Name: OSCATrack name: Trumpet
Who? Singer Jack Kenworthy and the band.
Why now? This is the exclusive stream of the track which features on the the Blood EP. According to Kenworthy: “Trumpet was inspired by a novel I was given of the same title. The book is about the life of Joss Moody, a jazz trumpeter in the 50s, who was born a female but chose to live his life as a man in order to pursue a career as a musician. It discusses the question of true identity in relation to our own actions – when Joss was playing the trumpet his gender and sexual identity became irrelevant. I really liked this idea of individuality and it became the basis for the lyrics of the song. The idea of telling someone to be who you are and not to be afraid of that. The line ‘It all doesn’t matter, let the trumpet sound’ is a direct reference to the book.”
