The best kept secret in music


"Environment inspires local folk musician"

This is an excerpt from a "Feature this" article published in The Daily Eastern News on March 9th 2007.

Since her first performance, Keefe has been writing all of her own songs, taking inspiration from literally everything around her.
"I am influenced and inspired by every person, place, thing, thought, dream and experience that I come accross", she said. "The patterns of birds, the shifting of the cosmos, the scent of the seasons changing".
In the songs themselves, Keefe's lyrics scream as much color and diversity as there are factors that influence her.
"My songs deal with everything from matters of the heart to the conscious state of society to characters and stories about characters," Keefe said.
She performs at coffeehouses, bars, colleges and festivals.
"I'm very excited about playing new places. No matter how many times people come out and see you and support you, it's really exciting to be able to play to someone who's never heard your songs before because it makes the music new to you as well," Keefe said.
"When you feel like someone else is hearing it for the first time, it kind if re-inspires you." - On the Verge-EIU campus newspaper

Feeling a bit camera shy


Singer/Songwriter Jenny Keefe brings ambience and introspect to her acoustic performances endearing audiences of all ages at coffee houses, colleges, and bars throughout the midwest.
Described by some as a folk balladeer and others as soulful and urban, emotionally moving is always a common thread.
Her passionate vocal delivery proves to be as captivating as the songs themselves. The stories they present range anywhere from comparing shameless flirtations with applying for a job or the changing of the weather to life's trials and tribulations. She evokes memories of childhood along with experiences of growing and changing from year to year. She introduces you to characters who "wear their will down to the bone" and yet "never lose their strength", some songs visit those who are intuitive or are perhaps just crossing over the oine of mental and emotional boundaries.
Whether she is singing about painting landscapes, traveling the country, dancing ancient dances or the conscious state of society; Jackson Avenue Coffee Shop writes, "Jenny Keefe will woo you into a beautiful place with her enchanting vocals."
Look for her seventeen track debut "Pot Belly Prizm" as well as "Wellspring" her second offering; a new album is presently in the works.
