Planning your Big Beautiful Day?

Music is a gorgeous part of any celebration, and is especially beautifully sentimental and uplifting for your wedding day.

I’d be honoured to provide the live entertainment on your special day. From music for walking down the aisle, to signing the registry and/or playing for up to 4 hours at the reception.

I have around 8 hours of cover material to chose from (and as always I won’t deny the request to play one of my ditties).

Jenny has an individual and distinctive sound that we adore, and clearly all ages enjoy as our guests are still raving about her long after the event.

If you are planning a big day and striving to make it a success, our words of wisdom are… a successful event appears informal and spontaneous. In reality it takes meticulous planning and your selection of music is pivotal. Jenny will bring a casual and easygoing presence, in accord with her humble approach to provide a very special ambience.
We love Jenny and her music and cannot recommend her too strongly. Thank you again Jenny for being part of our very special day.”

Biographies:

25 Word Bio (Elevator Pitch):

Melbourne’s Best Busker 2012, Jenny Biddle, at first humble in her abilities, lets rip into a blistering guitar attack resembling Ian Moss in full flight.

100 Word Bio:

At one moment humble in her abilities, then suddenly letting rip into a blistering guitar attack that resembles Ian Moss in full flight, songsmith Jenny Biddle is captivating audiences throughout Australia.

Crowned Melbourne’s Best Busker 2012 and 2010, People’s Choice Award at the Tamworth Country Music Festival Busking Championship 2012, and with debut album Chest Of Drawers bursting into the Top 50 Triple J Unearthed charts… accolades for Jenny just keep on rolling in.

With a commanding musical dexterity from beautiful non-nonsense folk, to dirty blues grooves, rockin’ piano riffs, or an intimate moment of reflection, catch Jenny now… before the moment passes by.

 

FULL BIO:

She wraps herself around a self-made acoustic guitar*, like a marriage between body and instrument, her most honest core is released as she commands the guitar to sing with such rare musical intuition. Her audience is compelled to join her on a previously unexplored voyage of passion and song.

 

With a commanding three-piece band, Jenny bewitches you with brilliant original folk/blues tunes that rely on her powerfully emotive voice, an instinctual mastery of the piano and her jaw dropping skills on the guitar.  Removed from the confines of structure, a solo performance is something more altogether; as she finds the freedom to truly express herself, her songs are given the space to travel in previously unexplored directions.

 

Whether listening to her albums or witnessing this diminutive songstress live on stage, you are humbled by a raw honesty. The intense and somewhat complex style of Jenny’s music touches upon many issues that affect us all… love, loss, fears, hopes – all the challenges life throws at us. And she’s willing to share and let us in. In fact, she’s so damn honest she even talks about her lies! She describes herself as “Missy Higgins meets The Waifs, with some mesmerising guitar voyages and facial expressions thrown in.” In truth, her songs are just so deeply personal, inspiring an incredibly moving listening experience.

 

Live on stage, Jenny has the ability to resonate with her audience, enticing interaction, moving them to laughter and tears. A Jenny Biddle performance is full of energy and humour. Her guitar intertwines bass notes, percussion and melody so seamlessly that it seems there has to be more than one person on stage, despite conflicting evidence to the contrary. It’s an engaging experience and one that draws in fans who bear witness to Jenny’s musical dexterity, soaking up a musician who is at one moment humble in her abilities, before suddenly letting rip with a blistering guitar attack that’s akin to the power of Ian Moss in full flight.

 

Quite simply, Jenny Biddle bewitches, as you watch an artist who’s developed the confidence and ability to deliver a show full of musical passion and subtle flair. She’s played over 200 gigs every year since 2006 and has supported music legends like Jeff Lang, Jen Cloher, and the sadly missed Daryl Cotton and his esteemed colleagues, Keays and Morris.

Destined to walk a musical path from a young age, a brief encounter with the ukulele at just 4 years old lit the fire for Jenny’s obsession. Moving on quickly to a lifelong love of the piano at age 5, followed by a passionate and ongoing affair with the guitar from the age of 9, original compositions soon followed… accompanied by a steady stream of awards.

 

Most recently Jenny won the prestigious title of Melbourne’s Best Busker 2012, a title which she’s held since 2010, along with the People’s Choice Award at the Tamworth Country Music Festival Busking Championship 2012. In 2011, Jen won both the Judges’ Vote and the People’s Choice Awards at the Ballina Country Music Festival. This acknowledgement added to her earlier win of the Just Guitars ‘Best Artist’ award at the 2009 Port Fairy Folk Festival. Suffice to say, recognition of Jenny’s talents by both public and industry alike is quickly growing.

 

Her first two albums – ‘Chest of Drawers’ and ‘Little Treasures’ – have been met with universal high praise. Reviews described them as “… quite simply remarkable” (Trad & Now magazine) and Beautiful, no-nonsense folk music, with one of those great emotive voices that echoes just a touch of world-worn huskiness. (Dom Alessio – Triple J).

 

Her brand new album ‘Hero in Me’, funded by excited fans, was produced by Thirsty Merc’s former guitarist, and legendary producer, Sean Carey. “From the growls of her more ‘country’ tracks to the way she lulls you in to her ballads….. It has sunshine, clouds and places in the sky to get to” (Mariella Mejia – Gaydar Girls), this album is her most vibrant work to date . Jenny’s first video clip for the title track, Hero in Me, is on the way. Written and directed by Rebecca Greensill with crew support from Home & Away, you’re soon to witness more of Jenny’s animated personality for her most popular iTunes single.    

 

Like her songs and performances, Jenny Biddle is a striking, charming, refreshing, intense yet sweet person. She’s a master of her craft – one whose talents and tenacity will surely elevate her to the next level in a hurry. Catch her now… before another moment passes by.
