DIY Spotlight: Jenny March

Los Angeles pop singer and songwriter Jenny March has just released her debut EP Madness, along with the single and video for “Scream.” This is a prolific time for the rising artist, though it’s been a long time coming.

“I started taking dance classes at two years old, sang at church and in school shows, performed in the talent show each year, performed in musicals around my hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio etc.,” March says. “I loved performing and it didn’t matter what I was doing as long as I was entertaining. Music got more serious once I moved out to L.A. and I really started to believe that this could happen, and oh now I kind of know how it works and what to do in order to get my music out there. I was around 16 then.”

While March says that her sound is her own, she also says that it features “‘80s-inspired bass lines and synths as well as some ‘90s-pop melodies, with a little alternative influence mixed in there.”

Her songs are utterly infectious and sugary sweet, with big hooks. But there’s also an honesty, an authenticity, about March’s lyrics that is easy to relate to. These are diaries, glimpses into her psyche, and they’re startlingly real.

Her career is still in the early stages, but March says that she’s grown since her 2019 single, “Rebound.”

“I feel that my production has gone to a whole new level since the release of ‘Rebound’,” she says. “It was released almost two years ago so I as well have grown and found new influences and have bigger goals.”

When asked what DIY means to her, she says, “do it yourself.”

“It’s easier when you can do multiple things yourself; write your own songs, record yourself and produce your own music,” she says. “You won’t have to rely on anyone to do the work for you and a lot of things, like getting things back on time, aren’t an issue.”

March has plenty planned in 2021. “More music and yes, more livestreams and hopefully actual LIVE shows,” she says.
