Rising singer-songwriter Jax is embracing her inner child with her nostalgic new holiday anthem, “I Feel Like A Kid Again.” Written by Jax, Jordan Witzigreuter (Onlychild fka The Ready Set) and Cameron Walker-Wright (All Time Low, Sabrina Carpenter, We The Kings), the festive new song is driven by drumline snares and chiming bells that compliment Jax’s saccharine vocals.
“I wanted to write a song about the nostalgia of the holidays. No matter how old you get, when you go home for the holidays, you get to feel like a kid again!” – JAX
“I Feel Like A Kid Again,” rounds out an outstanding year for the emerging artist, who has released three new singles since announcing her signing with Atlantic Records earlier this year. Her most recent release, a sentimental ballad written about her parents titled “Like My Father,” has accrued over 55 million streams since its release and was crowned by The Knot as one of, “the best father-daughter dance songs of all time.”
“Like My Father” followed the release of “90s Kids,” Jax’s addictive throwback single that proved a fast fan favorite. The track received over 1 million weekly streams for 21 consecutive weeks and was complimented by a music video starring The Sandlot’s Patrick Renna. Meanwhile, her label-debut single “Ring Pop” arrived earlier this year to a massive viral response and high-profile appearances on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Access Hollywood & more.
Raised in New Jersey by way of New York, Jax got her start by performing a wide variety of genres and in bands growing up. At the age of 18, she developed cancer above her vocal cords, which returned following a couple months of remission right as she relocated to Los Angeles in pursuit of her music. Left unable to sing herself, Jax turned to songwriting for others and found industry success behind-the-scenes.
As her ability to perform returned, Jax needed to pivot yet again when the COVID-19 pandemic struck. This time she turned to TikTok, posting a hilarious response to the pop gem “Stacy’s Mom” from “Stacy’s Mom’s Perspective” which exploded with nearly 9 million views in just a few months and “Update from Avril Lavigne & Sk8er Boi 18 years later” which became her most successful parody to date with over 14.8 million views. She continued to go viral a dozen or more times over, now having amassed over 1 billion total views on the platform, 7 million followers and 113 million “likes.” Her top performing video, “From The Kid I Babysit’s Perspective” has garnered a tremendous 112 million views. With a massive online audience under her belt, Jax began sharing her own original music in late 2020 to an overwhelmingly positive response – ultimately leading to her signing with Atlantic Records for her forthcoming debut full-length.
