Jasmin Kaset was raised in Cottontown, Tennessee–a small, unincorporated township near the Kentucky border. The daughter of acclaimed songwriter Angela Kaset (“Something in Red”), she first learned to play guitar as a child. But during her teens, Jasmin’s interest in music took a backseat to her interest in poetry writing, literature, and traveling. As a college student in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, Jasmin continued to hone her singular writing voice in prose and verse by day, reveling in the small college town’s grimy but vibrant indie rock scene by night.

Before she established herself as a singer in her own right, Jasmin took up the drums to play in the raucous and locally notorious all-girl punk band, The Fork Hunts (which she still does during the band’s intermittent reunion shows).

When the time came to leave Murfreesboro and explore the world, she brought her songs with her–playing in Australian bars and on the streets of Prague and Krakow. But she always returned home to Tennessee. True to her roots in the fiercely independent Murfreesboro/Nashville rock scene, her first recording was a cassette tape-only release on the local rock and noise microlabel Nailbat Tapes. The Nashville Scene noticed her release, hailing her folksy but idiosyncratic style as “a bare-bones collection of wispy, acoustic folk-pop…equal parts cuteness, quirk and profundity, delivered with a feline croon.”

In the years since, Jasmin has fleshed out her sound with her band, the Grown Ass Men, and her first full-length debut pairs her airy, soulful voice with the lush soundscapes of celebrated local producer (and teenage ex-boyfriend) Jordan Lehning.
