Jenne delivers a distinct and beautiful vocal quality that often takes her audiences off guard. Her lyrics speak to the human condition, the mystique of the natural world and creative maladaptation to modern civilization. Jenne gives equal weight to putting creative spins on the songs of her musical heroes Vic Chesnutt, Melanie Safka, Neil Young, Frank Black, Isaac Brock, and Kristin Hersh, among others.
Jenne draws on a background of diverse musical explorations from fronting a punk band to teaching history and composition of blues and hip-hop in public school; performing sacred songs in ceremony and organizing junkyard bands at youth camps; song-swapping in Kenya, Africa and a treasured performance with Peter Yarrow as part of an anti-bullying initiative.
A native of Asheville, North Carolina, Jenne works concurrently as a nature-based, somatic therapist and holds an MA in Ecopsychology from Naropa University.
