Written from the rollercoaster of life, Jenny has ventured into eclectic waters for her 6th album. Wild & Free is an album about the quest to find freedom from old haunts, ghosts, old beliefs, societal norms, city slickin’ styles, loneliness, facing demons and dancin’ while you do it. In the title track she exclaims “I wonder who I’d be when I’m wild and when I’m free… I wonder who I’d be, who could I be?”
In her most flavoursome of albums, this wild assortment of originals ranges funky blues grooves, banjo plucking roots, pensive piano ballads, down-to-earth country vibes, that old sweet folk tang, and a random anti-gospel gospel song to keep you guessing.
With sounds akin to Tracy Chapman & Bonnie Raitt, our multi-talented artist played acoustic & electric guitars, banjo, harmonica, piano/keys, mandolin, and organ/synths, with magic from drummer Michael Quigley, sassy backing vocals from Melinda Jackson & Miranda Murphy, and Sean Carey driving bass and tasty slide/lead guitars from Sean Carey. A song for every mood.
To add icing to the cake, this is the first time Jenny has painted her own front cover for the album. Music and graphics combined to create “Wild & Free”.
