‘Unfinished Business’ is the latest single from Katy Hurt: a powerful, personal song that speaks to many. ‘Unfinished Business’ is the 4th single taken from the rising country singer-songwriter’s latest highly-regarded, award-nominated, 5-track EP of the same name.
‘Unfinished Business’ grew from deep personal roots. Inspiration for the song was sparked when Katy lost a member of her family then kindled as she reflected upon people in her life with whom she wanted more time, whether they were family, friends or other relationships.
Katy co-wrote the song with Gab Zsapka and both realised that the need it expressed by was a universal feeling: that there are people in everyone’s life that they want more contact, time and shared experience with.
“This song was the first time I ever allowed myself to be truly honest in my writing,” admits Katy, “When Gab and I sat down it was almost like the song flowed out. There are people I love that I feel are ‘Unfinished Business’, that I want to spend more time with, but I also want my audience to know that without their support I wouldn’t be able to do what I love.
“The more I’ve played it live,” she adds, “the more I realised that it also came from the musician side of me too. Every time we play it live, it becomes clearer to me that the audience is my unfinished business: they are the ones I want to see again and keeping bringing on my journey as I grow as an artist. I always start the song by thanking them for their support and it’s become a really important part of my set. “
The song was recorded in Winnipeg, Canada, at Stereobus Studios last January as a part of Katy’s ‘Unfinished Business’ EP. It was produced by Juno Award-Winning Producer Murray Pulver (previously a member of the Crash Test Dummies) and mixed by Paul Yee (who also engineered the record and owns Stereobus where the recording took place).
