As summer begins to turn into fall and you start to pull out your scarves, beanies, and coats, what better fall accessory could you have than the sweet crooning of Jenny O.? Nothing, that’s what! And, lucky for you, Jenny O. is kicking off a short fall tour with Father John Misty. With a debut full-length album slated for release on February 5, 2013, expect to see much more of Jenny O. in the months to come. Until then, stay ahead of the curb and check out Jenny O. with Father John Misty on September 26 and September 28 at The Independent in San Francisco!
With She & Him seemingly silent since their sophomore release, the music world needs a new sweetheart to pine over and cause heartaches. In comes Jenny O., with songs reminiscent of 1960s singer-songwriter pop, and the powerful vocals to back such a sound. Originally hailing from New York, Jenny O. found her way to the best coast (California), not unlike J. Tillman, frontman of Father John Misty, who upped and left Seattle when he embarked on his new solo venture.
Jenny O. presents with a rugged, Midwest girl from next door look – on the complete opposite style spectrum as Zooey Deschanel. But don’t judge the girl by her clothes. Her image does not offer an accurate preview of the sound Jenny O. brings. Her debut EP, Home, is packed with five songs that reflect the contradictory image she portrays – joyful yet deeply affected, familiar yet unique. The catchy hooks that back Jenny O.’s sweet vocals lull you into believing this is just another string of 5 flippant pop songs – but the lyrical underpinnings of Jenny O.’s songs are strikingly emotional.
Teed up for the February 5, 2013 release of her debut full length Automechanic, Jenny O. hits the road with Father John Misty (a Rabbits Black favorite). Automechanic promises deeper and more open songs in which Jenny O. can touch the vulnerable human part of you because of her genuine performance – and of course, through her disarming songwriting.
