As she prepares for the release of her EP in the coming months, Los Angeles singer-songwriter CLO.FM is sharing “Wait” out today (10/7). A soulful, stripped-down ballad, “Wait” was co-written and produced by Brandon Ferguson, a Grammy award-winning producer/guitarist (H.E.R.), and follows CLO.FM’s last release “No, I” will also be included in the upcoming collection.
“Wait” is out now on all digital platforms.
The 22-year-old singer-songwriter had this to say about the song: “‘Wait’ is a song I wrote about never feeling like the timing is never right. Falling in love too fast, outgrowing situations, not fitting in…I felt hopeless when I wrote this song. I felt really stuck. I feel so vulnerable sharing this but I’m really hoping it reaches someone who feels similar. It’s so easy to give up but you gotta keep pushing forward. I hope y’all can relate to this song because it’s super raw and emotional and means a lot to me.”
Dancing, singing, songwriting, modeling, and acting have been creative outlets for CLO.FM since she was a child. She’s since found her footing in Los Angeles after years of discipline and practice and now has over two million streams on Spotify, a modeling career taking off and a growing following on socials (over 39k followers on TikTok and over 23k on Instagram). Her sound–an effortless blend of pop, soul, and R&B–emerged organically while growing up listening to Motown greats like Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, and Marvin Gaye.
Perhaps her unapologetic and fearless streak lies in her appreciation for artists like Rihanna and Lady Gaga, and her soul roots were solidified by her inspiration Amy Winehouse and her favorite band Fleetwood Mac.
