New Review! “Jenn Grinels steals the show at City Winery Napa…”

Thank you to San Francisco Culture & Events Examiner, Kenneth Fish, for his AMAZING review of Jenn’s recent performance at City Winery Napa: “I found myself utterly captivated…upon taking the stage, her presence was a force to be reckoned with…whether Grinels was quietly purring into the microphone or seriously belting out a tune, the audience […]
