Born as Jasmine Bleile in rural Ontario, this Canadian songbird and musician has lived a colorful life. Musically she got her start playing saxophone in a jazz band. She graduated from the police academy, but never walked a beat. Instead she joined a folk-rock band, toured the world and went on hiatus to raise her son. Now she’s returned with a new sound of a blue-eyed soul/R&B meld.
Taken from her triumphant comeback album by the same name, her new single started life as a poem, which musician and producer Paul Cargnello put to music. It’s a sassy blend of vintage soul, 80s funk and a contemporary production. With a frisky beat, sprightly synths and her evocative, retro-dipped vocal mélange, this vivacious jam is a funky, soulful and refreshingly genuine tour de force.
