Alumni News – Merryn Jeann

Merry Jeann graduated from CBRSS in 2014. In 2016 Merryn established herself as a feature vocalist and songwriter to take serious note of. Merryn has been compared to artists Amy Winehouse, Feist and Yukimi Nagano (Little Dragon), herself drawing vocal inspiration from diverse acts like Nai Palm (Hiatus Kaiyote), Laura Marling and Moses Sumney.

Students from the high school were invited to work with Merryn this week, rehearsing and performing an acoustic version of her new single “Wantigga- Slowly”

The single was released on Good Friday and has already had 54000 views on Youtube.

The intention of the project with the students was to create a live acoustic version, featuring a choir of CBRSS students performing it with Merryn in the Movement room.

The Audio and Visual recording will be used as promotion of the song and the artist “Merryn Jeann”.

There will be a professional crew making the clip which will be launched sometime next week on Youtube and other social media platforms.
