Jay Som is a DIY musical bedroom-pop project by Melina Duterte. This 22-year old songwriter is based in Oakland, California. She studied music production and recording at a community college, then began doing it all on her own. Duterte’s music is the definition of bedroom-pop, being that she records everything she makes in her studio which is literally in her bedroom.
Duterte has released two albums since the start of her music career in 2012. Her first record, Turn Into, was released in 2016 via Top Shelf and Polyvinyl. More recently, Duterte released Everybody Works this past March via Polyvinyl and Double Denim. Pitchfork describes her new album being, “It’s not a bedroom-pop album because it sounds a certain way, but because it feels so intimate.”
