Watch List: Jetta - Feels Like Coming Home (Live)
U.K. singer/songwriter and Republic Records artist, Jetta, started somewhat of a riot of her own on the music scene in late 2012 with the release of an iPhone-shot video for her song of the same name, images of the exuberant excitability of youth were combined with a percussive punchiness and urgent, fuzzy guitar as her clear, strong vocal tone exhorted listeners to 'start a riot', seeing her be hailed by the likes of NME and go on to make an appearance at SXSW. Her thoughtfully confessional and piano and martial-drum driven follow up track 'Feels Like Coming Home' was picked up by Google and used for their 2013 Google Zeitgeist commercial, which currently clocks in at over 30 million views, as well as being featured in Fox's NFL Super Bowl Pregame and the trailer for the feature film 'Winters Tale', with both songs being taken from Jetta's recently stateside released 'Start A Riot' EP.
Born into a family of musicians, Jetta was immersed in music, being introduced to the likes of The Police, David Bowie, Annie Lennox and Tracy Chapman by her parents and at sixteen locked herself away in her room to began making music of her own. Instantly attracting attention at her first gig, she was soon a well regarded back up singer, working with the likes of Paloma Faith and Cee Lo, before Republic Records recognized her own unique talents and signed her to a deal, and she is working with producer Jim Eliot (Ellie Goulding, M.I.A) on her LP, set for later in 2014.
