Jazz Robertson is a Colorado based songwriter, producer and musician with a unique thumbprint in today’s pop scene. Known for her orchestra forward production and conversational lyrics, she broke traditional pop mold with her 2021 debut as an artist.
At 10 years old, Jazz began as a musician playing the violin. Her talents earned a chair in the youth county orchestra and set a solid foundation for her string-driven sound to come. Though musicianship came first, she spent most of her teen years focused on a hobby of writing free verse poetry. She began to dabble with piano and guitar in her late teens, and a passion for songwriting then quickly followed. At 19 years old she was accepted into Berklee College of Music, which helped to hone her artistic skills and grow her capacity as a writer.
In 2012, Jazz was invited to work as an intern at a Denver recording studio. It was here she had her first experience as a demo vocalist and fell in love with the recording process. Jazz continued on as a hobby writer for a number of years before studying any music production. She now uses her home studio to write and produce her original demos, which she feels gives her greater control and connection to her art. Jazz’s musical influences are incredibly diverse. A skim through her library would find artists such as the Beatles, My Chemical Romance, Ariana Grande, Tate McRae, Linkin Park and Ed Sheeran. She considers herself a music lover and pulls inspiration from a wide variety of genres and styles.
Jazz’s debut single ‘Collide’ set a solid foundation for her debut as an artist in July 2021. Claiming over 50,000 streams since its release, the track went on to receive international airplay. From New York City, to Sweden, Australia and Brazil, ‘Collide’s’ radio exposure caught the attention of a wide audience. Her follow-up single ‘Hurricane’ achieved similar results, while showcasing a more alternative side to her pop influences.
Inspired most by human emotion, all of her songs are autobiographical. Jazz’s intimate lyricism gravitates towards her more difficult life experiences. She believes hardship is a key factor in molding who we are meant to be as individuals, and is unapologetically vulnerable in disclosing her own journey. Authenticity is the foundation for her artistry. Jazz’s ability to honor and validate unique human experience keeps her music relatable and grounded in reality. Her overarching ambition is to empower people through her gift by telling her story, her way. Jazz has a drive, focus, and tenacity that will undoubtedly cause her to become a force to be reckoned with in the independent pop circuit.
"I'm honestly not entirely sure where this journey is taking me. I write to process what I've gone through, a form of journaling. If along the way I can inspire someone to own their truth or validate their experience, then awesome! We all go through things differently, and I don't think anyone should have to fear being judged or isolated for being authentic. You'd be surprised how many people are experiencing the same thing you are, we just shame ourselves into thinking we're alone, when we're not."
