Goldmyth Hits HBO Max

Provo Pop makes a prominent appearance on one of the most talked about series on the service.

Since her time as Kelly Kapoor in the NBC sitcom The Office, Mindy Kaling has been crushing it as a writer, executive producer, and director. The Emmy-nominee created the Fox comedy series The Mindy Project, the Hulu miniseries Four Weddings and a Funeral, and the Netflix series Never Have I Ever. Her latest contribution hit another streaming giant on November 18, 2021. Entitled The Sex Lives of College Girls, the teen dramedy from HBO Max has a 95% on Rotten Tomatoes and has drawn favorable comparisons to Sex and the City.

Needless to say, landing a song placement on a show like this is a huge deal. Especially when your song appears prominently in the first five minutes of the series premiere.

That’s exactly what happened to Provo’s own Jenessa Smith. Smith is a harpist, singer, and producer who makes dreamy indie pop under the pseudonym Goldmyth. Her song “Lover’s Letdown” kicks off the series with a bang, underscoring the arrival of four wide-eyed freshmen as they arrive at Essex College in Vermont.

“Lover’s Letdown” is from Goldmyth’s EP Faded Dream, a stellar record that has accumulated well over half a million streams since its release in 2017. Goldmyth’s strong vocal delivery and catchy hooks are enhanced by her signature harp textures – a unique touch that elevates her above her peers. This is an exciting and well-deserved development for a talented Provo artist. Here’s to hoping more placements like this are in store for other Goldmyth gems like “Faded Dream,” “Has to Be Better,” and “Isn’t It Easy.”
