Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 17, 2013
Indie label SFN Records, a division of SFN Media Group, has just released the highly energized dance single “Change The Song (Rocco Radio Mix)”, a blend of electro house and pulsating dance beats mixed with the gentle folk vocals and empowering lyrics of rising new singer-songwriter Kattail (pronounced Kat-Tail).
The remix of “Change The Song”, from an original track on Kattail’s debut album (released by SFN Records in November) is the brainchild of St. John & Fisher — founders of the cutting-edge transmedia company SFN Media Group. The exclusive digital download is now available on iTunes, Amazon, and at KattailMusic.
The striking black and white music video for “Change The Song (Rocco Radio Mix)”, directed and edited by St. John, also launched today and features Kattail and dancer/actor Mason Trueblood (currently touring in Bring It On: The Musical).

While collaborating with country singer and producer Travis Marsh on Kattail's deep, poetic folk album, St. John & Fisher started making plans to take Kattail to the dance floor.
“We thought her ethereal voice and empowering lyrics would translate well to the dance scene," said St. John. "We wanted to push the envelope and experiment with crossing genres. I’ve personally been a huge fan of EDM and remixes my whole life. It felt natural to bring Kat into the electronic space. Plus, she’s a huge fan of electronica.”
“Change The Song seemed the most logical track to start out with as a dance mix because of it’s empowering message,” added Fisher. “The lyrics are about taking charge of your life, forging a new path when the old one doesn’t work anymore. It’s very millennial, almost a New Year’s anthem.”
Fisher reached out to Australian remixer Rocco. “I’d heard some of Rocco’s previous work and loved it," said Fisher. "He's a musical prodigy with fire and passion in his soul."
After sending him the original Kattail song and explaining what they wanted, Rocco was inspired and immediately signed on. “We’re truly blessed that all the ingredients came together; Rocco was a revelation,” said St. John. "He's part of our SFN family now."
"Change The Song (Rocco Radio Mix)” is the first electronic dance remix single to come from Kattail’s album.
Described as an intoxicating, up-tempo track that pounds and plays and gets your body moving but maintains the gentle, subtle nuances that define Kattail’s folk vocals, the single will also be featured on the "Change The Song Remix EP" -- containing six different versions of the song — dropping in January 2014.
St. John and Fisher discovered Kattail last year and have been working with the 22-year-old to develop her sound and overall brand.
Kattail is scheduled to perform next at Cali Love Wine in Solvang on December 21st, and at WitzEnd on Saturday, December 28th. She then launches her Oregon tour beginning New Year's Eve, 2014. For more information, visit KattailMusic and SFN Media Group or SFN Records.
