Hey, great thanks! It’s been a busy few months touring and getting ready to release my brand new album “Revival.”
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Revival”?
“Revival” is about bringing strength and passion back into our dreams, faith, and hopes. It is an encouragement to stay positive and believe that something good is always about to happen.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
I’ve been an independent artist and entrepreneur for the last decade. I have experienced some major wins, as well as some great disappointments. “Revival” is a reminder to me that even when things don’t look the way we thought they might, it is so important to get rid of doubt and focus on being grateful for all the good around us.
How was the filming process and experience behind the video?
I filmed the music video for “Revival” with a videographer based in Nashville, named Patrick Tohill. It was a really fun, really quick shoot. I wish I could say that kitchen I danced around is mine, but it’s not. We rented the space for a few hours and organically let the music take over. I’ve now been having sock sliding competitions with younger fans around the world since releasing it.
Why naming the album after this track in particular?
There’s so much power in the word “Revival.” My faith is a huge part of my life and my music, and it is my mission to spread love, hope and positivity into the world through the songs I write. It is my hope that the listener finds comfort, encouragement, and strength in the music and that their hearts and eyes are opened to seeing the world or their situation a little bit differently.
How was the recording and writing process?
I have never had so much fun in the studio! I recorded the album at House of Blues Studios in Nashville, Tennessee, with my producer, and six-time Grammy winner, Paul Salveson, The musicians are all great friends of mine, including my brother Jeff Bostic, who played bass on the album. For the first time, I fully trusted myself in the studio, I didn’t think about what a record label or the radio might want to hear, I captured moments and created a piece of art that truly brings me joy.
How old school can we expect this album to be?
The album definitely has an old school vibe, which is what we wanted. All the instruments were recorded at the same time, and it’s soulful, yet bluesy and organic, while capturing the gospel/pop and country elements that you find in my previous albums.
Where else did you find the inspiration for the songs and lyrics?
Life. Songwriting is my therapy. Whatever I’m going through usually ends up in a song. If someone tells me a story or I watch a film that touches my heart, I express myself through writing.
Any plans to hit the road?
Yes! I’ve been on tour pretty much nonstop since February, and there are no signs of slowing down. I will be in Austin, Texas, during SXSW as the Artist Ambassador for Quantum Collective’s Southwest Invasion show benefitting Whole Planet Foundation. I’ll also be doing a full band tour of the UK in April and May. All my tour dates can be found at jennbostic.com/tour.
What else is happening next in Jenn Bostic’s world?
The new album is being released on May 4, so I’ll be busy touring and promoting the new music. Looking forward to some fun surprises I have in the works.
