Tidbits about song and video- I wrote this over two trips to Japan. The initial idea came from lavender bathwater my first time in Tokyo. 

The second time around I travelled to an onsen in the mountains and was soaking in this beautiful outdoor pool in the mist, hoping to feel exalted or something.. of course, I didn’t, and actually felt kind of miserable.. but that in and of itself was sort of the transcendent moment! This is all coupled with a vision of a Hollywood party (specifically one in Laurel Canyon that Father John Misty might host…), and feeling excluded, laughing at the ridiculousness of it all… yet also feeling bad about NOT being included and wishing to have a piece of the pie. For the video, we focused on sex/racial tensions.



Jett’s work is coloured by themes such as family, her identity as a mixed heritage woman, and the complexities of colonial history. “Our identities are coloured by the context in which we are in – the way we grow up, our appearance, and our basic interests and beliefs”. It is through this belief that she channels her desire to seek out the true roots of individuality.
Sonically influenced by a variety of sounds from different eras, Jett’s music is built from pieces of the past with an essence of the future. With the desire to spark conversations about identity, the singer/songwriter confides, “I am inspired to tell not only my and my family’s histories, but a broader story of culture – to be a conduit for those stories and to find more innovative ways to express them.”

Empowered by issues surrounding women’s rights, social and political reform and questions around justice, Jett hopes to contribute towards conversations for affecting change. Having performed at prestigious venues including the renown Carnegie Hall, Jett Kwong is ready for the next instalment of her journey.
