No acting, only authentic life moments: “The Perfect Time” by E. Jennings


On this crisp, golden autumn day singer and songwriter Erica Jennings releases a nostalgic song “The Perfect Time”. It is, without a doubt, one of the strongest pieces she has ever written.

“Authentic, real moments that people experience in their lives is the essence of this song. That is why I was open to all age groups, genders, locations and emotions when making this video”, – the Irish-born artist narrates the idea.

The song about a special connection that is not meant to be 

This song, as well as most of the others from Erica’s first solo album “Leading Me Home”, tells the story of human relationships through the prism of personal experiences of the artist:

“The Perfect Time” is about this special bond between two people. A bond which is not meant to be – at least not in this lifetime”, hints E. Jennings.

The artist notes that it is not uncommon for couples in a committed relationship to experience a special connection with another person. Yet it is not worth to compromise all you have to pursue that lust. These are mere moments that test you and then let you go – what truly matters, is how you deal with them. That is exactly why, even if the song talks about uncertainty, the video shows the kind of love that is thriving.

From the beginning of her solo career, E. Jennings has spoken about the realness, true emotions, openness and honesty. The ideas behind the song and video of “The Perfect Time” only further give meaning to the creative direction of the artist.

160 people from 15 countries contributed to the video

Since Erica’s latest single is full of feelings, the singer decided to illustrate it with real emotions and no acting. Right in the midst of summer she asked her friends and fans to send short videos capturing the most beautiful moments of their lives.

When I saw the videos sent by so many people, I realized that no actors could ever communicate these subtle feelings better”, smiles E. Jennings.

The singer received more than 100 intimate videos from 15 countries. The best moments made their way into “The Perfect Time” video. Well-known musicians and artists, such as Monika Linkytė, Beata Tiškevič, Vidas Bareikis, Jurga Šeduikytė an Vytautas Bikus generously shared their own moments as well.

Jennings promises a very special season

This autumn Erica is promising even more surprises and opportunities to meet her fans and will share more information very soon. In the meantime, the single “The Perfect Time”, as a part of the debut album “Leading Me Home”, is available to listen to on Spotify, download on iTunes and purchase at the Coffee Inn cafes all around Lithuania.
