An Interview With Jenn Ford
We had a few minutes to talk with Jenn Ford about her latest single "Hot Mess Express".
Hi Jenn! Thank you for chatting with me today! Hi thanks, I appreciate it.
TSWS: You just released a new single! Congrats! Will you tell us a bit about it?
Jenn: Yes! Its called The Hot Mess Express and is a fun summer tune for the gals. Its about letting your hair down and just going out to get in a bit of trouble with your best friend after a long day, a long week, or in most cases, a long year. My sister was a Covid Nurse during 2020 and raising a toddler, so its kind of a nod to her, because she deserves a break. She helped me write the line "Ditch them yoga pants, put on your favorite boots," which is such the vibe right now after being through the Pandemic. We all just want a break.
TSWS: What was your creative process like for this song?
Jenn: I like to write songs with sassy lyrics, so if I feel a certain way, or an attitude and can write it down somewhere, sometimes a song comes out of it. I am so busy with my own family that I write in passing much of the time. Its just a stream of ideas that I record in notes on my phone, or random sheets of paper and the melody goes on my phone and I save everything until it feels likea song has been made. I'm a little embarrassed by how scattered that sounds, but it feels natural and comes naturally when I catch those moments as they come.
TSWS: Who are some of your biggest musical influences?
Jenn: I absolutely love Bonnie Raitt, Susan Tedeschi, Tina Turner, The Allman Brothers, Fleetwood Mac, John Prine, Jimi Hendrix, Sheryl Crow, and Beth Hart.
TSWS: If you had to describe your music in one word, what would it be?
TSWS: What is inspiring you right now?
Jenn: Musically, it is inspiring to see that folks are relishing in the joy of an actual live performance instead of just being glued to their devices. Folks are supporting live performances because there is just nothing to replace those moments of magic.
TSWS: What is your favorite thing about being an artist?
Jenn: Constantly reinventing my own music. It's never really finished. It's just a conversation piece for my fans. As I evolve, so do my songs and how I perform them.
TSWS: Do you have any projects coming you want us to know about?
Jenn: Ooooh so many cool things coming. At least 3 to 5 more releases in 2021, a live album, and possibly studio time leading into 2022.
