CHECK BACK FOR THE NEW SINGLE
“JJ” also known as Jadelyn Van Winkle is a 18 year old young woman from the suburbs of Pennsylvania. She was always well known around her school. She was involved in a lot of activities in school. Her interest in music was helped by her family. She grew up with a house full of music and musician.It truly no surprise that she picked it to pursue. She was amazing at softball but ,deep down, that is not where her heart lies when she thought of what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. She knew that music was the avenue that she wanted to pursue. It was a side of her a lot of her close friends and extended family didn’t even know about. She plays guitar and would quietly work on her songs and covers. She posted tiny snippets on Instagram. She is now the most consistent that she’s ever been.Before it was just a couple snippets here and there,she ended up devoting her whole account this year. As time went on she got more and more confident in what she wanted to do. But she had a couple road bumps on the way. Growing up at the peak of social media it is not surprising that one makes new insecurities and issues from it. As JJ forms from a teen to a young woman she struggles with a lot of insecurities and anxiety. Those things would push her away from using a little while. It made her avoid what she loved doing. Until she decided to flip the narrative. She decided that she didn’t want anything to stop her from her love. She wanted to gain and take back her confidence. She wanted to learn the steps in order to become more confident within herself so that she could share it to others. She took a lot of time for self improvement and self discovery. For her to actually find out that we are all special and unique in our own way. That the game of comparisons will eat at young girls’ insecurities if they are not told how special they are. She wanted people to feel great about themselves and within themselves through her music. So she fell in love with it again and began writing some songs. She wants to always have a personal touch with her fans. She knows how I felt being a young girl in this age of social media. She never wanted her fans to feel lonely without any guidance or advice. She wants them to know that she is in their corner rooting and saluting for them every step of the way of fighting their true voice and confidence. She is like her fans big sister. She’s always there for guidance and she’s always there to lift them up. She displays that through her music. How and what she chooses to write about. She knows that her young fans are watching her as she always wants to make the best impression .She wants to be the representation she never had. She is not just some automated artist. She has good days and bad ones. She is just like all of us. We are just like her.
