Art & Life with Joe Jenneman

Today we’d like to introduce you to Joe Jenneman.

Joe, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I’m a LA based Singer, Songwriter, and Guitarist who’s influences span genres from Blues, to Country, to R and B. My music has been summed up as “Easy on the Ears and Good for the Soul.”

I was born and raised in West Michigan and have played at countless venues around the area since I began performing at the age of 9.

From 2015-2016, I attend Columbia College in Chicago. During that year I performed at several venues in the city (The Empty Bottle, Reggie’s Rock Club, Silvie’s Lounge, etc.), and recorded my debut EP, “Stonebridge,” which features bass work from Joe Ayoub (Shakira, Enrique Iglesias. Colbie Callait, Jessie McCartney, etc.).

In late spring of 2017, I recorded a Bluesy, Folk Rock styled EP entitled “American Guilt.” The featured songs cover themes of heartbreak, hope, and worldly views.

Since relocating to Los Angeles, I’ve been in the studio recording my single, “Your Name” with Grammy Nominated Producer, Erik Kertes (Michael Buble, Shakira, etc.). “Your Name” was just released on all major streaming services!

Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I sing, play guitar and write songs. I like to think of myself as more of a writer than anything. The way I see it, the music is just there to compliment the emotion of the story I’m telling. All of my favorite artists are great storytellers. I encourage listeners to try and pick up on every lyric they can, detail in the words is where I feel that I really shine.

Artists rarely, if ever pursue art for the money. Nonetheless, we all have bills and responsibilities and many aspiring artists are discouraged from pursuing art due to financial reasons. Any advice or thoughts you’d like to share with prospective artists?
With something as exciting and fun as music, there’s going to be a lot of people who want to do what you do. This means a lot of competition, and difficulty making a steady income doing what you love. If you’re as passionate as I am however, you stick it out and trust that your talents, combined with hard work will eventually turn a profit. There are options to help a “starving artist” like myself get there. I currently have a fundraiser on GoFundMe raising money to record my upcoming single. I’d definitely suggest taking advantage of opportunities as such, and to never stop grinding at what you love.

What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
