Hailing from London, England, Jennie Mahood never considered a career in music, playing in the school orchesta was the height of her musicial ambitions. It was only after 'surviving' a degree in psychology did she decide to take a year to do something she loved, and therefore took a flight to florida to study music for a year.
It was in this year that Jennie was first introduced to the technological capabilities of her laptop winston, and the ability to write and produce her own music. Having been a huge fan of electronic music such as imogen heap and more mellow acoustic music such as emiliana torrini, she was delighted to find that she could marry the two together creating her own 'laptop-folk'.
Her first song was written a week before her first gig in Feb 2010, she carried on writing songs throughout her year in america and then recorded all the songs she had, in a makeshift studio in her wardrobe. The result was that in 2010 she released her debut album 'Even Hills Have White Coats'.

This track is part of a series where she is releasing a track a week with an accompanying video. The tracks and videos are pure creative beautiful simplicity and show that you don’t need big budgets and months of production time to creative interesting work. The video for Some Place I’ll Call Home is a perfect accompaniment to the vibe of the song and was simply made by poking a digital camera with a video function into the viewfinder of an old Twin Reflex camera with a black tube in-front of it. The video for Empty Seats and Crumpled Sheets is similarly simple but effective.
I think the weekly release and videos are a great way to keep fans interested and get people excited about future tracks and the evolution of your work. I’m really hoping that these tracks and video maintain the high standard and vibe of the ones we’ve seen so far and start creating some serious internet buzz about this amazing songwriter.
