Jenny Berkel tourdates in September, European release October06-07-2016
Since releasing her debut album, "Here on a Wire", Canadian singer-songwriter Jenny Berkel has been intoxicating listeners with her evocative songs and voice. Both on her own and as part of Daniel Romano's Trilliums band, her consistent touring has garnered fans across the country and ocean.
Born in the heart of Ontario's lush forests and fields, Berkel's music has drawn her from rural Ontario to Winnipeg to Toronto and now, finally, to Montreal. This constant shifting finds its rest in her songs: her lyrics are dreamy and piercing, shimmering with memories and glittering with the quiet solitude of a night sky.
Your voice is a home I move into / Like a half dream, I hold onto / the words you say Berkel's writing is at once gentle and hard-hitting. Her lush and low voice ornaments her poetry with melodies that soar high and clear before spilling back down again. Berkel's forthcoming sophomore album, "Pale Moon Kid", was recorded with gifted producer Daniel Romano and will be released in October with Pop Up Records. Steeped in sparkling guitars, sparse piano, pulsing bass and percussion, this glowing new collection reveals writing that has grown even sharper and more lyrical.
