Watch List: Jenn Em - Dazed And Confused
Our interest was piqued recently when we came across two black-and-white videos by 22-year-old singer/songwriter Jenn Em (Jennifer Malsch). Parts I and II of a visual narrative with dark undertones, Jenn's sultry, emotive vocals thread a noir-inspired video of Led Zeppelin's 'Dazed And Confused' with a more illuminated video of Jimi Hendrix 'Little Wing' to tell a story of seduction and betrayal (see Part II below).
A Maryland native , Jenn's early interest in music saw her playing both the piano and the violin by the age of seven, and by high school had extended to her delving into the world of R&B, where she came to local attention in the D.C. area with a remix of Wale's 'Nike Boots' ft Lil' Wayne. After high school she made the move to L.A. to pursue her dream of a music career, which saw her in 2012 participate in that year's American Idol, and she is currently writing and recording a 'raw, soul-inspired debut album', with the two black-and-white videos featured here being 'just a little taste. My music is coming...and I swear to you when it does it is going to come SO hard. Get ready...'. If you are as intrigued as we are, consider yourself warned.
