“One Hit Wonders” By Jenn Grant ft: Ria Mae
Jenn Grant has released “One Hit Wonders,” the latest single off the singer/songwriter’s forthcoming LP Champagne Problems, due out June 21, 2023.The track was written and performed with Ria Mae and long-time collaborator Daniel Ledwell. Of the song Jenn notes: “Writing with Ria and Daniel Ledwell for this project was one of the funniest experiences of all time. Ria is such a massive talent, and she is so quick and funny; she’s like a song whip.
We ended up re-writing the verses a bunch of times because at one point they were just absolutely crazy. But this song has turned into something that is amazing and fun but that also has real value and strength behind the words for women song makers everywhere. I loved the whole thing from friendship to song creation to video. Can’t wait to unleash this one out into the world. I may light firecrackers when it happens.”
Ria Mae goes on to say: “Jenn is a capital ‘A ‘Artist. She’s a talented writer who knows when to throw the rules out the window. I loved working with her. She’s so open and generous in collaboration and makes creating feel like play. I admire her talents and career and am so happy to be a part of this album.”
The song, is accompanied by a video, directed by collaborator Daniel Ledwell, on the creation and video Daniel includes, “writing this track with Jenn and Ria was so fun. I always love to write with the bass as opposed to the guitar. So I started playing a bass line and they just started riffing. it arrived as a fun pop song…but the lyrics address their place in the music industry mid-career, and as mothers.”
As they wrote the lyrics they would basically also come up with ideas for a fun video. We wanted it to be fun and tongue in cheek, the only challenge with the video was making our driveway on a rainy Nova Scotian April day resemble anything close to summer.
