Rising Canadian Country star Leah Daniels took home the Female Artist of the Year award at the CMAO Awards on Monday. She was also nominated for four other awards and has been added to the lineup for the 2016 CMT Music Fest. It was just last year we chatted with Daniels at the last year’s CMAO where she was first releasing her debut album “What it Feels Like”. Daniels will be headed to a radio tour where she will be promoting her latest hit “Your Kiss is Killing Me”. We had the opportunity to chat with Daniels once again about music and her involvement with her career.
It’s been awhile since we’ve last talked, how have you been?
Excellent, extra excellent today!
Congrats on the award, tell us how you feel?
I couldn’t feel any better to be honest, it’s just an amazing feeling. It’s always a surprise and just so grateful.
Your new single “Your Kiss is Killing Me”, the performance was amazing. I read that you mentioned it’s suppose to have a dangerous, but passionate feel to it?
Yeah well the song is all about being really into someone and knowing that maybe it’s not the best thing for you. Yes, it’s very dangerous, it’s very passionate song. I love it.
Your music video, you can totally see the passion and danger to it, did you have a lot of say in the creative process?
Yes absolutely. I worked with Tim Deegan on this one, he directed it. We’ve got a great relationship, we really collaborate on the ideas and I was very much a part of the whole process between building sets, casting people, coming up with ideas, and I love that. I love bringing a song to life visually and not just on recording.
