JARETT does an exceptional job at reminding us to be grateful for the life we are living, and to resist wishing our time away while dreaming about running off with a “Mermaid.”
Congratulations on the release of your latest single, “Mermaid.” You use such a unique sense of inspiration to bring this song to life. We love it! How did it come to be that the 1989 Disney movie The Little Mermaid, brought you to this place with a hit record?
Thank you! The movie was definitely an inspiration, but the love of summer, beaches, the Caribbean, my most recent trip to Barbados with my fiancee in Dec 2019, are all inspirations too.
Could you please share a glimpse into what the creative process looked like when fashioning together “Mermaid”?
In mythology, mermaids are described as mysterious women of the sea with exquisite features, who often lead sailors astray with their charming and seductive ways. The tune “Mermaid” brings those themes to life, all the while pulling us in with the presumption of fun and adventure. Escaping the city life, unwinding with weed and rum—paired with beautiful women—makes for a good time in the sunshine! But, those revelry moments do not last forever and eventually come to an end.
With your two tracks released falling into the simmering, tropical essence of soundwaves, how would you compare this song to your debut release ‘Travel’? What are some similarities and differences you encounter throughout the process?
Mermaid is textured with Caribbean-inspired steel drum sounds to give it the full-on vacation vibe, blending electronic and hip-hop styles, whereas travel is more of a house tropical song.
What is your mission statement as an artist?
To perform at beaches all over the world and bring that same warm, positive, uplifting energy to whoever wants/needs it.
