So Much Light is the alias of Damien Verrett, probably one of the most promising young electronic talents coming out of Sacramento among the ranks of KEV and The Philharmonik and cats like that. “Bad News” is his brand new single featuring VIVIAN, and it’s gorgeous. The downtempo beat, airy synths, and spacey guitars set the tone for So Much Light and VIVIAN to deliver some powerful vocals about moving forward positively after a relationship comes to an end.

So Much Light says of the tune…

“I started writing this song towards the end of a relationship. I was looking for break up songs and wishing I could find something to listen to that was more reflective of my feelings. I was sad and confused, but I also understood that going forward I still wanted this person in my life and that in order to make that happen I needed to end up in a place of understanding rather than bitterness. Getting VIVIAN on the track was a no-brainer. I feel like she views the world through a clearer lens than mine and I needed her perspective to help make the track feel balanced.”

VIVIAN’s perspective definitely offers balance, with her saying…

“To me, it’s about being in that in-between space with someone you love… Maybe the relationship is ending but you aren’t ready to let go of it yet, so confusion and chaos are wrestling there. Love relationships are reflectors too, so it’s also about confronting the dark parts within yourself that come to face you in the mirror when you are intimate with another person. We want to find common understanding again, or at least some sort of resolution from being in limbo.”

It’s a beautiful thing what these two artists have done together, even if the subject matter can be considered sad. It’s all part of this process we all go through with relationships when we genuinely want what’s best for each other. And at least now, when we’re going through it, we’ve got a song to reflect these feelings more accurately.

I grew up in Sacramento in a time where there was no young entertainment company like HOF to look up to. I met Tony in LA while I was managing LBCK in Long Beach. I kind of knew Damian from middle school. And I didn't know Byron even though we went to the same middle school. But when we first started partying together in 2011, it just made sense for me...someone who's passionate about the business side of music...to align with them...who're passionate about the business side of events. I believe what I'm doing here...running the site and the social media and the artist management/publicity and the label...is creating a means to better spotlight and support the emerging artists we truly believe in. They say no one's ever "made it" out of Sacramento. It's my ultimate mission to change that. As our boy Marcus says, "We're bringing Sacramento to The World...and we're bringing The World to Sacramento."
