front cover oblong

On May the 11th, Jenny Wren and Her Borrowed Wings will be officially releasing a new album, WHEN WE WERE LIVE, recorded live at MusicStar in Norderstedt, Germany, on our recent tour in Europe.
It is full of energy, passion, laughter, tears, whisky, and the currently rare sound of people gathered together having a great time.
Until May the 11th, to remind you of those happy times, to entertain you during these strange times, and perhaps to introduce you to the wonderful sounds of Jenny Wren and Her Borrowed Wings, we will be offering a free download of our new album, WHEN WE WERE LIVE, and recounting our 26 date tour of last Autumn with a day by day account of people, places, travel and great music. Great Times!

Thank you, we are looking forward to being live and lively, as soon as we are able.

Support for performing artists…

Dear friends, it is hard to say the right things in these difficult and strange times. With so many fellow humans falling ill in such a serious way, it can seem trite to talk about the individual struggle of performing artists and the difficult time that it is for the music industry.
With that in mind, in a very quiet and gentle way, we would like to say thank you to the fine people at Bandcamp for waiving their revenue share of all music bought on their platform until midnight tonight (20/03).
If you are stuck at home and would like some new music to entertain you or a friend, you can support us through these uncertain times by buying Jenny Wren and Her Borrowed Wings‘ music on Bandcamp. We have three albums full of heartfelt original music for your listening pleasure, and we hope to whisk you away on a musical journey, to soothe your soul and distract your mind.
We would like to thank you all for your support thus far, and we look forward to being back on stage, live and lively very soon.

A jazzed-up bombardment of rootsy musicianship – exceptional!

Jenny Wren & Her Borrowed Wings take it back to the 40s and even the prohibition era with some good time, old time Blues on their long player, The Girl on The Bike (Are You the Girl on The Bike?). The album opens with ‘Balls Mfront-cover-onlinead’, a Bluesy shuffler that really sets the tone. You could almost picture this song being performed in the speakeasies and establishments of ill repute throughout the prohibition era. ‘Showtime’ and ‘The Dirty Disease’ are further powerful R&B statements from this English combo. They showcase the prowess of the Borrowed Wings as they perform acoustic instruments with great proficiency and rhythm, a Blues masterclass. ‘So Much More’ brings the lowdown bass and adds a hard edge and grit to proceedings and ‘Cast Out the Snake’ provides one of the highlights of the record with a jazzed-up bombardment of rootsy musicianship – exceptional. The title track is a seductively charming laid-back number and ‘Hard Blues’ conveys a hard time, bad luck story through sheer Blues balladry.
The album winds down with more Americana Blues in ‘Devil’s Paw’, ‘I’m Gone’, and ’44 Years’. The closing number is the countrified ‘Get Where It Goes’ which provides one final touching moment on the record which is a real highlight to see us out.
