Destress with the singer’s carefully curated, calming tracks
words Eve Walker
South London born neo-soul artist Jennifer Clarke, AKA JGrrey, rose to fame in 2017 with a mesmerising live performance on cult acoustic session, Colors. Pairing butter soft vocals with hypnotic melodies sung in her signature South London accent, her stunning visuals encapsulate London youth culture. Above all, JGrrey writes with refreshing honesty, and her lyrics are the kind of poetry that helps us feel our feelings, rather than running away from them.
You heard it here first – the singer has now blessed us with a relaxing Self-medicate playlist made especially for Woo. It is designed to do exactly what it says on the tin – “Music in itself is therapy. The right music can determine your mindset and your perspective. Use it wisely,” JGrrey says. Packed with lesser known songs that you won’t believe you’ve lived this long without, the natural curator has created something truly special with this playlist. Kick back, relax, and discover some true pearls.
Clarke is no stranger to self-medicating. Recently starring in Woo’s The Bigger Trip, she speaks about her experience with struggling to find the right therapist, and turning to micro-dosing as an alternative therapy for depression and anxiety.
She also recently made a short film, All Grrey, in collaboration with JAW, Juicy Couture and Urban Outfitters. This is “an ode to queerness, a promise to take up space in places we are yet to be seen. As WE are ever evolving.”
At only 28 years-old, the world really is in the palm of her hands – quite literally, too, as she has the words “the world” tattooed on – you guessed it – the palm of her hand.
