January 29, 2024 Listen to KARMACODA’s powerful new single, ‘Try At Me’

The acclaimed group KARMACODA unveiled their latest single, ‘Try At Me,’ on January 26th, 2024, through Sola Musa Music. Situated in San Francisco, USA, KARMACODA consists of Jessica Ford (vocals), Brett Crockett (aka B., vocals, and producer), and Japanese-American multi-instrumentalist Eric Matsuno (bass and various unique elements). Over the past two decades, KARMACODA has explored a diverse range of genres, evolving and honing their sound into a soulful, sophisticated blend of R&B and jazz lounge. Their music has garnered recognition from reputable online platforms such as EARMILK, CLASH Magazine, Wonderland Magazine, and NOTION Mag, among others. Additionally, their tracks have received airplay on NPR Music and Irish National radio RTÉ 2XM’s Dan Hegarty. With placements in numerous film and TV scores, the trio has earned several awards, including the Hermes Creative Awards (Platinum) for the ‘Lo-Fi Girl’ and ‘Make Me The One’ videos, the latter also securing an Unglued Music Video (Gold) and three Davey Awards for Video Entertainment, Best Use of Music, and Art Direction (all Silver).

‘Try At Me’ serves as a heartfelt yet powerful anthem of self-liberation and triumph over adversity. KARMACODA’s musical expression adopts a soulful, R&B essence infused with the sophistication of jazz lounge vibes. The listener is treated to a soothing, syncopated downtempo rhythm, minimal yet moving R&B bassline, and understated instrumental compositions adorned with the subtle touch of jazz piano. Vocalist Jessica Ford bares her soul in her passionate and impactful delivery, reminiscent of artists such as Adele, Alicia Keys, Leona Lewis, and Lana Del Ray.

Jessica divulged: “I wrote this song about a young girl I teach singing to. She had been through so much loss, anger, sadness and so many trials; more than any little girl should ever have to endure. I watched her fall into a depression, so much so, she didn’t want to sing anymore. Slowly but surely, through love, time and a lot of work, she started coming back, becoming more confident. I watched her fight for it.The song ‘Try At Me’... the words are “it’s time to try at me”, in other words, it’s time to give myself some girl power. It’s time to find myself, it’s time for me to rise, take a chance on myself, get out of this dark place, be heard, grow, and take a leap of faith, even when I feel beat up, I know I can stand up, try at me. She did, and she is. She is singing again. I couldn’t love this more. To my girl, this one’s for you.”
