Jennings concept was great, different, simple but eccentric. Just what we like! With limited time we recce’d locations, found a piano (thanks to @dan_anchorbaby), had a cage built (thanks to @atomanable) (that could have sides removed easily), sourced extras, shot, cut, graded and delivered quickly. Shame it had to sit on the shelf for a year before it was released, but such is the music industry. A total pleasure to work on, and we’re so happy to have been a part of bringing JC’s idea to life.
Since writing his first songs at the tender age of seven, he has gone on to craft a unique - and eccentric - pop voice. It is this distinctive voice that got Jennings to SXSW 2017, gaining the attention of a wider global audience with shows at The Apple Music House and the BBC British Music Embassy.
Whether the result of his influences, travels or tendency towards the obtuse, one thing is clear; in an era of copycat faux-musicality, Jennings Couch is a refreshingly unique proposition.
Born in the wilderness of New York City, raised in the quiet tranquillity of rural England and made on the streets of West London, Jennings Couch is an artist who embodies the virtues of his environments.
