“Talk to Me” is the latest single out now by the up-and-coming 23-year-old pop singer, Jenny March. She recently released the music video for the track. The sun-soaked video arrives just in time for summer! Jenny will be releasing an EP later this year that she worked with producer Tony Rodini (blackbear, Weezer, Terror Jr) on.
“Talk To Me” is Jenny’s second single and has garnered over 153K Spotify streams. It follows her debut single “California Daze” (130K Spotify streams).
March grew up just outside Cincinnati and then moved to LA to become a recording artist when she was 15. She certainly caught the entertainment bug early in her childhood and attended New York’s prestigious Stagedoor Manor acting camp five years in a row. She later landed acting roles with Marisa Tomei and Minnie Driver in the horror film Laboratory Conditions as well as starring in the short The Stanford Letter and a 12-minute Secret Deodorant anti-bullying spot entitled Meanamorphosis.

Thanks for your time today! Where does this interview find you now? What’s on tap for the rest of your day?
Of course (: I’m home right now, but I had a meeting this morning and later today I have a session to work on this song I started the other day.
All Access Music is currently compiling a list of our artists favorite songs this summer so what is YOUR song of the summer?
I’ve been listening to Drake’s new album ‘Scorpion’ a lot recently. I really like his song ‘In My Feelings’. It’s like the song my friends and I always turn on to dance.
Overall, how do you think 2018 has been treating you and your music career? What has been one goal that you have had this year and how close are you to reaching it?
2018 has by far been the best year of my life, just because I finally got to put my music out. It’s been a journey, but I’m so happy I waited. One goal of mine was to have a song on the radio in any state/city and that came true about a month ago. It’s pretty surreal to think that some cities are spinning my single ‘Talk To Me’. I don’t think it’s kicked in yet.
Growing up, was music always a big part of your life? Can you recall your first ever musical experience?
Oh yeah. I loved music and dancing since I was a kid. When I was 4 years old, my parents took me to Austria (I know, so random and crazy and I don’t remember much of the trip), BUT my favorite movie as a kid was “The Sound of Music” so my parents took me on a tour there to see the set of the film. On the bus ride there, I went up to the front to perform “Do-Re-Mi” for everyone on the bus. I WISH my parents got a video of it.
What has been the biggest surprise so far about making music your career? Has there been an unexpected or welcome challenge to it all?
There hasn’t really been anything that surprising about making it my career. I kind of knew what I was getting myself into and I was excited about it. I like to always be doing something, so when I feel like I don’t have anything to do I freak out and I’m like I should be doing something! but sometimes you need to give yourself a little break.
How do you think you and your music have been influenced by your hometown and where you live today? What is the music scene like there these days?
Well I moved to LA when I was a teenager, so I feel like a lot of the experiences that I pull from are from when I’ve been in LA. I definitely think that my hometown, Cincinnati, has helped shape the person I am today and just my values and views on life. Its helped me write from a real place and to have an open mind in sessions. The music scene is a lot smaller there, but I would love to play there sometime soon.
How would you say that you have grown as an artist since you first starting making music? What has remained the same? I’m curious what it has been like transitioning from acting to music? Do you find that acting has helped you be a better musician today?
I think I’ve grown a lot as a songwriter since I first started making music. It’s been really cool working with different writers and seeing everyone’s different writing style. The audition process with acting really helped me gain confidence and to just always believe in myself even if someone doesn’t or if they don’t like my music. If I didn’t get the job, I just had to say “Hey! You did a great job. On to the next…” you can’t let that stuff get to you.
Let’s talk about your latest track “Talk To Me.” What was the inspiration for this song? The video for it looks like it was a lot of fun to make. Was it? How creatively involved were you with the overall making of it?
Omg the video was sooo fun! I had so many friends come out to support me and be extras in the video, it was really sweet. I pretty much knew what I wanted the video to be when I asked for treatments when looking for a director. I wanted the pool party with pool floats, avocados and mimosas and a contrast night scene. The Hustlecake team really helped make my vision come to life and do even more. “Talk To Me” became a song because I had just turned 21, and I was enjoying being able to have a glass of wine before bed and feel like a grown up. I was finally able to go to brunch with my girlfriends at cute rooftop bars in LA, so I wanted to make a fun summer song that was all about girl empowerment and living in the moment.
How do you think this song and your previous release “California Daze” prepares listeners for more music from you and your upcoming debut EP? What was it like working with your producer Tony Rodini on this collection? When do you hope to release it?
One is more edgy than the other. I think they show that I’m going to have variety on my EP. Tony was great to work with. He was really open to trying new things and making it a collaborative process. I HOPE to release my EP by the end of summer, but that’s coming up really soon now so we’ll see.
What do you think makes for an ideal show for you? What has been a favorite performance of yours so far? Where can fans see you perform live next this summer?
By far the performance and presence on stage. If you have a really great voice but can’t perform, then I lose interest. One of my favorite performances I’ve seen was Jon Bellion. I’m lining up some shows in LA for August right now!
What has it been like keeping up with your social media accounts and all the different platforms? Is it hard to stay up to date on it all?
Not gunna lie, it’s been kinda hard. It’s just hard to post every day and have enough content too even. It’s what I gotta do though and I love to interact with my fans so I don’t mind responding to DM’s and stuff 🙂
Where can our readers connect with you?
@jennymarchmusic on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook! Tweeting me is the easiest way to get in touch, but I also check my Insta DM’s.
Who are some of your favorite artists or rather, what musicians have continued to inspire you and your music? Who would you absolutely still love to work with in the future?
Madonna and Britney were always big influences of mine. It would be so cool to have a song with one of them. Right now, I’m really digging Billie Eillish’s vibe and this new girl Charlotte Lawrence. Their lyrics are really real.
If you were going to be stranded on a deserted island forever, what musical item would you take with you and why?
Besides my voice, ha, a piano so I could just write and sing music whenever.
If your music was going to be featured on any TV show that is currently on right now, which would you love it to be on? Or if you prefer, what is a movie that you love that you wish your music was featured in?
Oooh that’s a toughy. I grew up on CW shows, so Riverdale would be cool or like any badass action chick film.
At the end of the day, what do you hope your fans take away from your music?
I hope that when they listen to my music they feel empowered and not alone. I hope they can relate to my experiences in their own way, and just feel something, whatever it may be.
