WATCH: Kat Meoz's Holiday Hit, "Christmas In Hollywood", Video featuring KROQ's Rodney Bingenheimer

chris daviesComment

LA garage rocker Kat Meoz (f.k.a. GRIT) is debuting a video for the song "Christmas In Hollywood," off Rodney Bingenheimer's “Santa’s Got a GTO, Vol. 2” holiday compilation (the first volume released in 20 years!).

Stream the video (which features a cameo from the legendary Bingenheimer himself) exclusively on Buzzbands here. 

Kat tells Buzzbands“I was driving back from Vegas with my friend and director, Kansas Bowling, and she got a call from Rodney, telling her that he was short one song for his Christmas compilation. … The day before, Rodney had played my song ‘LA Don’t Love You’ on his show, so I felt confident interrupting their phone call to announce that I would like a chance to write an original for the compilation. He said it would have to be done, fully mastered, in a week’s time to be considered for the vinyl release. I asked him what specifically he would want the Christmas song to be about and he said something about Hollywood.

“Two days later, I was at Seahorse Sounds Studio recording a Christmas song I had written with some of my closest music friends. Eric Weaver (Iggy Azalea, Camila) and Kyle Biane (Pacific Radio) produced the song, and Eliot Lorango and Salvatore Joseph played bass and drums respectively. My friend Emery Becker came to the studio to film behind the scenes, and I told him that I just kept seeing myself as a giant Christmas tree eating alone in a diner or playing at the beach with some girls. The finished song was approved, and I approached Kansas to help me make a video. I told her my idea and she loved it, taking it one step further, saying that I should be stalking Rodney as the Christmas tree. Rodney was on board to be in the video, offering his bad-ass GTO for production value.”

You can pick up your copy of Rodney's compilation, Santa's Got A GTO Vol. 2 on limited edition vinyl courtesy of GEARHEAD.

Kat will be playing the record release party tomorrow night in Hollywood at the La Luz de Jesus Gallery at the WACKO Soap Plant, as well as headlining her own show on 12/14 at the Hi-Hat in Los Angeles with Jenny Vee.
