Sterling Fox Releases New Video “Freak Caroline”

Sterling Fox Releases New Video “Freak Caroline”

sterling-fox-2015

New York-based recording artist and songwriter Sterling Fox has released the music video for “Freak Caroline.” The video premiered exclusively on The Wild Honey Pie and now is available on Fox’s official YouTube.

The video “begins as a chic, Bond-influenced series of shots,” says Fox, “that eventually deteriorates into an all-out fisheye filled 90s band performance.” The Wild Honey Pie points out that the video is “visually enticing and chock-full of vibrant colors, psychedelic shots and hypnotic movements.” The unique style and creative approach is Fox’s way of kicking it “back to a bygone era of just having fun and playing in a band,” citing “bratty rock and pop punk of yore” as visual influences.

Prior to releasing his own music, Sterling was an accomplished ghostwriter, having worked with Lana Del Rey, Adam Levine, Avicii, Madonna and others. The records he has worked on have sold more than 12 million copies.

With “Freak Caroline,” however, Sterling is no longer writing for the celebrity artists, but rather has ventured into the unfamiliar territory of writing about them. The song is “loosely based on people I’ve worked with or written for,” Sterling told Interview Magazine. It is “a reaction to their narcissism” and inability to have “anything real or meaningful to say about the world.” You can stream the single on Fox’s official Soundcloud.

Lena Fayre’s Highly Anticipated Self-Titled EP Hits Stores Nationwide Today!

Lena Fayre’s Highly Anticipated Self-Titled EP Hits Stores Nationwide Today!

Available Now!

Available Now!

Lena Fayre’s EP is hitting stores worldwide on June 10 and consists of five original tracks, including her previously released debut single, “Belong to You.” Fayre’s EP serves as an introduction to this natural wonder of the music world, but it will clearly be remembered as much, much more. It is an arresting display of greatness that no tuned ear can deny, and heralds the arrival of an artist destined to turn the water of pop music into wine.

“Belong to You,” is a beautifully written ballad of passion, pain, and triumphant defiance. The EP’s other four tracks also showcase incredible writing skills. Fayre herself has a hand in all five songs, and longtime Fayre collaborator, the gifted writer, producer and pianist, Kosta Lois is credited on four of them: “Jukebox Love,” “Love Burning Alive,” “Fate,” and “Belong To You.”

“Jukebox Love,” co-written by Jaden Michaels, is a rolling, amorous pop-rock song. “Love Burning Alive,” co-written by Jenn Decilveo, utilizes electronic instrumentation to deliver a cutting-edge, heavy-hitting dance number. “Fate,” is one of the EP’s most aggressive tracks in its shadowy use of the minor scale, that pumps to a pounding back beat.

The fifth track,“Silver,” is also a striking standout. Co-written by world renowned producer, instrumentalist and songwriter, Brian Howes (of the band Closure and founder of Van Howes Studios) and the multi-talented Jason “JVP” Van Poederooyen (engineer, programmer and co-founder of Van Howes Studios), “Silver” is a juggernaut of unstoppable groove and infectiousness.

Although she is just 16, Fayre’s image projects maturity, intelligence, and poise. She dresses like a lady, walks like a woman, and speaks straight from her heart and mind whenever she sings a lyric.

There are elements of Madonna in her orchestration and delivery, true, qualities of Alicia Keys in her singing, yes, but in the end one must grant that this dazzlingly elegant, yet unpretentious style is her own. To hear such freshness and beauty in pop music is more than inspiring. It communicates goodness. It heals.
