Feel So Close – Jenna GarciaNovember 23, 2011
I’m really impressed by the story of this song as well as the powerful vocals and stark simplicity of the cover (of Calvin Harris). Jenna Garcia really nails this, her first studio recording ever. I was browsing Earmilk when I came upon this. I’m going to let californiacornbread speak for himself.
I messaged her and said, “Please send me some recordings. I want them on Earmilk.” As it turns out, she had never been in a studio. Despite having over 2,000 subscribers on YouTube, Jenna had never considered getting recorded. “I don’t have any recordings,” she replied. This came as a shock to me, until I found out her resonating and mature voice was coming from a 17-year-old girl. When you’re a high school senior, you don’t exactly have the music connections we have here at Earmilk – so I made some phone calls on Jenna’s behalf… A few tweets, emails and phone calls with later, I arranged for Jenna to record a single with Doug.
Respect. And from this came awesome music. No complaints here. Check it out.
