Please introduce yourself to our readers?
Hi, I’m Kai Lamay, I’m an independent singer-songwriter from Toronto and I’m really excited to be releasing my first single Captain Bacardi. Music has always been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I love all kinds of music from r&b, pop, hip hop, house, EDM to rock, my apple playlists have a bit of everything on them.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
I write melodies and lyrics all the time based on how I feel about something I’ve experienced myself or something I saw. Sometimes it’s a concept for the lyrics first and sometimes it’s the melody. I just try to get my ideas down as quick as I can before I forget them. Inspiration can come from anywhere at any random time.
Please tell us a bit about your new single, “Captain Bacardi”?
Captain Bacardi is an upbeat summer song with an island vibe that’s all about unwinding and enjoying a carefree night.
Please tell us about the making of the video.
The music video for Captain Bacardi was directed by Hallie Tut from PoppRok and it was shot in Toronto at Cherry Beach on what felt like the coldest day in May. After all the planning and preparation the shoot day finally came and everything came together and happened soooooo fast. It was an amazing experience I am so thankful for.
