JENNY OWEN YOUNGS: jennyowenyoungs.com
“Singer, songwriter, and natural history enthusiast Jenny Owen Youngs grew up in the forests of northern New Jersey, spent significant stints in Brooklyn and Los Angeles, and is now based in Maine. She has released a number of albums and EPs, both independently and via Nettwerk Records, and her songs have been heard on Bojack Horseman, Grey’s Anatomy, Weeds, Suburgatory, and more. Her latest release, It’s Dangerous to Go Alone, is a collection of four songs inspired by some of Youngs’ favorite gaming pursuits from childhood to present day (Pac-Man, Super Mario Bros, Skyrim, and Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild).
She spends much of her time in various states of collaboration, writing with and for other artists including Pitbull, Briston Maroney, Ingrid Michaelson, Shungudzo, Donnal Missal, and more. Jenny also co-wrote the Panic! at the Disco 5x platinum single “High Hopes.” She is a founding member of the surf-pop quartet L.A. Exes, whose debut album Get Some was released in the summer of 2021.
Jenny also hosts two podcasts: Buffering the Vampire Slayer, a Buffy rewatch podcast that she co-hosts alongside LGBT activist & author Kristin Russo, which features an original recap song for every episode, and has been named on “Best Podcasts” lists by Time, Esquire, and BBC America; and Veronica Mars Investigations, in which Jenny and Helen Zaltzman (celebrated host of podcasts The Allusionist and Answer Me This) hold a magnifying glass to every episode of Veronica Mars, from the beginning.” – Artist Bio
JOHN MARK NELSON: johnmarknelson.com
“John Mark Nelson is a Los Angeles based producer, songwriter, and artist. After being anointed a “wunderkind” by NPR in his teens, dropped by his label in a dizzyingly short timespan, and taking an opportunity to work with Grammy award winning songwriter Dan Wilson in Los Angeles, Nelson finds himself creatively reinvigorated. As a writer and producer, he has co-written/produced recent releases including Devon Cole’s “W.I.T.C.H.” (garnering millions of streams across platforms after going viral on TikTok), Suki Waterhouse’s “Nostalgia,” “sunrise mtn” by Jenny Owen Youngs (he is also featured as an artist), “Movie Star” by Trousdale, “Who Am I Now” by alayna (Nettwerk), “A Little Love” by Julia Pratt and Mt. Joy, and more. He attributes much of his growth in both songwriting and production to his experience at Wilson’s studio working with new artists every day, including the likes of Mitski, Leon Bridges, and Taylor Swift, for whom Nelson served as an engineer on tracks for the re-recorded Red LP. As an artist, he has racked up millions of streams and a sync placement in Devil in Ohio.” – Artist Bio
