In a powerful testament to the resilience of the human spirit, South African rising star Kristi Lowe has released her latest single, ‘Shattering’. This powerful ballad, produced by the renowned UK-based Josh Berry and Cape Town-based Victoria Altern, delves into the universal themes of loss, grief, and the mental health struggles that often accompany them.

With its hauntingly beautiful melodies and deeply moving lyrics, ‘Shattering’ stands as a beacon of hope and inspiration for anyone grappling with feelings of loneliness and despair.

Reflecting on the inspiration behind ‘Shattering’, Kristi explains “This song embodies the difficult, yet crucial journey of confronting our deepest pain and trauma head-on. It’s a daunting task, but it’s essential for healing. For me ‘Shattering’conjures up an image of the Japanese art of Kintsugi, where broken ceramics are mended with liquid gold. This process beautifully metaphorizes the process of healing, and illustrates how embracing our vulnerabilities can ultimately forge us into stronger, more beautiful beings. The cracks become a testament to our resilience and complexity, leading us toward a sense of wholeness and self-acceptance.”

Kristi adds, “For me, ‘Shattering’ is more than just a song; it’s a personal anthem for anyone feeling overwhelmed by their struggles. It’s a reminder that facing our pain is not just necessary but transformative. As we fill our cracks with gold, we become more intricate, beautiful, and healed versions of ourselves.”

With ‘Shattering’, Kristi Lowe provides a message of hope and reassurance, and reminds listeners that their struggles do not define them and that there is profound beauty in the healing process.

Drawing inspiration from iconic figures like Etta James and Amy Winehouse, Kristi has honed her unique blend of jazz, pop, and soul over the past two years. Notably, her musical career took flight at the age of fifteen with the success of her debut single, a collaboration with Goodluck, advocating for her sister Jenna Lowe’s life-saving campaign. Despite facing profound loss following her sister’s passing, Kristi persevered and returned to music as a source of healing and expression.

Since then, she has graced both local and international stages, captivating audiences with her emotive performances and heartfelt storytelling. Her overseas performances have showcased her ability to connect with diverse audiences, solidifying her reputation as an emerging talent with a global appeal.
