Constanza Herrero Releases New Single 'Packing Up'

Constanza Herrero is an Australian/Chilean singer-songwriter. Before moving to Australia to study at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, Constanza found success as a teenager in Chile. She released solo music under the artist name, Kota, which then saw her join MTV Latin America award winning band, Sixpack, and star in the Nickelodeon TV series, Karkú.

In November 2017, Constanza launched her self-titled EP with a sold out concert at the prestigious music venue The Fly By Night, in Fremantle, WA. The EP was recorded and produced in Australia by WAM Award winner James Newhouse. Packing up is the lead single from the EP, a pop tune influenced by Latin American sounds.

Constanza is about to launch the music video for Packing Up. The track is about finding hope and move forward from adverse circumstances. “In order to move forward you need to face your circumstances, otherwise you will only be running away. It’s not about forgetting your past, but learning from it.” says Constanza. Through this song, Constanza wants to encourage others in whatever challenges they’re facing. The music video portrays different situations, from deciding to leave an abusive relationship to deal with the loss of someone you love.

The music video for Packing Up was filmed in Chile by Usual Producciones. Constanza found that filming in Chile was very special as one her challenges in life has been to leave her homeland and immigrate to Australia.

As a songwriter, Constanza brings a unique fresh style to the music scene, a multicultural and influenced sound that separates her from other singer-songwriters. Meaningful lyrics that show her passion about speaking out on society’s issues combine with a crossover of styles from Pop to folk and jazz to latin music.

Having previously played sold out shows at numerous venues across Perth, like The Ellington Jazz Club, Constanza is no stranger to the Perth music scene and shows that her music is loved by audiences across genres. She’s now planning to play other shows across Australia and will hopefully bring her music to the US.
