Jenny JAM is a London born, Los Angeles based soul-pop singer/songwriter whose music aims to encourage others to always believe in yourself even when times get tough. Her thought-provoking and sincere songwriting allows listeners to connect to her music, delivering an authentic message that has been captivating audiences across the globe.
With a background in musical theatre, acting and modelling, Jenny utilizes her dynamic singing talents and experiences to craft her own unique and genuine music. Inspired to write after a series of traumatic events, Jenny used writing as a form of release, wanting others to hear her story and learn from her experiences and mistakes. The overall theme of her music highlights turning negatives into positives. The musician explains, “You can always take the positive out of the worst of experiences, as there is always a lesson – no matter how big the price to pay is”.
Jenny draws from a panorama of influences ranging from jazz, soul and blues, to the classic 60’s rock bands including The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and Fleetwood Mac. Jenny reveals, “Amy Winehouse’s real and deeply honest lyrics mixed with her classic 60’s style jazz, has definitely made me feel that as an artist I can be more free to express who I really am, in the style I really want”.
Leading single ‘Morning Bottle’ narrates the singers struggle with her arrival in Los Angeles. She confides, “The message is ultimately that no matter what happens to you, who screws you over, who takes everything from you, abuses you, tries to destroy you or destroy relationships that mean everything to you; no one can take away who YOU are. Always stay true to yourself and believe in you, then you will rise out of the ashes no matter what happens”.
Produced by Ikuma Matsuda (formerly of Interscope Records), who was named by The Huffington Post as “The Japanese music producer who needs to be on your radar”, mixed by Josh Monroy (Jojo, Quincey Jones) and mastered by Grammy Award-winning Jett Galindo, ‘Morning Bottle’ has already received acclaim from industry professionals. Sonically, ‘Morning Bottle’ features deep poetic lyrics, delivered with feisty, passionate vocals. The single packs a punch through its use of pulsating percussion and resonating guitars, creating a powerful anthem for those in need.
The stunning cinematic visuals for ‘Morning Bottle’ reflect the lyrics, telling the story of some of the unreliable people Jenny first met coming to Los Angeles. Jenny expresses, “I also wanted the music video to portray my living situation; living out a suitcase at no fixed abode, drinking to get through my struggles. The desert and the open road was my escape. Being in such a beautiful deserted location gave me a sense of freedom and power”.
Jenny JAM has acted in many notable films and programs alongside renowned actors and actresses. With the hope to follow a similar path with her music, the singer continues to preach the importance of always believing in yourself, with ‘Morning Bottle’.
