Trans Pop Artist Jakk Fynn gets over a breakup while writing 'Don't Call'

“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players” William Shakespeare, is the saying that Jakk Fynn follows in life. The Transmale pop artist from Honolulu, Hawaii has a different outlook on life. Although he was born in Honolulu, he moved to Southern California to live with his grandparents at a young age.

This is where he found himself and learned a lot about gender and sexuality. Although he came from a conservative family he is now out as a proud trans man. Throughout his life, his identity made him face many problems, such as a lack of acceptance from his family and minimal representation growing up. which lead him to go through chronic depression with only music being his escape.

Jakk Fynn, now stays in LA and works on creating music that lifts people's spirits. His latest release is called 'Don't Call' and it was released on 4th March 2022. He wrote Don't Call shortly after a rough breakup that ended abruptly. Towards the start, Jakk had a lot of resentment towards the ex but writing the song helped him sort through his emotions and move on without needing closure.

The track was made rather quickly with the producer cooking up a beat in a few sessions. Jakk jumped in the booth another night to freestyle melodies and lyrics to have the track ready. When we asked Jakk why he creates music, he said " I just wanted to be able to give back to others the way music gave to me."

Having different influences from artists across genres like emo, punk, pop, metal, and many more, Jakk tries to make music that is true to him. If given the chance, Jakk would like to collaborate with Cartel Madras and Raveena.
