Band & Musician News - Jessica Leigh releases epic new summer anthem, 'my way'

Jessica Leigh releases epic new summer anthem, 'my way'

25 November 2022 - 0 Comments

Super talented, Wellington-based singer and songwriter Jessica Leigh has today dropped a soaring summer anthem, my way.

Sonically, my way is a bold and epic track with big vibrant synths and an upbeat tempo - the perfect soundtrack for a festival roadie. But scratch beneath the surface and you’ll uncover a song with lyrical depth and empowerment that’s sure to resonate with many.

my way stemmed from having the worst mental health year of my life, where everything felt incredibly difficult and it seemed like the world was against me,” explains Jessica.

“The first half of the song ruminates on being in this incredibly bad headspace and just wanting something to go right in life, before switching it up in the bridge and deciding to make things go right for yourself. It’s about falling back in love with who you are and the things that make you happy, ultimately depicting a grand self-reclamation.”

The song was recorded, mixed, and mastered by UK producer and engineer Jules Evans, who has worked with legends such as Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood. It’s accompanied by a lyric video, which is premiering now on TheBestPop. Watch here.

my way follows the release of Jessica’s hugely successful 2021 single Summer Royalty from her EP summerland. It also makes way for a string of more singles to follow.

“The upbeat, warm, synth heavy pop sound of my way is a good indication of what people can expect from my music in the future,” says Jessica, whose catalogue to date showcases an artist who has grown up with an adoration of art, music, and poetry. Born in Nelson, but now based in Wellington, Jessica began writing and producing music at the age of 11, finding her home in pop music – often championing a chorus of 80's-inspired synths, warm guitars and anthemic drums.

Jessica’s songs are inspired by the technicolor, emotional spectrum of youth and the storytelling within them often depicts vibrant, visceral coming-of-age narratives, reflecting on themes such as young love, friendship, growing pains and everything in between.

Jessica won a regional songwriting competition in 2019 and officially began releasing music shortly after. She released her debut EP 17 in 2020 and followed it up with a sophomore EP summerland in 2021.
