Cali Reed is a Las Vegas-based singer-songwriter and producer. Not too long ago, she released an appealing music video for her “Die Hard” single.
Cali Reed – “Die Hard” music video
“The video opens with a room full of clocks, symbolizing how a bad habit can trap you in a loop of wasting countless hours and days and even years. Everything is black and white. I see a glimpse of color and chase it through a door. Things seem so free and beautiful over here. I continue to follow it all the way until I fall into a tub full of color and I see things in a whole new way. I then revisit the clocks and break them all, just like breaking a habit.
The long colorful skirt in the video was designed and handmade by Dovble and me. The writing, directing, set building, filming, makeup, costume, everything in the video was done by us and Creations (Dovble’s son) and some help from family.” – Cali Reed explained
‘Die Hard’ contains a relatable narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies. The likable tune possesses vibrant instrumentation flavored with a contemporary pop-rock vibration. Furthermore, “Die Hard” serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear from Cali Reed in the near future.
“‘Die Hard’ expresses the mental and emotional distress that comes from a bad habit and the helpless efforts to kick it. For a lot of people, being with a person that’s not good for their future or wellbeing is often a bad habit of theirs, which is why the lyrics often go back to love. But we wanted to leave it somewhat open. Also, it addresses issues like drug addictions, alcoholism, etc.” – Cali Reed explained
Ask Cali Reed who should listen to her music and she will giddily reply, “Everyone!” That’s because when Reed isn’t thinking about how to solve some of the world’s biggest problems – like climate change and systemic racism – she is playfully fusing together elements of rock, EDM, and hip-hop to craft a distinctly infectious sound.
“The feeling I get from performing is a legitimate high. Whenever I’m having a hard time, I remind myself of that feeling and I keep going. The reaction I get from audiences definitely makes me want to go beyond and let the whole world hear it. When I listen to the radio, I’m always analyzing the production—cool techniques or sounds that make me want to get in the studio and try them out. I can’t imagine doing anything else. It’s this or nothing.” – Cali Reed explained
Reed grew up amidst continual change, moving from city to city and repeatedly reinventing herself. The only constant in her life, it seemed, was music. Her musical influences include Nicki Minaj, Avril Lavigne, and Missy Elliot. Also, she draws inspiration from traveling and meeting new people, as well as from Dovble R, a versatile artist who is Reed’s partner in both life and music.
