Behind the Music of Jena Douglas
Like a lot of introverts, I've struggled with crowds,
but on occasion friends would coach me into making a journey out of my comfort zone.
In 1982, my friends took me to see The Who at the Colosseum. I was there with 60,000 fans, singing loudly,
“see me, feel me, touch me, heal me…”
We were all belting out our souls, it was magic
and this introvert had a strange feeling of group consciousness “a oneness” and so… at that moment it was like, the heavens opened up and a shaft of light rained down upon me proclaiming, “You shall be a songwriter.”
So, since 1982, still an introvert, I’ve been focused on writing songs that are personal, dynamic and inspiring;
I call them… POWER BALLADS.
