Since successfully plunging into her full-time music career, singer-songwriter Jess Weimer has developed and completed her first EP Until You Drop. This unique and catchy release is indie-pop driven with jazzy influences, highlighting Weimer’s clean vocals and songwriting prowess. The songs of Until You Drop showcase a musical range varying from soulful vocals, to upbeat instrumentals, to dynamic production—all while maintaining a signature Jess Weimer sound. You can now find Until You Drop on Spotify, iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon Music.
Produced by the dynamic duo Beto Vargas and Mert Özcan at The Record House, Until You Drop paints a powerful story with each song. Title single, Until You Drop, is full of hauntingly captivating beats and presents a relevant message regarding the harmful standards associated with body image. The song challenges the acceptance of said standards with clever word play and mesmerizing melodies. “We’ve barely scratched the surface of questioning harmful social norms. It’s time to set boundaries on superficiality for our audiences and give them something with a quality message to sing along to,” says Weimer. “I want my music to resonate with people because it encapsulates the human experience and reminds everyone that we’re never alone. It’s all going to work out.”
The music video for Telltale Signs, Weimer’s first single, was released in early 2016 and conveys the importance of finding love in a partner that fully embraces who you are without expecting you to alter yourself. Each song on the EP stands alone with unique qualities but they all collectively fit together in a thoughtful narrative. Some tracks have a jazzier, live feel with a full band while others feature poignant poppy mixtures of complex production and instrumentation.
In addition to singing and writing, Jess Weimer is also a violinist, guitarist, and a passionate dreamer. She left her hometown of Wichita, Kansas to pursue her dreams in Los Angeles. She has an eclectic musical background including a bluegrass-fiddle band, musical theater, and chamber orchestra. Weimer’s inspirations vary from Ella Fitzgerald and Amy Winehouse to Lorde and Ingrid Michaelson. When she’s not making music, you can find her learning a new language, advocating for positivity and social justice, or following along with an aerobics workout video from the ’80’s. Her positive spirit and zest for life is nothing short of contagious.
After having the music video for Telltale Signs under her belt, and freshly releasing her first EP, Until You Drop, Weimer is eager to make more music and keep the ball rolling. Her music video can be viewed on YouTube. The EP is available on Spotify, iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon.
