Titled DID IT MEAN NOTHING?, the song speaks of pain and frustration but also of hope, as it encourages listeners to move on to bigger and better things and not to allow the little things in life to get them down.


The song was inspired by the artist’s own experience of being taken advantage of when trying to help someone.


“I realised that sometimes a person doesn’t want to be helped and you have to let them go to protect yourself and your mental peace,” she explains.


Written by the musician herself, this upbeat pop song is sure to get listeners moving, as it has a relatable and uplifting message and a catchy tune.


“I wrote this track during a particularly difficult time in my life,” 

says the singer. 

“It helped me think differently about things and to just keep going no matter what. I believe that listeners will like the song because it’s relatable and makes you want to dance.”


So far, Kerry B has released a 10-track-album, The Tree Singer, which documented her journey of self-discovery in ten inspiring tracks, including I’m never going back, In the wars, and Unconditional love.


Although it was well received, she feels that she is only now starting to find her true sound and is very excited about the direction in which her music is heading.


A music video of this inspiring track was directed by Gerduan Kemp Photo & Film’s Gerduan Kemp and was filmed in a single room in her home.


The video depicts the progression of life, with the artist starting off dressed in white and going through different stages of emotion, eventually transforming into a warrior and representing strength, resilience and determination.


“This video was so much fun to film,” 

says Kerry B. 

“It was a long day, but it was the most rewarding work I have ever done. I believe the genuine joy we all experienced on the day will reflect on screen.”


Born in Krugersdorp, Kerry’s family first moved to Kwazulu-Natal, then to Gauteng when she was nine years old.


Music has been the only constant in her life. However, due to being a sensitive child, she was discouraged from pursuing it. This led to her only taking music lessons – piano, vocals and theory – later in life.


She underwent formal musical training with Trevor M Smith, completing her BMus Hons in 2018 and also trained vocally with Kgololo Mogotsi, achieving Grade 7 Vocals with Merit in 2019. Finally, she completed a song writing course with Jolanda Becker in 2021.


Professionally she was discovered by chance – someone heard her singing in the trees and managed to persuade her to share her talent with the world.


Kerry launched her own part-time music tutoring business, which she had to put on hold in 2017 when her husband was transferred to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Upon returning to South Africa a year later, she was able to pursue a full-time career as music teacher.


For the artist, the highlight of her career to date – besides releasing her debut album and latest single – is following her passion and being recognised for what she can do.


Describing her style as genuinely unique, Kerry says she finds inspiration in the things that bring her joy. She admits that being able to write is also a healing practice – one that has saved her many times.


A little-known fact about Kerry is that she has synaesthesia, a neurological condition that causes people to experience things through their senses in an unusual way, for example experiencing colours as sound or a number as a position in space. In Kerry’s case, she can see music.


In 2023, the singer has plans to travel, with a wedding in Fiji in July and possible trips to the USA, Mauritius, and the UK. The artist also has two more singles scheduled for release later this year.
