Swedish Siren Jessica Manning Gives Life on "Homestead" Video [Premiere]
Drawing influence from Frank Ocean, Little Dragon and Kevin Garrett — Jessica Manning has cultivated herself as an alternative-R&B artist with deeply rich soul. After teaching herself how to play the guitar + write her own songs, this offspring of a soul-singing father went from posting original videos on YouTube to conceiving beautiful clips for mass consumption. With that said, we’re ecstatic to premiere “Homestead,” a video directed + edited by Cherith Simmons from Jessica’s What If I Run album.
Fueled by a successful Kickstarter campaign, Jessica Manning recorded What If I Run with producer Brett Bullion in Minneapolis + is scheduled for release in Feb. 2017. “Homestead,” much like the album, is an accurate representation of who and where Jessica is at in her life today. Speaking on issues such as medical struggles, financial woes and family deaths — this song focuses on being beautiful + honest instead of allowing the negativity traumatize one’s life.
Listen to this crystal clear, healing and uplifting track + allow “Homestead” to draw you in by pressing play on the video below.
