Give it a listen and discover for yourself why Mrs. X’s patented “pop à la carte” style makes her stand out from all the rest. It is a must hear for anyone who calls themselves a lover of pop.
The emotions expressed on this track are as intense as the driving rhythms of the song, itself. It’s a melancholy story about true love, fears, doubts, betrayal and ultimately forgiveness.
“80 Miles Away” is truly an international collaboration and an effort of love. The cast of incredibly talented contributors is insane. Sefi Carmel -internationally renowned London producer, Jon Hockings -London guitar stylist, Kirsten Rea – background vocalist, M. Dwizzy- Jamaican born rapper.
“So many people to thank, but for me, everything begins and ends with Sefi,” says Mrs. X. “Working with him was an enlightening experience. I learned so much from watching him weave his magic. He is truly a wizard at telling a story with sound. Our collaboration was exhilarating.”
Mr. Carmel enjoyed producing “80 Miles Away.” “I’ve worked with everyone from B.B. King to Phil Collins to David Bowie to Birdy. It’s always invigorating to work with an artist who brings something fresh to a particular genre and makes it their own, which is what Mrs. X’s ‘pop à la carte’ is doing for pop.”
Kirsten Rea is a highly sought after, skilled and gifted artist. “The vocal recordings with Kirsten were among the most enthralling experiences of my musical career,” says Mrs. X.
M. Dwizzy’s rap is an essential contribution to “80 Miles Away,” bringing to life the voice of the man who was betrayed. It is this fusion of ‘pop à la carte’ and rap that defines the freshness of this intensely creative song.
