    Award-Winning Writer and Author, Survivor and Advocate - Jenna Ashlyn

    Award-Winning Writer and Author, Survivor and Advocate Jenna Ashlyn drops in to the The Junk and Jam Hour via Zoom, to talk all bout her life's work as a writer, which started at the age of 8, and how that skill has helped her cope and find joy after becoming a young widow, and surviving sexual violence and domestic abuse. She also shares how she uses her platform to encourage other survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and those battling mental health issues, to continue striving for a greater life after trauma.
    Jenna also recounts some of the autobiographical detail from her debut novel, Within the Gray, which follows a young widowed mother named Terra as she navigates the world after her husband’s death, and her 2022 follow-up, Sheila's Men, about a naïve romantic living in poverty -- who blindly marries a man in the hopes of providing a better life for herself and her daughter -- and finds herself subjected to emotional, physical, and sexual abuse.
    She not only talks in depth about her survival story, but about her life’s mission, dedicating her time and talents as voice for others, and as a volunteer for Southern Ohio’s Survivor Advocacy Outreach Program, providing support and services to victims of abuse. Most importantly, Jenna has found sincere joy since - and is not only happily engaged, but has a brand new, swag ride!

    Nashville-based Songwriter, Producer, Entrepreneur and Spiritual Influencer - Mallory Pacific

    Nashville-based LGTBQIA+ Artist, Singer, Songwriter, Producer, Creative Director, Entrepreneur, Spiritual Influencer and Emotion Coach, Mallory Pacific calls in to the Junk and Jam Hour to talk all about her expansive music career, which spans over 20 years - from discovering her musicianship at aged 12 to becoming a country songwriter in Nashville, TN - as well as having a successful 15 year venture in the beauty industry.
    We discuss her journey to crafting her own unique sound, look and brand, and her commitment to producing inspirational, honest, and vulnerable pop music – including Emotional – a song in which she reveals how she overcame self-loathing, to embracing her authentic self, however 'emotional' that was for her. We also listen to the electrifying track, inspired by her plights with being bullied for being emotional, and told she was too much, too sensitive, and too dramatic, as well as the positive response she's received for the hit, including from Queer Queue Magazine, which praised, "...her ability to turn a song about accepting oneself from such a deep place - into a total bop.”
    Other than her own emotional glow up, we also talk about her Personal Development and Spirituality Platform - The Emotional Glow Up - a program she's specifically curated for healing the hearts and minds of girls, guys, gays, they's and others from marginalized communities, using various modalities such as tarot, astrology, mindset work & EFT tapping, to help others clear their blocks, traumas, fears, and false narratives - both current and generational. She also talks about why it was so important for her to build a brand around emotional wellness and connection, both in and outside of music.
    We celebrate Mallory for paving the way for other Queer artists, by simply being unapologetically herself, and jam out to another hit, Never Not Miss You, from her Never Not Miss You Remix EP.
