Bio

Jenny Gillespie’s new genre-bending album is Kindred, recorded in Chicago and Austin and produced by producer/multi-instrumentalist Darwin Smith. If Bjork were sitting on Joni Mitchell’s front porch under a meteor shower, perhaps this electro-folk-pop record would be the result of their musical conversation. Like a stuttering film revealing images of lovelorn animals, churning oceans and unfurling forest plants, Kindred is soothing, wild music for modern ears. Spiritual, sensual, and cinematic, Kindred marks a departure for Jenny’s sound.

Jenny previously released the folk-rock EP Light Year. Driven by delicate piano and off-kilter guitar tunings, Light Year garnered comparisons to Bon Iver and Mark Kozelek; her song "Hummingbirds" won Jenny a spot as a 2009 Williamsburg Songwriting Competition finalist.

Jenny is currently playing shows in Chicago and around the U.S. in support of Kindred. Kindred is now available on Itunes, Amazon + Cdbaby and for full streaming at Bandcamp.com as is Light Year
