Rancho Cucamonga, California (The Hollywood Times) 03/11/2021 – “My new song is a true story of what I learned about my family during this pandemic.” JD Reynolds told The Hollywood Times during a Zoom conversation.
We had the opportunity to catch up with JD Reynolds in her car in Australia. It was great to learn about her love for music and how she enjoys songwriter to tell her stories about life.
Enjoy our conversation here, it sure is entertaining.
Her new single “This Year” is really a great song for all us to have the opportunity to listen too. I can see where the year 2020 with the pandemic brought us together in ways we may have not been ready for. To know that having difficulties with our family members does not always seem to be the happy memories we were hoping for. I applaud her for being honest and putting her feelings into a song that makes up appreciate her truth in her family dynamics.
“Watch out Nashville, here comes JD Reynolds from down under and she will bring her signature country sounds and take us all by storm. “This Year” single is going to be the international anthem for the world of 2020 Covid-19 pandemic. It is packed with raw emotions that most of us keep bottled up when it comes to family or even our friends, combined with Bluegrass banjo, Rock and Roll guitar and her distinctive God given voice to seal it up.
