In her own words, Jaïnda shares the inspiration behind her music: "I was very young when I wrote my debut single, 'Lighthouse.' It's about the feeling of not belonging anywhere and not knowing who to trust. My response was trying hard to be a part of something, which turned out to be not such a good idea. The positive thing was that writing and singing 'Lighthouse' made me realize who I am and who I want to be." This deeply personal approach to songwriting is evident in her music, connecting with listeners on a profound level.
With "Cyanide & Oxygen" and her upcoming EP, Jaïnda is poised to make a significant mark on the music scene. Her work on the EP, crafted in collaboration with Jonathan Quarmby (known for his work with Kovacs, Ziggy Marley, Lewis Capaldi, James Arthur), promises to be a diverse and deeply personal collection of songs that will further showcase her remarkable talent.
