Jensen McRae discusses inspiration and collaboration

Oct. 19, MTV published a profile of USC Thornton popular music program alumna Jensen McRae. The site mentioned Jensen’s recent sold-out opening performances in New York’s Rockwood Music Hall for singer Amos Lee, as well as the literary roots and collaborative perspective of Jensen’s music.

“If I’m having writer’s block in one area, focusing on a different type of creative project is really helpful,” Jensen said about songwriting methods. “I also think it makes music a lot more interesting when your influences are things other than music.”
