibes, perfect for your summer playlist. It demonstrates Kerri’s vocal abilities and changing musical style, which definitely makes her ‘one to watch’.
When she isn’t busy recording and writing, Kerri frequents the festival scene and recently performed at the ‘Women of Substance’ showcase at The Mint LA. Whats more, her popular Instagram page showcases her edgy style and interest in fashion, complimenting her new alt-pop persona. She is also active in supporting non-profit organizations, recently participating in the JDFR Diabetes Foundation LA Walk and Rock for Research Event.
