Jess Clinton: “The Runaway”

By: Jack Anderson

As the daughter of a Hollywood actress and an L.A. film composer, Jess Clinton was exposed to the studio life earlier than most. Clinton’s undying love of creative expression led her to an affection for guitar, voice lessons, an art obsession, and bouts of secret songwriting. When she moved to NYU, Clinton’s fascination for folk, rock, musical narratives, theatrical vocals and Celtic music all collided and she’s set to bear it all on her upcoming album, Real Glass Heart.

This immensely intimate record gives off vibes similar to Lucius or PJ Harvey and while Real Glass Heart isn’t out until July, you can get a clear view of the Brooklyn songwriter’s energy with the LP’s penultimate track, “The Runaway“!
