Harkening back to the golden oldies with an infusion of rock, pop, and blue, Jess McAvoy delivers with “Do What You Want” an astute lyricism that is seldom heard in music today. Conceived in a playful way, Jess infused her astute lyricism about the playfulness and joy when it comes to enjoying the romantic company of another, creating a joy and vessel of connection. Good things happen when we feel good, so from a law of attraction standpoint, it’s important to move towards things that make us all feel the most like ourselves.
About the song, McAvoy comments:
’Do What You Want’ is a really welcoming departure from what I have released in the recent past. There’s a fun aspect to it, a kind of ‘Fuck it, life is short’ perspective. I like that it’s less serious. It’s really fun to sing.
Australian-born, Brooklyn-based songwriter and performer, Jess McAvoy has spent over two decades mining the human condition for her prolific output of music and lyrics capping off her founding years in Australia with a stunning collaboration with Goyte on “The Sailor.”
A powerful vocalist and commanding live performer, McAvoy combines blues, pop, rock and astute lyricism to create a powerful, hook-laden examination of that which fuels us all – the desire for connection.
