At the tender age of 19, emerging artist Jenna Roessler is already leaving an indelible mark on the music scene, and her latest single, “Simulation,” serves as a testament to her prodigious talent. Hailing from the musical hub of Nashville, Jenna’s artistry combines elements of indie/pop and rock/pop genres, setting her apart with a refreshing take on the pop landscape. “Simulation” is not just a song; it’s an emotional odyssey encapsulated in a three-minute melody. From the first chord, Jenna’s melodic sensibilities take center stage, creating an immersive experience for the listener. The track, recorded at Orange Sherbet Studios in El Cerrito, California, on a Tascam 388 8-track reel-to-reel machine, boasts a distinct quality that echoes the sincerity of Jenna’s musical expression.
The song’s lyrics delve into the complexities of human emotions, drawing inspiration from Jenna’s personal experiences and relationships. The opening lines, “Wish it didn’t have to be this way, but there’s nothing I can do,” set the tone for a heartfelt narrative that navigates through the challenging landscapes of love and self-discovery. Jenna’s collaboration with Zodlounge, Sky Studio, and Smith Curry in the production of “Simulation” brings forth a lush sonic tapestry. The track is strategically placed as part of Jenna’s upcoming EP, with each song representing a unique color and emotion. “Simulation” itself, associated with the color red, mirrors the anger and frustration Jenna felt during a particular experience, cleverly tying in with the thematic use of the rose.
The song not only showcases Jenna’s vocal prowess but also her songwriting finesse. It’s a stripped-down ballad, a departure from her previous punkier tones, yet it retains the anthemic energy that weaves through the choruses and outro. It’s not just a composition; it’s a musical conversation, a heartfelt expression that resonates with listeners on a profound level. As Jenna Roessler continues to carve her niche in the music industry, “Simulation” stands as a testament to her ability to transcend the ordinary, offering a fresh perspective and a sonic journey through the spectrum of emotion. With this single, Jenna not only invites you to listen but to feel, connecting with the universal language that is music.
