Jenni Spiro’s empowering rock song ‘Hey You’ to close 'Over the Line'
Jersey singer’s ‘riveting message and driven performance’ combine for the movie’s perfect ending
(Parsippany, NJ, March 15, 2018)
“The moment I heard ‘Hey You,’ I knew this was the song we wanted to accompany the dramatic closing scene of our film,” says “Over the Line” writer-producer Bob Messinger.
A co-production of NJ-based Where’s the Lake Productions and Cloudy Sky Films, “Over the Line” is a dark comedy about a woman facing a self-imposed judgment day with wit and irreverence.
“Jenni has made quite the reputation for herself as a performer here in New Jersey as well as up and down the east coast,” says Messinger. “Her writing is powerful, and her guttural delivery is reminiscent of artists like Pat Benatar and Melissa Etheridge.“
Regionally, Spiro has rocked out regularly with popular Jersey band The Benjamins. She also performs solo and duo acoustic gigs along the east coast.
Spiro, born and raised in Lake Hopatcong, was born into a musical family. Her father is the keyboard player/vocalist for The Nerds, and her mother is bassist and lead vocalist for several Jersey-based bands. Jenni’s talent was first chronicled at the age of three by a reporter who saw her singing pitch-perfect covers atop a milk crate. By the age of seven, she was writing songs. And by 15, she had already mastered the bass and acoustic guitar.
Jenni Spiro joins a talented New Jersey/New York cast and crew that includes director/producer Mathieu Abric, score composer Landon Knoblock, and actors Stacey Van Gorder, Cronin Cullen and Saba.
The script for “Over the Line” has won numerous screenplay competitions. Currently in the final stages of post-production, the film will be seen at film festivals during the second half of 2018 and throughout 2019 as a prelude to distribution.
