Through My Eyes delicately captures Jett Jenkins’ experiences with deep grief and the most transformative years of her life to date.
DALLAS, TX (March 10, 2022) – Dallas indie pop artist Jett Jenkins just released her debut EP, Through My Eyes, which is a culmination of heartbreak, loss, changing friendships, and coming of age experiences. Each of the five songs on the project documents deeply personal, life changing events that occurred in Jett’s world over the last few years. After losing her father, friends, and the reality she knew her whole life, the artist took to songwriting as an outlet for her grief. Jett hopes these songs offer comfort to those experiencing similar losses.
“Through My Eyes is a personal testament to my grief and feelings for a year of my life,” says Jett. “These songs pour out words I couldn’t speak. They are very close to my heart and mean the world to me.”
Sonically, the EP captures the rock influences Jett grew up with, while introducing a strong sense of indie pop that allows fans of all backgrounds to enjoy listening. Inspired by strong female artists like Phoebe Bridgers, the singer found her sound naturally – blending the styles she most enjoys as a music fan with the raw vulnerability of honest lyrics. In addition to streaming now, Through My Eyes will soon be available on vinyl, yet to be announced. Dallas fans can join Jett in celebration of this monumental milestone at her EP/vinyl release party on April 24 at The Barley House – ticket info coming soon.
DALLAS, TX (November 14, 2021) – Indie-pop singer-songwriter Jett Jenkins released her debut single, “City In Anger,” on November 14. This track – oozing with personality, charisma, and invigorated by Jenkin’s buttery vocals – serves as the perfect introduction for this female powerhouse. Reminiscent of songs from artists like Clairo and Billie Eilish, Jenkins does an outstanding job of articulating her authentic story in relatable terms (and intensely danceable beats). This track is a catchy bedroom pop vibe kissed with a subtle pop-punk edge that perfectly captures Jenkin’s artistic identity. “City In Anger” showcases undeniable finesse, while never once allowing the raw emotion behind Jenkin’s performance to feign.
She wrote this melancholic anthem late-night on New Year’s Day in Malibu. For Jenkins, this moment was characterized as a time of distress in which she craved stability and comfort, despite feeling like the world was spinning around her. The emerging artist had no problem demanding the listener’s full attention on this track; hypnotic verses unfold into a harmonically decadent chorus impossible not to dance along to. Jenkins found, through writing “City In Anger”, that embracing chaos is sometimes the best way to find peace. Fans can look forward to a limited edition 45rpm vinyl available only on Jenkins’ website, with City In Anger on side A and her version of Silent Night on Side B.
