Jensen McRae is a “word girl”. “Everything I do is about, and in service of, words and stories”, explains the 22-year-old LA Native. As a bi-racial Black and Jewish woman growing up in predominantly white spaces, McRae’s music explores all aspects of identity; from race to gender, as well as delving into issues of depression and unrequited love. Inspired by the likes of Stevie Wonder, Carole King, Alicia Keys, and James Taylor, McRae started her musical journey writing in her bedroom, to then playing the local songwriting circuit in Los Angeles. Her unique voice and songwriting caught the attention of her manager, who connected the young artist with Grammy award-winning producer, Rahki (Eminem, Kendrick Lamar). While finishing her senior year at USC’s Thornton School of Music in 2019, the two were in the studio weekly working on her debut body of work, due out later this year.
Programming coming later this summer. Check back weekly for updates!
