Award-winning musician Jenn Grinels is a dynamic songwriter, powerhouse vocalist and all-round entertainer who will absolutely dazzle you.
Last year the rising star spent time on the road opening for famed band the 10,000 Maniacs, at one point prompting San Francisco Examiner reviewer Kenneth Fish to write, “Grinels steals the show. She is a rock and roll temptress conjuring musical spells that no one could resist. Whether quietly purring into the microphone or seriously belting out a tune, the audience was hanging on every note and lapping up every well crafted phrase. (She) has the rare gift of being a well-rounded performer who engages the audience fully and openly, sharing the performer as much as the performance. And her performance was nothing short of amazing.”
The self-described “soulful, bluesy, jazzy, folk rock artist” has released three critically acclaimed full-length albums, built a loyal fan base all over the world and won numerous awards for her electrifying live performances. Her single “Right From The Start”(brokenHEARTbreaker) can be heard on radio stations nationwide and music from her full length albums has been featured on several major television networks and in films all over the world.
“When you end the night standing and cheering with all of your friends and 200 strangers, you know something wonderful just happened. If the stars made music they would be jealous of Jenn Grinels. …an unbeatable live experience. Goosebumps all around.” – GuerillaCandy.com (Seattle, WA)
“Her voice is just absurd. Two artists kept coming to mind – Martin Sexton and Fiona Apple. Sexton because of her vocal focus & control; Fiona Apple because of her tell-off confessional and conversational lyrics, her penchant for complex rhyme schemes, and her powerful, listen-up-buster delivery.”
– Crazytalk.com (San Francisco, CA)
“A folksinger of uncommon strength and vitality, who puts the lie to most popular notions about women with guitars who sing of life and love’s injustices. She achieves the energy of rock without subverting the melody and lyrics, and the effect is electrifying.” – Wenzel Jones, Back Stage West
