Clarissa writes songs from her life experiences. This comes naturally and performing her songs is her most fulfilling self expression. Writing simple songs about complex things such as love, family, and life in general– issues that most people relate to in a form of a pop/dance/rock tune or a ballad is her own way of channeling her dynamic energy constructively. Though she exclusively performs dance pop numbers, she is also currently writing a few R&B, hiphop, and country genres. Take a listen to her songs–you can’t help singing along or just rock with it.
Clarissa has been singing since the tender age of 2. Her mother shares the story of when a next door neighbor overheard Clarissa the toddler singing the national anthem from start to finish!
Clarissa has electrifying energy that could propel a jet plane. It’s a fire that ignites and sparks her creative energy fueling her musical and dance repertoire. “Feel the passion” is her mantra. On stage is where she is most at home. The name Clarissa denotes a limitless, boundless, and fearless persona, resounding continued spiritual ‘renewal’ and of coming to terms. At any moment, Clarissa can become somewhat of a chameleon and dynamically re-invents herself.

Soulful…Heartfelt… Sultry… Thought provoking… Meaningful The Musical Heart of Jennifer Lang
— Ozzmak (@Ozzmak) January 18, 2013
“What excites me most about music,” New York-based singer/songwriter Jennifer Lang says, is simple: “The sound… music is in the ocean. It’s in your heart beat. It’s in your spirit.” Raised in church singing with an appropriately titled family act “The Lang Family,” Jennifer’s introduction to music and public performing started at eight years old. She was also a member of her church choir and sang in the school choir through high school. Jennifer’s secular music education blossomed when Jennifer and her brother pulled out their mother’s records and listened to the greats of the day including Aretha Franklin and Al Green along with hundreds of others.
For someone so steeped in music that it touches her very soul, you would think music is the reason Jennifer moved all the way from Pine Bluff, Arkansas to The Big Apple in an effort to pursue her musical dreams. She was actually already living there, having been hired by a political action group to organize lower income neighborhoods to help them get better city services. While in training, Jennifer was hired by the telephone company. And like the old phone company slogan goes, Jennifer “reached out and touched someone” with her singing voice at work.
Jennifer knew that if there was ever a time and a place for her to “go for it,” it was in New York City. She prayed about it “and asked God to lead me and protect me and keep me in good company, because although I didn’t know everything about the music business, I did realize that there were stories of bad things happening to sweet little girls like me. I educated myself, I read books, talked to attorneys, attended seminars and then started recording.”
With the completion on her follow-up album, “3′O Clock Saturday”, Jennifer continues the love theme with soulful tales of failing, forgiveness and being happy at the end of it all.
