Hawaiian singer songwriter Jasmine Crowe is far more than just a pretty face. The winner two years consecutively of the UK Songwriting Contest, as well as being a multi-instrumentalist equally skilled on piano, acoustic guitar, and violin, Crowe has a powerful, radio ready voice, and a knack for intellgent pop storytelling, as well as a gift for putting hooks to work in her independent releases. Her song, ‘Breaking Things’ is her latest track.
Crowe and co-producer/arranger Josh Anderson began collaborating in 2014, and have impressed juries, critics, and audiences alike. In 2015 they took the runner-up trophy at the International Songwriting Competition with the track, ‘Phoenix Rising’, while in 2016 the song, ‘Lightning In a Bottle’ won the UK Songwriting Contest outright. They’ve had other accolades, including a finals place in the 20th Annual USA Songwriting Competition, and nominations in categories across the pop spectrum, including Top 40, love songs, dance-pop, electronic-pop, and other sub-genres.
‘Breaking Things’ is a fast and furious track with a passionate vocal and an emotionally forthright lyric, coupled with an irresistable dance beat. The video finds Jasmine out in the desert, walking barefoot over the sand and scrublands, while catching herself in reflective moments in a motel room, out on an empty highway. She’s been done wrong by a man, and she can’t seem to quit him. The clip has the glorious pastel colours of America’s wild west, and call to mind the cinematography of Netflix original series, ‘Breaking Bad’.
