about

In 2016 Jennifer got hold of a ukulele and immediately felt the inspiration to write new music. The result of her writing sessions are four beautiful songs about the magic of each season.

Inspired by old irish love songs and the lifelong wish to be able to breathe underwater, “Underwater Seasons” unfolds its mesmerizing melodies and meditative stories with exceptional skill. From a “Coward in spring” to the summery “Lena in her white shoes”, the broken-hearted “Underwater” or the wintery “Comfort”, the musical journey leads deep into a wistful ocean of sound and emotion.

Recorded mostly in the privacy of her home and with help from studio partner Kyan Bayani on Synthesizer, Jennifer has created a very special record. Her haunting voice lingers over minimal instrumental arrangements; repetitive ukulele patterns harmoniously blend with hypnotizing, dreamlike soundscapes.

Track Name: Coward in spring
Coward in spring

Early morning, I awake,
when the world trembles under my feet,
and the seasons bloom in my backyard.
And the seasons grow in my backyard,
when you come back home
to a coward in spring,
when you come back home.

And the seasons live in my backyard,
in my room.
Where you talk in your sleep
when the seasons shiver in my room.
And the seasons die in my backyard.

And your love dies in my backyard,
in my room,
when you come back home
to a coward in spring.
When you come back home
to a coward in spring,
when you come back home.
Come home.
Track Name: Lena in her white shoes
Lena in her white shoes

I see Lena in her white shoes,
swimming in the sea,
in the sweetest light,
in her white shoes,
in her white shoes.

I see Lena in her white shoes,
singing in the sea,
with the sweetest voice,
in her white shoes,
in her white shoes.

I see Lena in her white shoes,
floating in the sea,
in the sweetest water,
in her white shoes,
in her white shoes.

Lena in her white shoes,
promised to the sea,
Lena in her white shoes,
crying in the sea,
Lena in her white shoes,
broken by the sea,
in her white shoes,
in her white shoes.
Track Name: Underwater
Underwater

You say “I love you”,
you are my friend,
underwater,
underwater.

There’s a place down in the reef,
where you will never find me,
when I say “I’m sorry
for the mess I leave behind”,
underwater,
underwater.

You are my friend,
when I say “I love you”,
underwater,
underwater,
and the guilt you left behind.

But this time you will fail,
and let me swim away,
to the place deep in the reef,
so I can breathe again,
underwater,
in my shelter,
underwater,
in my shelter,
underwater.
Track Name: Comfort
Comfort

How do you mend
a broken heart?
How will I
comfort you?

Your green eyes,
your vague smile,
the little scar
on your upper lip.

And the water
is telling me,
a fairy tale
about the sea,
who fell in love
with the moon.

Your green eyes,
your vague smile,
the little scar,
your fading shadow.

Will the water
comfort me?
And mend my broken heart
and marry me?
Or will the water
burry me,
in the sea,
in the water.
