#TalkToJen – When did you write your first song? What inspired it?

Q: When did you write your first song? What inspired it?
A: I wrote my first real song when I was about 10 years old and it was about a boy. I was in middle school and I had a crush on a boy and didn’t want him to know so I wrote my first “real” song called “Secret” Oddly enough, it was foreshadowing of my songwriting because I never told anyone I wrote songs until sophomore year of high school when I wrote a song for my parents 25th wedding anniversary. My parents were floored and I told them “well I have 100 more songs I wrote, now what”
I had written what I call, silly songs when I was younger but they were about princess and fairies, nothing real. So when I came to my parents with “real” songs they didn’t know what to think. So I found a local producer, recorded some of my music and entered as many song contests as I could find and kept winning! I must have been doing something right.
