Wow! In just a short time, Music City singer-songwriter Jennafer Lynsey’s new single “Click” has had over a quarter-million Spotify streams. Give this fun and fresh-sounding Pop Country tune a listen here! Earlier this year, Jennafer released her debut EP “Sensitive.” The records charts need be ready for this young lady with a sharp sound and a huge heart.
Jennafer had this to say about her new single: “‘Click’ is about that relationship where you meet someone and instantly connect. It’s like when they say you meet someone and feel like your souls were meant to be together. Like you’ve known each other forever. It’s a lighthearted, happy, pop-country song that just makes you feel good. It makes you want to dance and sing along to it.”
With the stages currently pandemic-empty, Jennafer has been doing some safe live streaming through her Facebook page. Thanks “J” for joining us at 11 Questions.
Where are you from originally, when did you move to Nashville and why?
I am originally from a little suburb of Buffalo, NY called Clarence. I moved to Nashville as soon as I graduated high school in 2015.
What are the first and the last records you bought, and where did you buy them? Were they CD, vinyl or digital?
I remember being little and plugging Rihanna’s first album into my CD player. I would spend hours creating dance routines in my room and performing these songs. I did the same with all the Hannah Montana albums. They were both, of course, CDs. The most recent album I purchased was probably Ariana Grande’s Thank U, Next album. I did buy the CD.
First and last live concerts that you’ve seen?
The first concert I ever went to was a Hillary Duff concert! So proud of that, not going to lie LOL. The last concert was the Righteous Brothers.
Whose star should be added to the Music City Walk of Fame?
I would love to see Maren Morris get added. She is so different, and what she stands for is impacting the world because of it.
Where do you go in Nashville for coffee and pizza?
I love Honest Roasters for coffee. It’s new to my life. I’ve only been going there for a couple of months now, but it is so, so good! For pizza, you can’t go wrong with Five Points Pizza. I’m originally from Buffalo, NY, and they truly capture real New York pizza.
What’s your favorite record to ever come out of Nashville?
My favorite record to come out of Nashville? I feel like this is impossible to answer. My little kid self would, of course, scream Taylor Swift. Right now, as a 23-year-old, I have fallen in love with so many varieties of music, I could never choose.
Where’s the best place to eat late night after a show?
My home. I naturally am a healthy eater, and I work really hard on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. So, while it’s quite boring, I’d probably eat something at home. Ha ha ha!
The Bluebird calls and asks you to host an “In the Round.” Pick three local songwriters to join you.
Does it matter if they’re famous or not? I’d definitely invite Ashley Gorley. That man has written more number one hits than you could possibly count. I’d probably also pick J Kyle Reynolds. Joseph Kyle Reynolds, not Jordan Kyle Reynolds, but he can come. For my third person, I’d probably pick Danny Wells. He’s a friend of mine, and I’ve done rounds with him before. When he performs his song, “Check Yes or No,” the crowd goes wild!
What are your favorite music venues to play in town?
I currently play both Big Machine Vodka locations and LOVE playing there. It’s filled with people who aren’t really involved in music. Because of that, you can make real-time fans. People in the industry are incredible people, but naturally if you perform for other music artists, they are, rightfully, focusing more on their career and making theirs happen rather than supporting yours.
Name a musician who you’d like to see move here?
My friend Whitney Lusk is INSANELY talented. She currently lives in Utah and is working on making the move over here. I truly believe in her and know she is meant for greatness. Plus, I miss her and would love to hang out with her, too, lol.
Finally, what’s in your musical future?
My musical future is to be able to help as many people as I can through my music. I want to be able to take people away from the real world and make them happy, while I also want to be able to be there for them and help them through their real-world struggles. I want to be the best friend they might not have. This is what music always did for me, and I’d love to be able to do the same for others.
