Canadian songwriter Jenn Grant will soon release her sixth LP, Paradise, the product of a whole year spent in the home studio with producer/husband Daniel Ledwell. Batting second on Paradise is “Galaxies,” the worthy first single from the record. Grant puts cosmic metaphors over an almost-piano ballad, creating something that’s both a bit familiar and a little otherworldly. Light harmonies bounce off the held piano chords in a way that reminds the listener of space (both the musical kind and the outer kind). Here’s what Grant had to say about Paradise:
I also thought about my singing much more. I feel like I am a completely different artist from when I began performing. I don’t feel like I really heard my own voice until recently. The delivery of songs has become so important to me. And for some of these new songs, I decided to approach singing more like a whisper, to try and get a feel for it’s softness. I wanted to feel the power in that.
