"The sultry singer’s first solo release, North Star, is a solid collection of martini-sipping, jazz lounge-ready, soul-influenced tracks."
"With straightforward and unabashedly honest lyrics.... Wren shows that she has the rare ability to combine technical talent with visceral emotion. The result of this combination is truly captivating"
"There is something intensly satisfying about watching a performer relinquish all of their energy and throw their heart into what they are currently doing. Wren was a prime example of such a performance. Her effusiveness is her endearing trademark"
“Indeed, yearning, reflection and the desire for a sense of place speak strongly in the songs on North Star. “Patience is not my best virtue/ I wanna let go of the past,” Wren croons amongst a purring guitar lick and meandering saxophone on her first single, “Release.””
"Sultry like a summer day in Portland"
"that’s why Jeni’s voice is so captivating when she sings. Her vocals are alluring on their own, but when combined with the heart behind her lyrics, they’re downright moving."
