To paint better the whole picture some musicians think about the lyrics and the video together. That’s Jenna Andrews’ case. The Canadian singer likes this way to make her words come to life.
Jenna started when she was very little but it wasn’t easy for her to follow her passion. Nevertheless, she is making her debut album, an extension of her EP, and wants to show her music love to the world.
In a conversation with The Outsider Argentina, Jenna spoke about her beginnings, her music and the releasing of the new album.
How did you start doing music?
I learned how to play a small keyboard when I was 5 and started teaching myself how to play every song I heard. Would sing and play everyday.
How was it like leaving college to dedicate yourself to music? Which were the things you had to deal with?
It was definitely not an easy path and still isn’t but I had no choice because this was always my passion and I couldn’t see myself doing anything else.
What did you get out of that experience? Have you included it in your music?
I have been able to travel all around the world and see amazing things and meet really cool people which have definitely been a part of my music.
How can you describe your music?
Cinematic and soulful.
When you are making your music, do you think about the lyrics and video at the same time?
Yes! Always! I love to imagine what the video is to help me paint the picture while I am writing so the words come to life and I it makes the song translate more.
What can you tell us about your debut album?
It will be an extension of the EP and continue the story of kiss and run and my life and journey.
You put the songs in a specific order, what story do you want to tell?
Well that is an interesting question because the order is very intentional. I wanted to create the order to reveal the way I believe the female brain to operate. We are very interesting, and this EP can let every guy know how we really feel.
What do you want to express with your music?
Honesty. Sensuality. Confidence. Vulnerability.
Which are your projects for this year?
