Check out my favorite new releases and check back with us every Friday for a new Release Radar every week showcasing our favorite new releases.
Jenny March | "California Daze"
This song is incredibly vivid. It really puts you in the room with her. With such rich lyrics, I wondered where the inspiration comes from. Jenny told me that it totally depends on the song. She told me sometimes she gets inspired at the gym listening to music, "I could be listening to music while running and hear a song that inspires me, and I'll stop and just start voice memoing melodies and writing lyrics in my notes on my phone." She says writing is also cathartic for her. When she moved to LA at age 15, she started songwriting because it was the best way for her to express what she was going through and how she felt about it. That continues to be a major inspiration for her.
"If I'm feeling emotional or stressed, I'll sit at my keyboard and start playing chords and just let all my emotions out. It's scary sometimes to open up, but I feel like I learn more about myself every time I write a song. I try to make sure I'm completely honest to myself in my music," she says.
Jenny has been working on her up and coming EP for a few years because it's changed and evolved with her as she's grown. Growing up listening to Britney and Madonna thanks to childhood dance classes and eventually getting hooked on artists like Usher and Outkast, Jenny says her music is a combination of dance pop inspired by the likes of Britney and Madonna but very "in your feels" like User. We're VERY into this song and super excited to hear the EP.
