DENVER, COLORADO (October 1, 2014) – Amy Kress will release the lead single “Numb” from her debut album “Secret Music” on October 14th, 2014. The single will be digitally distributed online, at all major music retailers including iTunes, AmazonMP3, and streaming services such as Spotify and Google Play. Numb is about feeling lost and alone. It is about looking for something to make you feel whole but not knowing where to start. Kress wrote “Numb”, alongside the production duo at The Spot Studios in Lakewood, Colorado, Glenn Sawyer and Rich Veltrop.
“From my one note piano melody he [Sawyer] created the Numb you hear today. The chorus gave me chills the first time I heard it. It was big and hard-hitting and so much MORE than anything I had ever written before. I had tears in my eyes the first time I heard the finished track.” – Amy Kress, regarding the production of Numb.
The track is a sacred song of searching for the answer, wanting and needing to be made whole again. With lyrics such as, “I cease to care whom I hurt with my selfish insistence that I am empty, I am hollow” Kress, careful with her words says this is about, “not wanting people to know when I’m hurt or lonely and not wanting to hurt their feelings by declaring them inadequate to fulfill my desires.” Anyone who has ever been in an undesirable moment can relate.
Kress also plans to release an accompanying music video for the single, which will have its broadcast premiere as early as October. Colin Floom was chosen to be the director of the video after a short interview with Kress and her manager Joel Rekiel, “His enthusiasm and creative approach as well as his obvious competence won him the job without question” said Kress. The video was shot in various locations around the Denver metro area. Kress noted, “We looked at a couple of locations for the scenes and before I knew it we had a strip club, tattoo parlor, dance club and back alley all ready to go.” Floom put together an incredibly professional crew of 15, between cameramen, gaffers, grips, lighting directors, PAs, photographers and a myriad of other positions that all contributed to the feature film like production. Kress says, “The video came together to create something I cherish and I take great pride in it.”
