London-based artist Jasmine Thompson has been featured on some of the world’s top dance tracks, including Felix Jaehn’s “Ain’t Nobody (Loves Me Better,)” and Robin Schulz’s “Sun Goes Down.”
Now as 2020 rolls on, the 19-year-old singer/songwriter is showing no signs of slowing down. Earlier this year she released the video to her track ‘Love For the Lonely,’ and just in time for summer listening she’s dropped another upbeat anthem, ‘Funny.’
While hitting the recording studio hasn’t been possible due to lockdowns, Thompson isn’t a stranger to getting her creative juices flowing at home. She got her start using the tried and true modern YouTube method, which garnered her an enthusiastic following. While she’s now ascended past her beginnings, she says that during this time, all of her at-home recording equipment have come in real handy once again. Thompson has been relying on her roommate (a law student,) to help out with music video camera work and creative direction, rather than outsourcing a fancy film crew.
As she celebrates the recent release of her newest at-home video ‘Funny,’ The Knockturnal got the chance to discuss the filming process with Thompson, along with what it was like working with Zedd, and how she secured a Lewis Capaldi cameo in the video. Check out the full interview above!
