Singer-Songwriter Jenn Bostic is a unique artist that can paint her music canvases with undeniable emotive stories about her own life experiences while inspiring her listeners to believe there is light after dark times. I was lucky enough to have a quick chat with Bostic about her inspirations, her music and her future.

SR: What is your story?
JB: I’m a singer/songwriter originally from a small town in Minnesota, now residing in Nashville, Tennessee. I’ve been singing for as long as I can remember, and music is my therapy. It has gotten me through many challenges, including the loss of my father. The vulnerability in my songwriting has allowed me to connect with people around the world.

SR: How would you describe your music style?
JB: I love so many styles of music, and my upcoming album Revival due to release May 4th, blends the best bits of blues, soul, gospel, country and pop. The songs are honest and raw, the sound is old school and live.

SR: Does being a female artist motivate you to speak on everyday emotions females deal with in your songwriting?
JB: Absolutely. There are so many challenges to being an independent artist and entrepreneur, and as a woman, there are different obstacles that don’t always get talked about. One big one for me is the timing and desire to have a family.

SR: What current artists are motivating you?
JB: I really love Carly Pearce, and I think she’s one of the most humble, genuine artists out there. She was one of the first artists I met when I moved to Nashville and she really is as nice as she is talented. I look at her story and it reminds me that true talent does break through.

SR; What are the most challenging thing/s about being an artist?
JB: Taking a break. When you love what you do, it’s easy to work 24/7, and constantly pour everything you have into your art. However, I have learned over the years that if I don’t take time to rest and rejuvenate, my art suffers.

SR: What do you want your listeners to take with them after listening to your music?
JB: It is my hope that the listener are encouraged and empowered to believe they can overcome any obstacle.

SR: What inspired the song, “Faint of Heart”?
JB: My life. It’s the honest, vulnerable story of being an independent artist and entrepreneur for the last decade. While it’s incredibly personal and specific, it has been amazing to see people resonate with the lyric.

SR: Do you have any pre-show rituals before any live performance?
JB: I always try and take time to focus before a show. A few moments of quiet to remember the vision for the show, and to say a little prayer is something that’s really important to me.

SR: If you could duet with any artist dead or alive who would it be and why?
JB: Bonnie Raitt. She’s my favorite singer and listening to her albums inspired me to sing from the depths of my soul.

SR: What advice would you give anyone who aspires to be an artist?
JB: Always be honest and authentic. It’s the best way to connect with people and it’s also the most fulfilling.

SR: What is next for you?
JB: My new album Revival will release on May 4. I will be touring through Europe, Mexico, and the US to promote it. I cannot wait to share it with the world.
