Listen to ‘Candied Daylight’, the new song from New York folk singer, songwriter, and producer Jennah Bell – an up-and-coming performer who has already gained the support of artists like Questlove and Robert Glasper. Her camp say: “A true singer / songwriter / producer and performer, Jennah composed, wrote and arranged the music here – not only that, but she funded the recordings & mastering out of her own pocket. She mixes various styles together – her vocals & melodies have some country twang to them, with shades of bluegrass and folk coloring the edges, but there is also a distinct R&B / Soul angle to this that gives this song it’s unique DNA and makes it a true representation & amalgamation of American music & styles.” They add, “‘Candied Daylight’ is, naturally, saccharine & playful, it’s lyrics touching on the sweet & youthful side of life”.
