Jenny caught the entertainment bug early in her childhood and attended New York’s prestigious Stagedoor Manor acting camp five years in a row.
She later landed acting roles and, ultimately, Jenny wanted to focus on her passion for music and teamed up with producer Tony Rodini [blackbear, Weezer, Terror Jr.] in 2017 for her upcoming EP.
Can you tell us more about your EP? When it will be released?
I don’t have a release date yet, but I’ll definitely let you know when I do! It’s going to be a 7 song EP and they’re really fun, female empowered songs, but also intimate. It’s pretty edgy pop.
How do you usually write the lyrics of your songs?
Most of the time I’ll start writing chords and then sing some melodies over them and write lyrics after.
If I’m in the studio with a producer normally they start making a beat and then I’ll sing melodies and write to it.
What is the best verse you ever wrote?
That’s a tough one because there’s so many and I’d be giving the whole verse away to you (haha). You’ll have to wait until my EP comes out.
What was the soundtrack to your childhood? Destiny’s Child.
How did you first get your foot into the music industry?
I didn’t really know how to jump in it at first, but luckily I have a really supportive mom who is constantly researching and she found a producer and emailed him.
My mom and I met up with him and found out he’s also from Ohio and grew up with some mutual friends of ours. It’s such a small world.
What has the journey been like up to now?
It’s been a lot of self-discovery. I’ve been working on my music for a few years now, just maturing and figuring out my sound. Now that I have it and the songs are true to who I am, I just want to keep working.
What inspired “California Daze”? I was dating this guy and was just being young, dumb and in love, and I spent all my time with him and I got really distracted and held back from what I came out here to do.
I think we’ve all had that guy or girl in our life that we drop everything for because of how great it seems to be… that’s what inspired this song.
Are you ever scared of revealing, aspects of your personal experience, to strangers through your music?
Not really, I think that part of being a good songwriter and artist is being able to be vulnerable and share those personal and sometimes uncomfortable experiences.
What are your plans for 2018?
I plan on releasing some more singles, the EP, and maybe music videos… there’s a lot that I am really excited for.
Your favorite Sunday morning record?
I’d say usually either rap or EDM music (pregame/going out).
😄However, right now I’m digging the new Zedd and Grey record called “The Middle” or any Cardi B song because she gets me pumped up and feeling confident like I can take over the world.
