Canadian-born, Brooklyn-based Indie Dream Pop artist Jenny Kern previously worked for filmmakers Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig, before eventually becoming a producer in the film and television industry. In 2018, Kern decided to take a leap of faith and pursue her passion for music full-time. Kern tends to cover topics such as “anxiety, depression, getting older, interpersonal relationships, gratitude, love and loss.”

Kern shares:

I think most people assume that my music skews toward lyrical sadness but I always try to inject a hopeful undercurrent to it. I want people to feel like there’s hope and just because something feels heavy doesn’t mean that it’s going to be that way forever.

Her latest single, “Move On”, acknowledges the need to let go of someone or something.

The songwriter adds about the new track:

This song is about moving on after the end of a relationship. It’s an anthem, a sort of charging forward and getting to understand what you want. At first you don’t know how to navigate the emotions that are hitting you in the moment so the lyrics toy with that vulnerability. But ultimately it’s an empowering way to realize you can heal yourself.

Sonically, “Move On” takes inspiration from the likes of LEON, Minke, Holly Humberstone and Sasha Alex Sloan.
