Beautiful Stranger – the scent you must follow

“Beautiful Stranger” is like a fragrance that you get in your nose and that you just have to follow. What is it that draws us to another person? Why are we starting a conversation? Is it a special smell? Or the sparkle in a smile? Or the sound of a voice? What awaits us when we follow that smell, that

Beautiful Stranger – the scent you must follow

“Beautiful Stranger” is like a fragrance that you get in your nose and that you just have to follow. What is it that draws us to another person? Why are we starting a conversation? Is it a special smell? Or the sparkle in a smile? Or the sound of a voice? What awaits us when we follow that smell, that smile, that voice? This invitation to get to know each other. Is it love? Or friendship? Or just a good story to hear on the way? Well, if we don't find out, we'll never know.

“Beautiful Stranger” describes exactly that moment when you want to know where It is leading. Sometimes we may only encounter ourselves or find a missing piece of the puzzle. Sometimes love can arise. Anyway, it's exciting.

Musically, Liberty_C. takes you on a little adventure, opened with sexy bass lines and spoken intro. Katja's singing is sensual, and lyrical saxophone lines lead you into a dreamy world. There, where all the instruments stop and you only hear Katja's voices, you feel the hesitation, the stopping, the not-knowing. For a moment time stands still. But the sound is irresistible, and carried by a wonderful band you embark on a journey...

Liberty_C. - "I Got It All" - about the wealth within (a Christmas song)

Austrian Soul singer and songwriter Katja Cruz aka Liberty_C. is releasing "I Got It All”, a grooving song about the wealth within. No Santa Claus is asked here to fulfill a wish list, no, it’s about the gifts we carry inside us.

Cruz speaks directly to us in the intro of the song and tells us about this amazing feeling of being aware that you actually have everything within you. Who knows about the inner richness and abundance is a happy person. Whoever knows himself goes his own way, authentic and upright, and fills his own form or purpose completely. “My heart, it is warm, I fill out the form [...], nothing stays the same, but I know who I am...” And if we know about “my joy, my fulfillment, my trust, my belief”... in ourselves, then we don’t need Santa Claus anymore, but perhaps we remember the light that came into the world with Jesus' birth and that we also carry within us.

“I got it all, and I stand tall”... is the actual message of the song, packed in groovy soul and R&B rhythms, recorded with Liberty_C.’s current 4-piece band. Cruz sings, composes, writes the lyrics, and accompanies herself at the piano, and you just want to let yourself fall into her voice. Markus Adam’s saxophone sound contributes significantly to the unique feature of this group, and the rhythm section consisting of Andreas Sassi Krampl on bass and Ernesto Grieshofer on drums brilliantly manages to combine danceable groove and relaxed coolness in this song.

With “I Got It All” you can let go of your Christmas stress, remember that you already have everything, and dance relaxed around the Christmas tree. Merry Christmas!

Honesty

Liberty_C. - “Honesty” – a reckoning with liars, traitors, and betrayers

Liberty_C. - “Honesty” – a reckoning with liars, traitors, and betrayers

With her latest single “Honesty” the Austrian Soul-Pop singer and songwriter Katja Cruz aka Liberty_C. shows off her angry side. With her current 4-piece band, she has brought out a highly energetic reckoning with liars, traitors, parasites, secretive people, and swindlers.

With the words “I don’t need no other liar anymore, no pretender, no cheater anymore...” Cruz opens this song, in which she expresses her contempt for fraudsters of all kinds. “It is a shame how many such creatures exist as private individuals as well as in business and politics”, says Cruz. “It’s just that liars like to gather liars around them. I guess they recognize each other and also like to occupy important positions with their peers, because they know they can be manipulated. So everyone plays their own game of power and interest and doesn’t feel so bad about it, because everyone else is just as corrupt.”

But Cruz also speaks out what we need – people who are sincere and have the courage to stand up for themselves and others, who have visions and ideas that serve this world and us humans. “I want people who stand tall with power and strength, with visions, and courage, and integrity.”

What would this world look like? “The good vision is that there are more and more sincere people, gathering more and more people of integrity around them to strengthen each other – as private individuals as well as in important positions in business, politics, and the media. Every individual can share in by living this vision and setting a good example for our children and fellow human beings. If you have that desire, let this song strengthen and inspire you.”

“I want your honesty, your sincerity, for what you do and who you are.”

Musically, Liberty_C. worked out this concern in sophisticated arrangements and contrasting parts with a lot of drive. In composition, Cruz skillfully alternates between minor in the verses and the parallel major key in pre-chorus and chorus, which harmonically illustrates the two content sides of the song. Strong and unpretentious, Cruz sings and accompanies herself at the piano. Markus Adams saxophone sound can already be described as a trademark of this band; in the 8-bar trading of the outro he and Andreas Sassi Krampl on bass shine in turning solo parts. Ernesto Grieshofer dexterously pushes the action forward with rich beats.

✨Remedy✨ is a most gentle song, it seeks to be the balm on our wounds and despair. When minds and happenings go crazy, let’s find and establish a new kind of tenderness for ourselves, for each other, and for this world – to rebuild a new society, and to recharge through close tenderness. ✨Remedy✨ is also inspired by the book "Radikale Zärtlichkeit - warum Liebe politisch ist" of German philosopher Seyda Kurt.

❤️ Many many thanks to my band for creating this beautiful sound together and to my daughter for the lovely backing vocals.❤️
