SINGER SONGWRITER JETT JENKINS STOPS IN AND TALKS ABOUT HER NEW COVER OF "DAREDEVIL" PLUS MORE!

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW!


With her newest release — a cover of Fiona Apple’s “Daredevil” — indie pop artist Jett Jenkins departs from the “dreamy, colorful production” of her last few releases and shows all the assertiveness and force of Fiona Apple’s original.


“Fiona Apple’s my favorite artist, and the album that ‘Daredevil’ is off of is the first one that really got me hooked into her music,” said Jett.


Jett’s “Daredevil” drops on November 17.


“That song really showed me how she can use emotion in her singing, and the bridge of that song was just so special to me — I loved it so much that I wanted to sing it myself.”


Jett’s voice has softer edges than Fiona’s, yet when she launches into that bridge she is every bit as commanding — “Seek. Me. Out. — every word an order to be obeyed.


Seek me out

Look at, look at, look at, look at me 

I'm all the fishes in the sea 

Wake me up 

Give me, give me, give me what you got In your mind, in the middle of the night 


“It’s a song that I love so much I wish I wrote it, so, the best thing I could do was sing it. It’s kind of a declaration of love to Fiona Apple, but it’s my own version, and it’s how I hear the song and how it — my interpretation of it musically — how it makes me feel.”


Her version has the same musical structure, the same emphatic beat and rhythm, but the instrumentation gives it a more whimsical vibe as it builds toward that powerful bridge where the woman singing demands the attention of her lover.



And the listener.


“I wanted to keep it similar because I love the song so much, but I also wanted to make it a little bit more modern, make it more my style, so, it has a bit of flair.”


The EP that “Daredevil” precedes, Break Cover, Volume 1, will be, as the name suggests, an EP of cover songs. Her live shows include cover songs, and she gets good feedback on them.


“I wanted to choose some of my favorite artists and songs and put them out. A lot of my favorite artists, like Phoebe Bridgers and Fiona Apple, have released cover songs, but I thought it would be really interesting to do a whole EP of them.”


The planned release for the EP is December 2.


In its tone and assertiveness, her “Daredevil” is much more like her first song, “City in Anger,” released in 2021, than the reflective, meditative indie-pop music she has released since. 


“I think I tend to go toward meditative stuff because I consider myself more of a poet,” she said, 


Jett, a Texas writing major attending college in Brooklyn, New York, says she is willing to go wherever her music will take her.


“I’ll always put out music even if it doesn’t get super big or even just big at all, because I am such a diehard fan of all music. I’d love if it could take me to a bigger place where I could meet people and share my music. My music is very personal and has helped me through a lot of hard times. I hope that my music can help other people.”


She is moving back toward the edginess of “City of Anger,” which was the first song she ever wrote and is still one of her favorites. 


“To me, it was like the perfect first song because I Ioved the rock element, but it also felt a lot like meditations on grief. It was just a plethora of things that I loved about music.”


Her next album after Break Cover will be more in that direction and “more into indie-punk rock, and a little bit like new wave.”


“I’m definitely trying to write more aggressive stuff. Most of my favorite songs are very anger filled songs, and I’m kind of going towards that.”
