Confidently laying claim to the genre "indie-folk" Jenny writes complicated and unique pop-tinged landscapes. Originally from Vancouver Island, She is a seriously accomplished instrumentalist and supports her clear, sweet vocals with complex banjo and guitar parts. A rotating cast of band members includes musicians from Fish & Bird, The Deep Dark Woods, and The Bills. Her lyrics reflect a lonely upbringing deep in the woods, rife with pastoral imagery and wild animals scratching at the doors.

In 2012, after a decade of playing with roots outfit, The Gruff, Jenny wrote her critically acclaimed album Bright Mainland. In September 2015 she released her newest artistic accomplishment, Raised By Wolves, a dreamy tribute to an unconventional upbringing, and unusual people.

Jenny loves to travel to old, cold places. She's been to most every nook and cranny of Canada, and frequently tours the roads of the UK and Scandinavia. When not touring, she singlehandedly runs two rock choirs in East Vancouver, The Kingsgate Chorus, and the Mount Pleasant Regional Institute of Sound.
