Jack Trades & Heather Janssen Drop ‘On My Mind’, Out Now
Calgary-based creative force Jack Trades returns to the release radar alongside fellow Canadian musician Heather Janssen with ‘On My Mind’. The esteemed powerhouse’s latest directly follows his last Physical Presents release ‘Change Your Mind’ from earlier this March, and also serves as the talent’s fourth musical offering of 2021. Out now via Physical Presents, ‘On My Mind’ is available to listen to across all streaming platforms.
The sprightly tune begins with a bouncy bassline that immediately enters the sonic space, rife with a palpably raw energy that’s as equally as enticing as it is intense. Janssen’s melodious vocal flows throughout, and is paired perfectly alongside the track’s driving ambiance. Propulsively driving, it maintains its high energy from start-to-finish with ease. The rich lyricism paints a vivid picture of strained lovers, connecting with the listener on a deep, heartfelt level with each passing second. Funky, feel-good sensibilities characterize the majority of the release, a quintessential electronic dance music gem that marks a prime addition to Jack Trades and Heather Janssen’s respective back-catalogs.
“I am an absolute sucker for songs that tackle the subject of relationships. Part of the reason being, we definitely grow and mature along the way but the truth is sometimes you just never get over that one special person. After ‘Kill Me Slowly’ it was a no-brainer in reaching out to Heather Janssen for a follow-up! No surprise here, she nails it yet again with her flawless writing, singing and emotion. Production wise, kept it very balanced to support her strong vocals but adding some dance piano elements to really give it some character. Although it took too many changes to get it right, was definitely worth it in the end. Hope you like the song as much as we do!” – Jack Trades

“’On My Mind’ was such a natural project to be a part of. Not only was I excited to get to work with Jack again but being in quarantine at the time and having space to think about relationships in my own life, it naturally just wrote itself. I think because it comes from an authentic place, listeners are going to be able to feel that and relate to it in their own way.
