""The Blast Spotlight: Jessi Jae Joplin""

Check out our Blast one one one interview with Blast featured artist Jessi Jae Joplin.

The Giant Blast: How would you describe yourself as an artist?
Jessi Jae Joplin: Indescribable.

The Giant Blast: What does Jessi Jae Joplin get into outside of music?
Jessi Jae Joplin: Besides music, I am extremely passionate about fashion. I’ve worked in fashion here in LA and also when I lived in New York City for fashion designers and magazines. I definitely have a few fashion “projects” in the works that I’m very excited about!

The Giant Blast: Who do you listen to in your spare time?
Jessi Jae Joplin: I listen to a lot of “oldies” like The Beatles, The Doors, The Beach Boys, Simon & Garfunkel and Queen. The contemporary music I listen to mostly consists of Phoenix, Miike Snow, Empire of the Sun, Spoon, Passion Pit, MGMT, Daft Punk, Calvin Harris, Gorillaz and Justice. That is just a small portion though. I’m constantly going to festivals and concert and discovering new bands.

The Giant Blast: What type of beats bring out the best in what you do?
Jessie Jae Joplin: I’ve always been really into electronic beats with an 80s flare.

The Giant Blast: Who would you like to work with in the future?
Jessi Jae Joplin: I would absolutely LOVE to work with Calvin Harris. I am such an admirer of his work. Miike Snow (also known as the crazy/amazing production team Bloodshy & Avant) would also be pretty dope to work with. I’m a huge fan of the songs they’ve produced for other artists, not to mention their own band is one of my all time favorites.

The Giant Blast: Speaking of the future, where do you see yourself as an artist in 5 years?
Jessi Jae Joplin: I still want to be heavily involved in music and the arts. Just on a larger scale. A few records under my belt and being involved in fashion design and magazines.

The Giant Blast: Getting back to the present, what are you working on right now?
Jessi Jae Joplin: Right now I’m writing and recording new music, filming a webisode series which will air online this month and also planning a tour!

The Giant Blast: For those that haven't seen you perform live, how would you describe a Jessi Jae Joplin show?
Jessi Jae Joplin: Well every show is different, but what remains constant is the energy we bring to the stage. Our shows are not only fun for the audience, but we have a great time too! We try to interact with the crowd and I definitely bring my wild and crazy personality to the stage :)

The Giant Blast: Anything else you would like to plug, any shouts?
Jessi Jae Joplin: Everyone stay tuned for new, original music coming soon! Also subscribe to http://www.youtube.com/jessijaejoplin, to tune into our webisodes airing later this month! - The Giant Blast - The Blast Blog
