Rising Australian, Nashville-based country-pop singer Jasmin Bade has released her new single X’s and Y’s. Written with Emily Kroll and Jessi Pugh, this energetic pop-country track was inspired by experiencing a failed relationship and reflecting on why you ever entered into the relationship in the first place.
“I would come out of these relationships, and so would my friends, and we would look back a while later and think why did I even date this guy in the first place? I think everyone has an ex or someone in their life that, in hindsight, seems like a huge mistake. There are so many sad songs about being single, when in reality, more and more people are choosing to stay single for longer and longer every year. So, I wrote X’s and Y’s, because we’ve all been through it, and now all there’s left to do is laugh about it!” says Jasmin.
Dubbed as “one to watch” by the Nashville Songwriters Association International for her debut single I’m Fine, Jasmin hit the ground running when she touched down in Nashville straight out of college. The Aussie native paired up with Spencer Jordan to pen the song, which covered the topic of mental health and was produced by Steven Martinez.
With vocals comparable to Miranda Lambert and Natalie Maines of The Chicks, Jasmin uses a combination of elements from the classic country she listened to growing up as well as the pop hits heard on today’s charts. As a songwriter, Jasmin is skilled at getting to the root of the story, which brings authenticity to her lyrics.
