Jenn Connor returns with burgeoning pop hit, “Like I Did”

Caledonia, Canada’s Jenn Connor continues to bring much-needed innovation to pop music, which has been in stagnation for over a decade. By teaming up with famed American producer Tomas Costanza (Boys Like Girls, Secondhand Serenade), the two emphasize a priority of realness, complete with hooky, but honest structural foundations. Costanza expounded on his thoughts during their initial contact.

“Jenn is a breath of fresh air in a business filled with musical sludge. She doesn’t carry any of the baggage of many of today’s young singers and is truly about the music first.” He adds, “She doesn’t worry about creating a product; she only concerns herself with making music she loves.”

Last week, “Like I Did,” Connor’s newest single from her forthcoming EP, Come Alive, received treatment from multiplatinum producer Rob Wells, who has worked with three internationally chart-topping artists: Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber. What’s on offer here strikes a fair amount of pleasant curiosity – colorful tones of deep bass and dripping synths, all working to bolster Connor’s disenchantment with social media-bound youth. There’s decent balance in its presentation as well, considering a majority of pop artists’ sounds come off shallow and cluttered. The growth of “Like I Did” is currently slow, but assured, and can potentially make waves as a year-defining single in good time. Look out for its lyric video soon!

About Jake Kussmaul

I come from a family who is passionate about all things music. I learned to sing at an early age, and by 13, had my very own Fender Strat guitar. I tried my hardest at learning all that I could. Because I was born with cerebral palsy, I had to teach myself an adaptive playing style. I learned to write and record my own music, despite these difficulties. In college, I started making great use of my writing abilities by reviewing music, as well as copy editing. I guess it's best to stick with what you know, while welcoming a fair challenge at the same time.
