About this Event

A tremendous vocalist, compelling songwriter and dynamic performer, Jenn Grinels is shockingly talented and unexpectedly sincere.

The singer/songwriter recently relocated from Nashville to Portland after years spent on “perma-tour”, headlining hundreds of concerts across the country and abroad, as well as supporting artists like 10,000 Maniacs, Marc Broussard, Edwin McCain, Christopher Cross, Marc Cohn and many more.

Her concerts are explosive, intimate and unapologetically human, she’s an artist who deeply values and excels in connecting with her audience. San Francisco Examiner writer Kenneth Fish described this quality in his review of her performance: “I found myself utterly captivated. Whether Grinels was quietly purring into the microphone or seriously belting out a tune, the audience was hanging on her every note and every well crafted phrase… Grinels’ performance was nothing short of amazing.”

Her new album, Go Mine, set to be released in August 2020, features elements of soul, jazz, folk, blues, pop, Americana, and rock. Grinels’ music has a poised delivery and balanced power reminiscent of long-established rock icons like Bonnie Raitt, and the loose, expectation-defying variety of artists like Martin Sexton. From the straightforward beauty and sweet

vocal harmonies of love song “Hands Down” to the 5-part, live jam session energy of the title track “Go Mine,” the songs on the album showcase Grinels’ varied influences, remarkable songwriting abilities and vast vocal range. Her voice can go from Fiona Apple’s intricate, visceral vulnerability to Eva Cassidy’s haunting clarity, hitting every timbre in between. She can belt like a powerhouse, coo like a baby bird, punch like a raw rocker, or deliver a pure, innocuous soprano warble, all with “an unfailing sense of the dynamics called for in each moment,” as Southeast Missourian writer Sam Blackwell reported after seeing Grinels’ performance at Nashville’s famed Bluebird Café. “Grinels’ began to sing and the room stopped breathing, words fell from her mouth like gems.”

This week marks the release of the first single from Go Mine, “Evidence” is a blissful, soulful, throwback of a duet with one of Jenn’s musical heroes, Marc Broussard. The song celebrates that theory called loves, distills it, bottles it and serves it up with powerful vocals, soaring horns and a swinging rhythm section.

For fans of: Eva Cassidy, Martin Sexton, Van Morrison, Fiona Apple, Marc Broussard, Bonnie Raitt & Norah Jones
