Jessica Carter Altman is ready to go up in “Smoke” in new single

Maryland born and bred singer-songwriter and multi faceted creator Jessica Carter Altman has just unleashed her latest EP Aftermath II. The highlight of the four song collection and the EP’s centerpiece is the single “Smoke”.

With “Smoke”, the poetic songwriter crafts a track inspired by the tales of Bonnie and Clyde. Life is worth living and the song “Smoke” reminds listeners to take risks, be unapologetically radical and just enjoy the thrilling twists and turns. The song also touches upon new beginnings and how transformative they can be, with lyrics including, “A new start / Leave it all behind / We’re going up in smoke / Let this big bang lift us off the ground.” Musically, “Smoke” features a layered pop-laden chorus over saccharine synths and dream-inducing guitars. Jessica Carter Altman’s soft vocal hue is alluring and the song’s engaging lyrics tell a timeless and important story.

Jessica Carter Altman is known for her authentic songwriting and dynamic musical fusion. The artist takes influences from the likes of Nina Simone and Boygenius. Her live performances are riveting and the artist is set to tour with popular songwriter Tyler Hilton this spring.
