Fine Welsh psychedelic rock-folk from the hills of Snowdonia. Ffarout!

Biography

Jen Jeniro formed in the hills of Snowdonia in 2005 when soon-be-guitarist Gwion and soon-to-be frontman Eryl were forced into conversation during a tedious after-school job. Llyr Pari was added to the mix, plus some other delinquents who have long since left the band, and Jen Jeniro was born.

The following summer (2006), JJ released an E.P. called 'Tallahassee' independently, followed by the much improved 'Geleniaeth' L.P in mid 2008;

"A beautiful, beautiful record"- Adam Walton;
"A marvelous album that creeps under your skin..."- Huw Stevens.

Following an university-induced lazy and unproductive period, the 'Selar' magazine award-winning, and Radio Cymru Rock & Pop award-winning single 'Dolphin Pinc a Melyn' was released as a limited edition cassette.

"Absolutely brilliant. That end-of-summer sound of the place where Gorky's meets Giant Steps era Boo Radleys.5/5." Buzz Magazine.

Following sessions for Radio Wales, Radio Cymru and BBC 6 Music, a bi-lingual E.P named 'Swimming Limbs' has been recorded and is awaiting release...

"Jen Jeniro’s psychedelic approach to pop-rock is the unrefined gem in the Welsh music scene’s tiara." - Miniature Music Press
