Jennifer Juan is a cultural melting pot of an artist. She is a writer, a musician, a producer, a film maker and a podcast host, currently residing in the Kent countryside, but dreaming of the ocean. A tornado of darkness and delicacy, Juan creates engaging and powerful projects, using a variety of mediums and platforms, each dripping with her signature playful, yet powerful style of writing. Beginning her journey as an artist as a teenager, Juan graduated from The University of Greenwich in 2013, and began sharing her work on her personal website, as well as through social media, posting written poetry and video projects. In 2017, Juan began producing a weekly podcast, sharing her poetry, insights into her writing techniques, and released several printed volumes of poetry, including the critically acclaimed “Home Wrecker”. 2017 also saw Juan’s first venture into music, with her releasing her debut single “Past Preston”, a haunting instrumental track that was the first step to the immersive cross media project, “Drowning In Us”, an evocative and atmospheric narration of star crossed lovers, told through poetry, short stories, film and music. Amassing over 29,000 listeners on Spotify alone, in her first year as an independent recording artist, Juan continues her journey as an artist, with her latest release, Subliminals. Juan has written and released several acclaimed poetry collections, including Home Wrecker, 27, With A White Lighter and the Amazon Bestseller, Ol’ Brown Eyes Is Back. Juan also hosts the podcast “Sincerely, Jennifer x”, an immersive look at her poetry, writing process, and her life so far.
It's a way to bring stories to life in a new way.
I want to just create things that make me happy and hopefully that other people enjoy too.
I'd want everyone to have the same educational opportunities. Learning can change the entire course of your life, but too many young people don't have the chance to go to school.
All Summer Long by The Beach Boys. My Grandad had a lot of vinyls that I'd listen to, and I'd sit and listen to that song over and over again for hours.
I love The Beach Boys more than probably anyone or anything in the world. They really have a song for everything. I love Bobby Vee and Ritchie Valens too.
I write poetry too, and sometimes, I write something, and I want to explore it more in another way, that's how most of my songs start.
That love is forever, and that there is always room for cinematic strings.
Like the whole world is ending, but in a good way.
I think there are a lot more opportunities for people to get their work out there, but I think there is a lot of exploitation of musicians, and that's sad.
I'm really enjoying it so far, it's a great environment.
Post production. It's my least favourite thing to do, but I love the end result, so...
I try to get out and see local bands and artists when I can, and I like to discover new artists online to add to my playlists.
Patience, perseverance and a desire to be true to themselves.
I really like Arthur The Guitarist and t^bi on Soundcloud. They're doing some really unique stuff.
