Emma Kade | End Game: Exclusive Premiere

The emerging B.C. singer-songwriter meets The One in her romantic new single.

Emma Kade meets her End Game in her sweetly entrancing new country-pop single — premiering exclusively on Tinnitist.

Written by Kade and produced by Juno-nominated artist/producer Nathan Chiu (wayfie), the gently sweeping cut blends wholesome storytelling, lush vocals, urban drums and dreamy harmonies to capture the magic of the emerging Creston, B.C. artist’s own love story:

“I was good, I was all right, I had a seven-year plan
Swore I’d never let a boy come along and interrupt it
I was a serial dater, pretty hard to impress
Every Friday night I was going MIA with all of my friends
They say it happens when you least expect it
One minute I was laughing, next I’m love sick
When I wrote the book on how not to settle down
Oh, I think I met my end game
Kind of Reynolds, kind of John Wayne
Perfect mix of something salty sweet
And he’s too good for me
I think I met my last first kiss
A man I didn’t think could exist
Suddenly forever’s not so strange
Since I think I met my end game.”

“I wrote End Game about my personal experiences with love,” says Kade. “It’s a journey that can often leave you feeling disappointed and cynical, but when you meet your special person, everything you felt so discouraged about can change in an instant. This song is about those moments of excitement while falling in love and the butterflies that come with it. After singing countless brides down the aisle as a wedding singer, it’s only fitting that I wrote End Game about my husband and performed it for him at our wedding.”

A prolific multi-genre artist and songwriter since high school, Kade released her debut album Transparent in 2015. Her path to End Game has included milestones like a 2018 Kootenay Music Award for Best Pop Song (Until My Heart Quits), winning a chance to open for Canadian country star Dean Brody in 2022, and a juried selection to participate in Music BC’s ARC Artist Accelerator Program in 2023. End Game follows three previous singles from Kade, highlighted by her most recent release Let Me Go, which reached almost a million streams and found its way to listeners in more than 150 countries.

Looking ahead, Kade is leaning into her longtime love of country and bluegrass music and their rich storytelling traditions to showcase more of her own country-minded contributions down the road. As the bridge towards this next musical landscape for Kade, End Game highlights the poignant authenticity, vulnerability, and emotional truth that listeners can expect to hear. “I want End Game to remind people of how their own love stories began — and inspire others that it’s right around the corner, just as it was for me.”
