Celebrating 10 Years of “Hero in Me”

This year marks 10 YEARS since the release of Jenny’s third, and perhaps most pivotal album “Hero in Me”. Do you have a favourite song on the album? Do you own a signed CD?

Most known for the popular “coming out” song, Hero in Me, this album highlights candid developments in Jenny’s songwriting style. Crowdfunded by fans, recorded in Sydney, and tastefully produced by Sean Carey, Jenny played a handful of instruments on on the album and session musicians added rich layers to her compositions, creating a vivid mix of blues, roots, folk and a hint of country.
To celebrate this big anniversary for the album, each month Jenny will select a track from the album to talk about on her Patreon page. You can read in-depth about the title track, her obstacles to performing her “coming out” song, awkward moments filming the video clip, see rare images, video clips and more by becoming a “songwriter tipper” on Patreon.

Jenny’s 8th Album “Hoping for a Hero” AVAILABLE NOW!

It’s here! Ready for your ears! Introducing Jenny Biddle’s 8th independent album “Hoping for a Hero”! Explore thirteen exquisitely crafted compositions, as Jenny candidly surveys the ups and downs of life using her diverse palette of blues, folk, alt-country, rock and roots flavours.

Several years in the making, and playing a dozen instruments on this album herself, you’ll hear her memorable acoustic guitar style that marries melody, bass and percussion amidst her dependable guitar hooks. Joined by talented session musicians for a lush, full band vibe, enjoy raunchier roots, gentle folk tunes, poignant piano ballads, blues grooves, sweet country flavours, and in “Mountains & Molehills” she immerses us for the first time with the meandering sounds of a Weissenborn slide guitar, hand made by her father. With a lush sonic experience, producer Sean Carey adds the icing to the cake with his atmospheric, electric guitar melodies that tie in beautifully with Jenny’s reflective lyrical sentiment.

From the depths of lockdown, Jenny describes the album concept: “I was struck by the undertone of a longing for some kind of hero throughout these songs. In the past I’ve channelled my quest for happiness in futile directions, whether it be dreams, fame and fortune, romance, approval, or a binge-eating sesh at midnight, and you can very much sense the theme of chasing happiness or some kind of saviour throughout this album. If COVID has taught us anything, it’s that our priorities need a good shake up, and in fact some things we chase and value aren’t nearly as essential as we think.” But who’s the hero in the story? That’s for you to determine…

Jenny boldly confronts her battles with depression in “Long Winter’s Day”, and talks about befriending her anxiety in “Worrying Mind”, and uplifts the listener in her heart-warming alt-country finale, “Five Foot Tall”. Added to this collection of new songs, she’s also included a new orchestral version of “Village by the Sea”, and the sequel to her popular coming-out song, “Hero in Me” with its added verse celebrating marriage equality in Australia.

With beautiful cover art by Ruth Thorp, lyrics booklet and guitar tunings included with the CD, you can buy your very own copy now, or listen on your favourite streaming platform.

The Sequel is Here!

The SEQUEL to Jenny’s popular track “Hero in Me” has just been release online!

In 2017 Australia held a plebiscite, asking the nation to decide whether same-sex marriage should be legalised in Australia. The vote saw 62% of people saying YES to marriage equality, and as of January 2018 the first same-sex marriages were celebrated.

Since her own marriage is now legally recognised in her home country, Jenny added a new verse to her crowd favourite coming out song “Hero in Me”. She has re-recorded a tasty, acousticy version of the song with her new added verse!

You can listen right here, on Spotify!

For now the track won’t be pressed to CD, but it’s currently available for your streaming pleasure on Spotify and mp3 download Cd Baby. It will soon be available on YouTube, iTunes, Apple music and more.
