“My Letter To You” is a harrowing piece from London-born, LA-based soul-pop artist Jenny JAM. The track was released alongside a moving video.
Jenny says that the song “is a ballad about a response to an unexpected, hurtful letter sent by my late father, before he passed away from lung cancer in 2014.“
She further reveals that “I wrote to him from London (where I was living at the time) but he died before he was able to properly read it and I never heard back. During lockdown, I decided to make it into a song and film the music video across the US from Los Angeles to Florida, to portray the journey of my letter sent across many miles. The lyrics depict the hurtful, unexpected words written to me and my strength to overcome the pain, describing the words I wish I could send him from where I now live, Los Angeles.”
Jenny JAM co-directed the visual with David Bertolami.
