Straight up and stripped back acoustic Rhythm and Blues that will make you dance, then make you cry. Jenny Wren and Her Borrowed Wings deliver a jazzed-up bombardment of rootsy musicianship that effortlessly intertwines with their stripped back earthy core. The result; a unique and impassioned sound, laid bare and beautiful in its honesty.
The front woman and double bassist, Jenny Trilsbach, is the modest centrepiece of the band, often found at the back of the stage, it is especially her phenomenal vocals that make this band a special experience. A beautiful and powerful hurricane starts up the moment she begins to sing. Raw and tender, and full of emotion, a delicious rough pearl is nestled between her vocal chords that manages to touch the hearts of the listener.
With their dancing dirt-road guitars, joining Jenny Trilsbach on her powerhouse vocals and heartbeat double bass, are the extremely fine; Ben Fisher, on his butterflonic resophonic guitar, and Ben Gallon, on his groove holding, neck throttling acoustic guitar. Playing their instruments with an intuitive togetherness, the interesting sound of this trio wins them more friends and fans with each performance.
Across their four fantastic albums, the band showcase their mesmerising percussion-free acoustic blues with great song-writing. They create powerful Rhythm and Blues statements that come straight from the heart. Their newest release, When We Were Live, recorded from a concert on their latest tour in Europe, is a live album that captures them at their best, just as they like it, on stage, live, and lively.
