Alt-pop artist, Kota Wade’s acoustic single/video, “Out of The Dark,” being released today in honor of World Mental Health Day. The song’s intimate tone and compelling message takes listeners on an emotional, uplifting journey.
Kota Wade is extremely passionate about raising attention to mental health issues worldwide and acts as an ambassador for NAMI (National Alliance of Mental Illness). She wrote “Out of the Dark” as the final chapter of her mental health story, with aspiration to deliver an elevating message that even the tiniest bit of hope can pull someone out of their darkest state. “As I’ve struggled with anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder, writing has been an outlet to share my struggles, as well as open the discussion to help bring light to a difficult subject, hoping to help others, or inspire them to seek help. Bringing this stripped down version to life has been extremely personal for me,” she explains.
Based in Los Angeles, Kota Wade is one half of the alt-pop duo Bad Wolf. She was also on NBC’s The Voice (Team Gwen) and was featured on the cover of LA WEEKLY for their “Most Interesting People of LA” edition.
