Jenny Wren and Her Borrowed Wings
Jenny Wren and Her Borrowed Wings are most positively the Blues; playing the true facts of life with inspiration, feeling and understanding.
The band delivers 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. Joining Jenny Trilsbach (vocals/double bass) are the very fine; Ben Fisher (resophonic guitar) and Ben Gallon (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, creating 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.
