Emotion is at the heart of Jasmine Thompson’s music. Each song resonates with feeling and offers the listener a sense of sincere cathartic release, reflecting her experiences onto audience’s own. The 16-year-old musician, who grew up in Central London, may be young, but she’s also been through a lot and she spends much of her time considering how life works and why we do the things we do.
Jasmine’s EP Wonderland, her second following 2015’s Adore, is about London itself, recounting growing up and coming of age in the city. It’s about the confusion one feels as a young adult – or, even, as a grown-up – and it affirms that there’s something ultimately sweet about not really knowing
The songs on the EP were recorded over the past year and a half, in Los Angeles, London and Stockholm. Jasmine partnered with a selection of songwriters and producers, who helped her create a series of tracks that reflects the highs and lows of being a teenager. These co-writers include Meghan Trainor, Ross Golan, Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter, Max Martin's Wolfcousins, Johan Carlsson and Mark Crew, all of whom brought fresh, exciting perspectives to the project.
Her soaring, impassioned voice is always filled with feeling, whether she’s singing her own music or being featured on dance tracks for artists Robin Schultz, DJ Felix Jaehn and others. It’s the sort of memorable voice that’s earned accolades from Aviici, Passenger and Trainor, among others, and brought her over 1 billion total streams and over 5.7 million monthly Spotify listeners worldwide. Her music video for “Adore,” the single off her previous album, has over 30 million views on YouTube, where she currently has 2.6 million subscribers and one billion views collectively.
