Not knowing who you want to be is a normal part of growing up. Sometimes you have to search again and again to find your voice and who you are. Most importantly, being confident enough at a young age to keep pushing yourself and having the drive to succeed and work hard is why Jaclyn Kenyon is poised to make a real impact in Music.

With influence from such legends as Shania Twain, Carrie Underwood, Michael Jackson, and excited about such newer young female artists like Maren Morris, Kelsea Ballerini, Carly Pearce, “A little Rock n’ Roll and A LOT Country” is what you can see and feel just by meeting this 20-year-old Ontario native, who has been going back and forth to Nashville since she was a teenager.

Always a strong performer, Jaclyn has been on the stage since the age of 12, when she was the youngest performer ever in Canada’s all-female artist showcase Honey Jam, competing against artists twice her age. This prestigious showcase, Canada’s largest and best known, had launched the careers of Nelly Furtado and Jully Black.

At 15 years old Jaclyn caught the eye of world-renowned vocal coach and multi-platinum producer “Mama” Jan Smith who immediately saw her raw talent. “Jaclyn, as a writer, I believe she can write for anybody,” Mama Jan said of Jaclyn, “Stylistically, she really doesn’t have a lot of limits, which is awesome.”

After that Jaclyn was fortunate enough to learn more about herself as an artist with multi-platinum writers and producers in Nashville and Los Angeles where she spent time trying to find what inspires her

“People have always had me try and sing different styles, whether it was Country, Rock or Pop. I’ve always gone along and tried every idea to find my voice. I’ve even had producers make me sing ‘hard rock’ “, says Jaclyn recanting some of the musical adventures she went through as a teenager, “One producer kept telling me to lose my ‘country twang’ in my voice and I didn’t realize that was just a natural part of me.

Jaclyn’s first single off her upcoming EP, “Daddy’s Got A Shotgun,” was Produced by Mike Krompass and co-written with Nashville luminaries Clay Mills and Steve Diamond.

In addition, Jaclyn has been writing in Nashville with Producer Mike Krompass, and writers Robbie Nevil, Rich Redmond.

Said of her brand new song ‘Daddy’s Got A Shotgun’, ”This is a cute fun song I wrote about an overprotective father, …no matter how old you are you’re always gonna be your daddy’s little girl, right?

Jaclyn is getting ready for what’s next, “With the great fans I’ve been building, I’ll be able to play live more often than I thought” Said an excited Jaclyn “ I’ll let you know when I play next. Please keep listening and sharing my music”

Bob Horn Discusses Collaboration & Cooperation Between Musicians & Producers

Grammy Winning Mix Engineer Bob Horn (Michael JacksonUsherTimbalandAshantiDave KozAkon) recently sat down with Joey Sturgis Tones for their series Unleash Your Creativity to discuss the importance for musicians to understand the recording process on a more practical level; by being familiar with how things work in the studio, musicians can better communicate their vision to the production team. Horn discusses why he chooses JST Plugins for not only their unique sound, but the efficiency in creating the best sounds almost immediately.

In my opinion, the key to a great production is not over-producing. So many things these days have just layers and layers of sounds and tracks and kind of, to me, distract from the song. The lyrics and melody and the vocal in most genres are what you’re selling, and if the production is too dense and too distracting, it can really take the listener away from the song. So the maturity of just putting exactly what’s needed to enhance the song itself is the best way to go about production

I have been able to manipulate audio in a way that nothing else has been able to do as smooth

JST Transify is a particular favorite of Bob’s, as he points out “You can do really amazing things [using Transify on] reverbs, choosing which parts of the reverb you want to elongate or shorten. I put it on piano today, it really brought out the attack…which normally I would have to use a lot of EQ to do that.”.” Using Transify on more than just drums, Bob has proven the versatility of JST Plugins.
