Kristen Merritt Begins The New Year With Her Latest Single ‘Ending’ | Music News


Neo-soul singer and songwriter Kristen Merritt has released her latest single “Ending”, out just some days ago and produced by Mixtape Seoul.


Merritt was born in Detroit and began her music career while she was in college in Williamsburg, playing in a five-piece band called The Masaharu Effect. They performed across Virginia and North Carolina and had their last show together as an opening group for Daughtry, during 2018’s Fort Eustis 100th Year Anniversary concert in Fort Eustis, Virginia.


The young soul artist is now based in Brooklyn, where she is exploring neo-soul and R&B sounds, having Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, Daniel Caesar, H.E.R, and Moses Sumney among her main models.


“Ending” is about what words “I love you” really mean and how love is shown rather than told. Merritt’s latest single aims to be a reminder that “if you are looking too hard for love, you will easily miss it”, as she said, revealing a vulnerable truth that many people can acknowledge.


Despite its title, this simple but soulful track wants to be a fresh beginning of the new year, with its strong lyrics, flowing rhythm and smooth vocals washing away the pain of the past.
