Some people won’t be pinned down. Just when you think you got them comfortably pigeon-holed into one area of your music collection, they spin their creativity on its head and send your iTunes playlists into a frenzy of confusion. Is it EDM? Is it Rock? Is it Emo/Trance/Poptronica? How do you put all of that together and still come up with something that simply blows you away with every note ……… meet JES.
Beatsmedia recently caught up with JES to find out more!!
Beatsmedia: As an artist who achieved her first vocal recording at age 16, was music the career you always envisioned for yourself? Was there ever a time when you could see yourself pursuing a different career path?
JES BRIEDEN: I actually first recorded a song at age 14 called, “Wasted On Your Love.” I don’t think I even had a boyfriend yet. It’s so funny, but no, I never did see myself doing anything else. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy. It was a big dream for me, but as soon as I recorded my first song, that was it. I was amazed at the whole process and the outcome, that I never thought about not making it my life. I had wanted to act and I went on auditions a lot, but I didn’t really enjoy the feel of the acting scene. I still love to act, but it is singing and writing for me all the way.
