Some people catch the music bug later in life and some just have that feeling from a very young age. JNNA is one that loved music from the very beginning. She now has an EP on the cusp of being released in 2017, some great partnerships and collaborations and more. We got to talk with JNNA about all her upcoming projects and she had a lot to tell us. Check it out now.
KRISTIN: You have always had a love of music. At what point did you decide this is what you wanted to do?
JNNA: Ever since I was a little girl taking singing lessons and watching MTV, I dreamed of being a singer. It wasn’t until I graduated high school and started taking classes at Santa Monica College, that I realized singing is literally the only thing that makes me happy. I decided to finish my two years and dedicate all of my time to pursuing my dream 🙂
KRISTIN: You have done some great covers and have tweaked them to make them more “you.” How do you decide what to cover and how do these changes come to you?
JNNA: Aw thank you I really appreciate that! Well when I first started posting covers I just chose to cover songs that I love, disregarding if they were old or popular. But then, when I got more involved in the Instagram music world, I realized that every other singer was covering the current and more relevant songs that everyone was listening to. That’s when I decided to cover more popular songs. And I didn’t even know that my covers had a style! I don’t play any instruments, well I dabble with piano but I’m by no means a pro, so I just decided to only post acapella covers!
KRISTIN: Rumor has it that you are set to release your EP in 2017. What can we expect on this EP?
JNNA: 😉 Yes! I’ve already finished the first song on my EP, and I’m also about to release a cover and its accompanying music video very soon so I’m super excited about that! I have a very eclectic taste in music and I think that will be reflected in my EP.
KRISTIN: How do you feel your music has grown from when you first really starting pursuing music as a career and now this EP release?
JNNA: When I first started collaborating with other artists, my music was more in the singer/songwriter kind of style: just my voice and a guitar. But when I started working with Tyzo, my music began to develop more electronically and now it incorporates every instrument, including organic sounds.
KRISTIN: Do you have a first single coming out for this EP or is it a full release at once?
JNNA: I’m planning on releasing my cover and music video first and then the first single on my EP followed by the full EP 🙂
KRISTIN: You also collaborate with other artists and have an upcoming single with Tyzo Bloom. Anything you can tell us about that single?
JNNA: Yes I’m so excited about it 😉 it’s finally complete! Once I release my cover and its video, I have plans to shoot another video for my single and release that a month or so later!
KRISTIN: Do you have any upcoming live performances fans can be on the lookout for?
JNNA: Unfortunately, I don’t have any plans for shows right now, but once I have my EP released I will definitely plan to do some! I will also be performing with Tyzo very soon when he releases more of his own stuff 🙂
KRISTIN: If you weren’t doing music, what do you think you’d be doing?
JNNA: I love animals so I think I would most likely be a zoologist or a veterinarian…basically anything that gives me access to playing with the fur balls all day.
KRISTIN: Where can we stay up to date with all your projects and releases?
JNNA: As for now, I’ve been posting on my Facebook Page, Instagram, and SoundCloud, so those platforms are the best way to stay tuned 😉
