Sydney electronic pop extraordinaire Jazzy K has shared a pair of live tracks for the latest instalment of Rolling Stone’s ‘In My Room’, a series in which artists perform from home following a year which has seen live shows become a rarity.
If you’ve been ensuring your finger is firmly on the pulse of local music, then the name Jazzy K will in no way be a new one to you. With the Sydney artist’s powerful voice turning heads for ages, recent years have seen her releasing a string of slick singles, and now focusing on breaking into the elusive US market.
However, even with a rapidly-rising profile, Jazzy K has found the time to record a wonderful live session for our ‘In My Room’ session, offering up renditions of her recent singles for our listening pleasure.
Armed with a minimal setup of just a microphone and backing track, Jazzy K kicks things off with May’s “Trap House”, allowing her mesmerising, blissful voice to stand front and centre as its empowering message washes over you.
“I wrote that song when I had just come back from this trip to LA and I had to make a pretty big decision,” Jazzy K recalls. “I really just had to remind myself to trust myself, and that’s what that song reminds me all the time, and I hope it remind you guys to always trust your gut instincts and stay true to who you are.”
Moving on to her 2019 single “You Are”, the world-beating artist explains how her debut single was one that came from a deeply personal place, and one that aims to make a difference in the world.
“I wrote this song to raise a very important message about bullying and it’s really just to remind people that if someone’s putting you down, it’s usually just a reflection of how they see themselves or an insecurity of their own,” she explains. “All of the profits of this song go to an anti-bulling charity called Ditch the Label.”
Closing things out with recent single, “Don’t Look Back”, Jazzy K undeniably showcases her talent as not only a stunning songwriter and performer, but also a major name to watch in the global music industry.
