‘FAINT OF HEART’
THE NEW SINGLE ‘FAINT OF HEART’ OUT NOW · NEW ALBUM, ‘REVIVAL’ OUT MAY 4 · CURRENTLY PERFORMING LIVE ACROSS THE UK – FULL DATES BELOW
‘Faint of Heart’ is the stunning new single from Jenn Bostic, available from March 8. It’s the latest track taken from her upcoming album Revival, out May 4th, and is a personal favourite of Jenn’s - “It shares my story in the most vulnerable way. When you’re chasing a dream, doubt is inevitable, but if you believe you’re chasing your purpose, then it doesn’t matter how many times you circle the mountain, you have to keep circling.”
‘Faint of Heart’ is also a special release as 50% of all proceeds from the song will be given to the charity, Whole Planet Foundation throughout the month of March. This year Jenn has the honour of being the Artist Ambassador of the Southwest Invasion benefiting Whole Planet foundation, at SXSW in Austin, Texas. The annual concert series returns to SXSW on March 15-17, and new to this year’s event is the Artist Ambassador, a role Jenn was born to play. With her compassion and commitment to helping those less fortunate, Jenn was a natural pick for the role. “I am super-excited to be the first Artist Ambassador,” says Jenn. “Whole Planet’s mission is to alleviate local and global poverty through microcredit and I am thrilled to be able to call attention to their important work through my music.”
Jenn will be involved in all aspects of the event from introducing artist performances to doing backstage interviews with musicians, holding live Q&As on her social media channels and performing. She opens the event performing on the Main Stage, Thursday, March 15th, and she’ll be singing ‘Faint of Heart’ each day of the festival.
With her new album ‘Revival’, produced by six-time Grammy award winner, Paul Salveson, Jenn returns with the blend of blues, soul, country, pop and gospel that’s already won her an army of fans. It’s her most authentic album yet, an honest, soulful and empowering collection about overcoming any obstacle that life throws at you.
It follows an already impressive career, which has included an appearance on BBC Breakfast in 2012, performing her breakthrough single Jealous of the Angels. Written for her late father, the song was championed by both Smooth Radio and BBC Radio 2 and hit Number 1 on the singer songwriter chart, with now over 3 million views on YouTube.
In 2015 she was invited to perform on Songs of Praise, singing her track Little Grace from her album Faithful. She was the First American Independent Artist to have their first three singles playlisted at BBC Radio 2. In 2012 she was the recipient of five Independent Country Music Association Awards including “Best Songwriter,” “Best Female Artist” and “Overall Winner.” She had the honor of performing on Weekend Wogan for the late Sir Terry as part of a special St. Patrick’s Day show, as well as Good Morning Sunday.
