Peruvian-Egyptian, LA artist Jen Awad is bringing back soul combining Etta James vocals, the swagger of Tina Turner and a touch of nostalgia while dealing with themes of love, loss and trying to make sense of it all. Her signature, powerhouse vocals drive her cinematic tales that serve up heartache with a full dose of attitude that has Flaunt Magazine declaring “Jen Awad has a cruelly confessional way around tapping into everyone’s pangs.” and LA Times cheering “Awad is way out front, holding almost nothing back.” Whether Jen is making music that’s airy and beautiful with a slight twist of ache or something that gets you out of your seat and dancing, she puts you in a mood to ride it on repeat with style and a playful wink!
On her latest single, “Tsunami” Jen weaves a breezy, tale with a touch of melancholy about complexities of love. “It’s about riding the wave of whatever may happen and being down for it. It’s about taking a gamble on loving someone who may not protect your heart but can’t imagine never trying to take the leap”, says Awad about the track. Jen is set to release her first debut album spring 2021.
