My name Is Jenna. I am a VERY passionate person. I love literature, sweater weather, chai tea, going to the movies…but mostly, I love music. I particularly love Indie. It’s always been important to me to introduce all different kinds of people to new music that I find worth sharing.
With that said I will tell you a little bit more about myself. I come from a very small town in Michigan called..(drum roll please)…South Haven. Not many people have ever heard of such a place…probably because to see it on a map you need a couple magnifying glasses. I feel very fortunate to have been able to grow up in such an awesome town! The only downside is it’s the type of town where everyone knows your business, and personally I grew up very sheltered, with pretty much NO musical taste at all whatsoever and it really didn’t mean much to me when I was younger.
South Haven VVV
When I entered into middle school, I, like everyone else was really into music that was mainstream (Ex:Brittney Spears, Christina Aguilera), pretty much whatever was popular at the time. In 2003 I got really into a show called “The O.C.” (yes that teen soap opera you either watched or made fun of). Say what you will but that show changed my life and more importantly my taste in music. It was all thanks to the very talented Music Supervisor of the show, Alexandra Patsavas. Alexandra brought all of this quirky, cool music to my attention…bands like Death Cab for Cutie, Rooney, Bright Eyes, Spoon, The Dandy Warhols, Radiohead, and so many more bands that are now very big (thanks to Alexandra if you ask me). I started to get into all these bands and after every episode I went immediately to the website to see what songs had played that night. That’s when I became obsessed with searching for music…for example, I would hear 2 seconds of a song on some random commercial and I HAD to find out what it was and who sang it. Alexandra Patsavas brought to my attention the MAGICAL world of Indie music!
