Even though the state of the world may be up in the air right now, I truly feel like we are living in one of the best times for music. Sure, today’s Top 40 is not for everyone – especially aging Millennials – but thanks to artists who have thrown genres and trends aside and the world wide web, we have this completely separate popular music scene.
Gone are the days of picking your favorite rock, pop or country radio station. Thanks to apps like SoundCloud, BandCamp and Spotify, we can literally listen to whatever we want to. Artists draw from so many inspirations from so many different eras and the end result is truly incredible.
Jesse Jo Stark fits that bill perfectly. Her brand new single “Fire of Love” is a sultry mix of so many sub-genres of rock. There are hints of rockabilly, glam rock and a bass line that melts you right into the track. “I wanted to write an anthem with a lady stomp,” said Stark. “It tells the story of loss, but it’s empowering and fearless. The woman knows just what she wants from it. Musically, it represents the moment everything clicked between myself, Dan [Taylor], and Tom [Hunter]. It’s magic.”
Jesse Jo Stark did an incredible job of creating a sound that is both relevant, but would also get the nod of approval from the all time greats of rock & roll. I have little doubt that her career is about to completely take off once “Fire of Love” hits the masses.
Listen to “Fire of Love” by Jesse Jo Stark and co-produced by Dan Taylor and Thomas Hunter.
