In The Spotlight

Jen Awad – “Basic Bitch”

There are two distinct facets to this multi-talented half Egyptian, half Peruvian powerhouse. Self-taught on vocals, piano, guitar and bass, she’s a Los-Angeles-based singer and songwriter with a dynamic and combustible vocal prowess, which blends the sass and insensity of Etta James and Tina Turner. She is also an accomplished fashion designer, dressing stars such as Bebe Rexha and Kali Uchis.

Her latest single is like a flavorsome bowl of fiery, aromatic blues with a piquant edge. Backed by an eight-piece band with a blistering horn section, she’s taken vintage-style rhythm and blues and sauteed it in a hot peppery sauce, to give it even more zing. Her impassioned dynamite vocals, soaked in retro-soul spice, set the zesty melody alight and cook up an appetizing dish full of fire.
