Jenn's latest album was released on Feb 7th 2020. This album is an exploration of contemporary production practices (mainly vocal), a social commentary, a 'just press record and hear what happens' approach and a means of working through shared societal issues. I am very interested in presenting simple representations of things/situations that I think about quite deeply.
For example: As Seen on TV aims to challenge gender representation and objectification in popular music culture. Take a Trip asks for more tolerance around migration. Sail is written from the perspective of a refugee who has fled, but has left loved ones behind. Your Heart is a break up song between the earth and humanity. Despite these challenging themes, it is my hope that this album brings a smile to the face of the listener. And if it makes you laugh, that's even better. Choose where to listen here.
