"Lindfors's talent goes way beyond second fiddle...her superb voice is well able to emulate her folk heroines."- IRISH TIMES- 4 stars "Why a record company would pass up on tracks such as 'Voodoo', 'I don't really want you here' and the quite stunning 'Lovestage' defies logic." MAIL ON SUNDAY

Biography

"Lindfors's talent goes way beyond second fiddle...her superb voice is well able to emulate her folk heroines."-
IRISH TIMES ALBUM OF THE WEEK- 4 stars

"...steeped in an early 1970's Californian sound, it's palette of mellow harmonies and acoustic guitars as chilled out as a gentle summer breeze from the Pacific...quietly enchanting"- THE SUNDAY TIMES

" A fine example of lovingly crafted and gorgeously delivered folk-pop songs...the most outstanding thing about the album however, is Lindfors's pure and powerful voice, that's full of depth and richness and belies her 25 years."

MAIL ON SUNDAY

"Jenny Lindfors's debut album is an unexpected delight"
METRO- 4 stars

"A dark and dreamy debut, it meanders wonderfully through a sea of mellow folk and gently acoustic pop."
IN DUBLIN

"Twelve excellent songs, beautifully modulated"
HOT PRESS

"A well kept secret...fully formed...mature...terrific...with a touch of Mama Cass in her voice"
PAT KENNY, RTÉ

"Blissed-out melodic folk-pop that will sound fantastic on a warm summer evening. And even if it rains it'll still sound deadly."

The first songs were scribbled at the age of six, the first guitar strings strummed at 12 and the first stage dive in the Rock Garden at 14, Jenny Lindfors has always had the musical bug. Now with her debut offering 'When The Night Time Comes', featuring the seductive single '2 x 1', it is time for it to become infectious.

'When The Night Time Comes' is a collection of tracks tenderly capturing the rollercoaster weekend experience and the romantics tumbles that often ensue. With its warm and earthy tones, it has an organic, effortless charm. The sensuality (Voodoo) and hedonism (Night Time) of a young party-goer is beautifully balanced with a flip-side of vulnerability (Fearful Things) and darkness (Let The Seas Calm).

"I've always been aware of the difference between whiny self-indulgence and touching melancholic music," explains Jenny. "I've never very good at being contrived. People know when something is a genuine expression from the heart or a crock of shit."

Incorporating multi-instrumentation with a lot of African percussion such as the djembe (drum), congas, ukulele and old organs, When the Night Time Comes' was recorded with her mate Ben Delaney over the last two years with the acclaimed 'Carry Us Away' ep as a pitstop.

'When the night time comes' was released March 2007 to nationwide critical acclaim. The first single '2x1' received heavy airplay on RTÉ Radio 1, Phantom FM and Dan Hegartys 'Alternative to sleep' programme on 2FM. The second single is scheduled for release in September 2007.

With supports to Ben Taylor, My Brightest Diamond and Rodrigo y Gabriela prior to her album release, one senses that Jenny Lindfors is assuredly on her way. She is currently gigging extensively and working on the second album.
