“What is uttered from the heart alone, will win the hearts of others to your own.”
– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Jenny Scott creates songs that are somewhere between pop, jazz, soul and blues, but are still too distinctive to really classify. With an enchanting voice and dreamy, adventurous melodies, Jenny proves that making music is a craft that above all should come from the heart and soul.
First attention Jenny arouse with the digital release of her jazz influenced “Things Called Love” EP in 2013, which to this day has been downloaded in more than 35 countries: Amongst Germany also in the USA, Great Britain, Arabia, Australia and China.
In March 2015, Jenny opened a show for the French – Nigerian Singer Asa on her “Bed Of Stone” Tour through Europe, which was nearly sold out.
2016, Jenny Scott made it to the semifinals of the “Jugendkulturell Förderpreis” by the Hypovereinsbank out of 160 applications and being the winner of the online voting.
This year Jenny digitally released her new studio EP “Deep Black Hole”. This five-track EP is a collection of songs with many fresh and interesting layers of modern pop music and good old styles like jazz and blues. The recordings feature Jenny on the main and backing vocals as well as on rhythm and lead guitar. Working together with other talented young musicians, every song has a complete band arrangement to it, showing what musicians that share the same vibe are able to create together.
ABOUT DEEP BLACK HOLE
Isolated and broke but focused on her dream to make music, Jenny Scott began the work on her new self-funded EP two years ago. During this time Jenny wrote songs as a way of self-exploration and discovery of her sounds and her soul, as she doubted about herself and thought about quitting music. After learning to live together with her fears and demons and finding a growing support on her followers in social media Jenny comes now more energetic than ever, to show that making music is a craft that above all should come from the heart and the soul.
“Jenny is a unique and exceptional talent and one to keep an ear on in the future.”
– John Braheny (Author of “The Craft & Business of Songwriting”, Los Angeles CA.)
In every track of “Deep Black Hole” Jenny is accompanied by Marcel Siegers who supports the mood of each song with playful rhythm and sound patterns on drums and percussion. The keys arrangements played by Christoph Siegenthaler and the groovy bass lines from Andi Kober add shades to the songs in a dynamic band setting.
On the title and opening track “Deep Black Hole” Jenny processes her difficult relationship with her father. Scott wrote “Don’t Turn Around” to remind herself of not giving up on her dream on becoming a full time musician. “While working on my new EP I was really in a bad shape. I felt stuck, working so hard to reach my goals and not seeing any significant progress”, Jenny says. “I was about to leave it behind, to stop but then I realized that giving up is not like me. So I decided to fight my doubts with the best tool that I know: writing music. That is how “Don’t Turn Around” was born.”
“I can’t believe this is you whom I see, the one so sure she could fly.”
from “Don’t Turn Around”
Being an admirer for Patti Smith, Jenny seeks the inspiration that gives her strength and direction on her way into music. The legendary performer and poet, without knowing it, influenced her on the writing of the song “Building A Good Name”.
“Build a good name. Keep your name clean. Don’t make compromises, don’t worry about making a bunch of money or being successful — be concerned with doing good work and make the right choices and protect your work. And if you build a good name, eventually, that name will be its own currency.” – Patti Smith
The soulful uplifting love song “Good Will Keep Coming” that had already been released as a single with its music video in early 2016 leads us to “Walking Alone”, the last track that with its chosen chords and structure displays the smooth and jazzy touch which is the signature of the talented young musician Jenny Scott.
