This video pick is coming at ya via young artist Jane Ellen Bryant, hailing from Austin, Texas. The song, “Twenties” released last year explores the universal trials and tribulations of Western young-adulthood verging on the cusp of full fledged adulting. Bryant’s music is a melodious blend of pop and rock, tied together with her strong, twangy voice. Navigating the turbulent waters of social lives, full time jobs, bills, the marriage of your peers, moving back in with parents, and college (or lack thereof), Bryant speaks to the confusion of the 20s in a person’s life. In her mid-twenties herself, Bryant possesses a first hand insight to this age of transition. The video is a visual representation of all this, cut together with shots in a bouncy castle and on a velcro wall to help accent the contrast and serve as a reminder that not so long ago, people in their twenties were in high school with much different concerns (and may be nostalgic for childhood).
Jane Ellen Bryant has three releases currently, including her most recent single, “All In My Head” which just dropped on February 17th. Her talent attracted Grammy-nominated producer Chris “Frenchie” Smith (formerly of the band Young Heart Attack) who touts her incredible voice. Bryant will be performing at Hunnypot Live on May 1st, come out to The Mint and hear it for yourself!
