Singer/songwriter Whitney Ann Jenkins delves into "Intricacies" of world music
(Published: July 29, 2020)

Singer/songwriter Whitney Ann Jenkins has just dropped her new single "Intricacies" on all streaming platforms. This world-jazz track dives into a variety of different genres and influences, keeping an open mind and an astonishing perspective on creativity.

The song has a very strong emotional feel that is also combined with a catchy layer of melodies and quite an atmospheric soundscape. The song begins with an angelic atmospheric pad and it is soon followed by an instrumental section with arpeggiated acoustic guitars and lush piano licks, with some strings in the background. Jenkins' stunning vocals come in soon after, making me think of legendary singers such as Celine Dione, Lara Fabian and Mariah Carey, only to mention a few. Having said that, Jenkins' sound is definitely one-of-a-kind and it escapes easy comparisons.

As the title of this release might suggest, the sound is intricate and sophisticated, but without ever being pretentious. It's really all about finding that right balance between appealing songwriting, genuine performance value, and unique creative ideas. It is not surprising to see that "Intricacies" is garnering some amazing praise. The track has already been met with positive reactions from new listeners, and Jenkins' work is truly phenomenal on this one. Ultimately, "Intricacies" is an inspiring and uplifting number. You will feel immediately more positive after just one listen, and you are definitely going to want to tune in for more from Jenkins and her talented musical collaborators.

What makes the artist's song really stand out is the thrilling composition style, especially when it comes to how the lyrics fall into place with the music. She kicks off "Intricacies" with soothing and warming sounds, and the arrangement quickly takes into a full-on twist. Then, the song's dynamics are expertly designed, building the composition gradually and adding on layer upon layer until there is a massive wall of sound, that still retains its fragile core.

The style and structure of "Intricacies" speaks to Jenkins' maturity as an artist and performer. There isn't one moment that the listener isn't fully immersed in, and every element on this release is truly astonishing.
