Jenn Grinels In The Media

“…absolutely fabulous! (She) deserved that standing ovation…phenomenal, absolutely phenomenal; if you ever get a chance to listen to her music do…if someone is worth seeing, we will certainly recommend them and (she) is at the top of that list. I was bowled over tonight.” – Luis Magdeleno, Art Rocks! 247

“…pitch-perfect, powerhouse vocal performance…” - Express Milwaukee (Shank Hall, Milwaukee)

“…why is this woman not yet a superstar?  She has killer looks – flowing red hair with come-hither indigo eyes – and a powerful yet sensitive voice capable of evoking a wide spectrum of intense emotions in her audience.” – Jane Spietz, The Scene Newspaper (Wisconson)

Most would be quick to compare Jenn with other singer/songwriters such as; Norah Jones, Ingrid Michaelson, or Jewel but she has an era-less style to her music. You can just as easily see her on stage singing her own modern day music as well as belting out a Judy Garland, Whitney Houston, or Jefferson Airplane cover with ease and perfection. There’s no stopping this woman, Jenn is a true talent with staying power and is already a favorite on college radio across the country.” – Christina Thompson, Female Indie and Alternative Arts Examiner

“You’ll travel back in time when you listen to the third track, “Don’t Wanna Be Happy.” It sounds like it could be released in an era decades before Jenn’s time. The woodwind arrangement and use of horns makes this a refreshing change of scenery from most of today’s popular music.”
- Melissa Landrin, Indie Music Reviewer Magazine

“Her voice is just absurd. Two artists kept coming to mind – Martin Sexton and Fiona Apple. Sexton because of her vocal focus & control. Fiona Apple because of her tell-off confessional/conversational lyrics, her penchant for complex rhyme schemes, and her powerful, listen-up-buster delivery.” – (San Francisco, CA)

“Jenn Grinels is the real, talented epitome of today’s best indie music.” – The San Diego Reader

“Her voice is truly phenomenal” – SD CityBeat

“Jenn Grinels is at the forefront of San Diego’s singing elite. When it comes to chops and the balance of command, control, and freedom that go into exceptional singing, this lady stands alone. Even her softest, most subtle lyrical licks are as gripping as the powerfully belted lines that are emblematic of her art.” – The San Diego Troubadour

“Jenn Grinels seriously should be a star by now.  She has the engaging vocals, snappy lyrics, camera-ready looks and natural charisma to capture any audience.  Note to the Music Industry: Get on it.” – (Los Angeles)

“Stunning vocals and original songs; an extraordinary new discovery.  It will be interesting to see how the future unfolds for this soon-to-be legendary singer.” – P.T. Rothschild, Full Value Reviews (Temecula, CA)

“I was immobilized by awe.  Grinels was amazing; when she plays – hearts open.” – (Saratoga, CA)

“Grinels began to sing and the whole room stopped breathing. She has a dazzling voice, Chrissie Hynde’s mojo, Rickie Lee Jones’ feel for the jazz in the spaces between notes and a unfailing sense of the dynamics called for in each moment . . . The words fell from her mouth like gems. A woman in the corner of the cafe cried.””
- Southeast Missourian, Bluebird Cafe (Nashville, TN)

” . . . one of the most powerful female singers I’ve seen in years.” – Kevin Wiggins, (Los Angeles, CA)

“You know you are listening to something special when upon first hearing it, it instantly becomes part of your collective being and you feel like it always has been.” – William Peter George II, BTN Music (Philadelphia, PA)

“. . . an incredibly memorable, impassioned, and gorgeous set of music.” – (San Francisco, CA)

“Wow wow wow. Never a wrong note, soulfully soft, heartfelt, passionately louder, gritty when it was needed then whispered, gifted . . . you can see the world change just a little bit for that moment that she is communing with it. – (Albuquerque, NM)

“Goosebumps. The audience hangs on to every note she delivers and seems to connect with her sound, lyrics and style on a level that is rare.  Her stage presence is effortless and personable. I felt as if the entire audience and I were good friends of Jenn’s, sitting around listening to her play songs we already knew and loved. Part of her allure is her genuine personality which shines through instantly. Part of it is her incredible voice and vocal range. After Grinels performed a few songs, someone at my table remarked,”How is she not like, majorly famous!? She is incredible.”Courtney Smith,

“that voice… the kind of voice that could soulfully sing you the phone book, but Grinels insists on filling you with poetry that would rival Ann Sexton on a focused day, and Ani DiFranco in one of her tender moods . . . she is simply amazing.” – Fran Snyder, (Memphis, TN)

“Her voice is killer, rich and full-bodied like a fine Bordeaux, and it slinks around the fabric of her acoustic guitar with heartfelt blues . . . ”
- Tony Smith, (San Jose, CA)

“Grinels’ natural strength and talent guarantees superstardom in her future” – The MCLA Beacon (North Adams, MA)
