Listen to “Miss Somebody” HERE!
Introducing Canadian-born, Brooklyn-based indie dream/pop artist Jenny Kern. With a magnetic vocal style and emotively piercing lyricism, Kern’s music has been amassing plenty of attention around the globe. Having originally started as a Page at NBC, Kern then went on to work for acclaimed filmmakers Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig, before eventually becoming a producer in the film and television industry. In 2018 Kern decided to take a leap of faith and pursue her passion for music full time.
Drawing on personal experiences, her songs unfold through a confessional-style delivery revealing the strength that can only come through vulnerability. Exploring what it means to be human and everything from anxiety, depression, getting older, interpersonal relationships, gratitude, love and loss, Kern confides,”I think most people assume that my music skews toward lyrical sadness but I always try to inject a hopeful undercurrent to it. I want people to feel like there’s hope and just because something feels heavy doesn’t mean that it’s going to be that way forever.”
Taking profound inspiration from the likes of The 1975, Chelsea Cutler, and Maggie Rogers, her new single “Miss Somebody” offers a realm of reminiscence. In an ode to past love, Kern worked alongside producer Carson Cody (Valley, joan) to create a tune that echoes with her blissful vocal energy, contagious melancholy and melodious bliss. Synthesisers intertwine with vibrant rhythms to produce a truly remarkable tune. Kern explains, “As much as love is a part of being human, so is heartbreak. But there’s something beautiful about remembering something special. I’m definitely a person who struggles to let go of certain moments, feelings or people. However, I am learning how to appreciate those moments even when they’re gone. I’m learning how important it is to live in the present emotions. To think, process and write about them. To feel it all and know it’s ok to miss somebody.”
With features on MTV, ABC and the CW, Kern has found herself connecting with major industry producers and writers. Recent months have also seen Kern’s music placed on several Spotify editorial playlists including Fresh Finds, Indie All-Stars and New Music Friday which collectively have over a million followers. Garnering a global audience, humbling praise from the likes of Earmilk, Variance and Ones to Watch, and management in original Glee producer Michael Novick, Kern illustrates impeccable music ability. Ahead of her highly anticipated EP, Jenny Kern is finalizing North American tour dates for fall 2022, including an EP release show in Toronto at The Baby G. Stay tuned!
