The Compelling Story Behind Jessie Kol's New Single "Something on Your Mind"
August 12, 2016
When offered the opportunity to record a song for a major motion picture company to consider using in their upcoming movie, Jessie Kol decided to take a shot and jump at the chance. What came out of the experience ended up being what Jessie Kol considers one of their finest and most emotional recordings yet. Breathing new life into the 1971 Karen Dalton original, Jessie Kol blends Americana roots instrumentation with stunning vocal performance, giving the listener a mesmerizing and impassioned music experience.
Jessie Kol's new song "Something On Your Mind" is a beautifully moving song with the simple yet profound message, "never give up." As the lyric repeats, "you can't make it without ever even trying."
Jessie Kol says, "We were asked to record this song for Disney's remake of the classic movie Pete's Dragon. We decided to take the risk and pour our hearts into recreating this beautiful song that had a simple message of never giving up and persevering in spite of what you feel. We soon heard back from the executive in charge of music and found out that our song was a top contender for the spot in the movie and we were thrilled! In the end, however, they decided to go a different direction. We were disappointed, but we felt strongly that the song had a message that needed to be heard, so we decided to turn it into our next musical release. We feel this song is a reflection of our own lives and we're sure many others will be able to identify with it's message, as well. We all face hardship and have the choice to give up or keep going."
