Award-winning musician Jenn Grinels is a dynamic songwriter, powerhouse vocalist and all-around entertainer that will absolutely dazzle you.
Jenn is making her return to the Red Clay Theater after a year-long hiatus spent writing material for her recently completed new studio album on the heels of an incredibly successful Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign.
The Nashville based singer/songwriter has spent the last ten years playing nearly 1500 concerts all over the world headlining shows from Denver to Dublin and everywhere in between, as well as supporting artists like Marc Broussard, Edwin McCain and the 10,000 Maniacs, even prompting San Francisco Examiner reviewer Kenneth Fish to write, “Grinels steals the show. She is a rock and roll temptress conjuring musical spells that no one could resist. Whether quietly purring into the microphone or seriously belting out a tune, the audience was hanging on every note and lapping up every well-crafted phrase. (She) has the rare gift of being a well-rounded performer who engages the audience fully and openly, sharing the performer as much as the performance. And her performance was nothing short of amazing.”
"Grinels began to play and 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 an unfailing sense of the dynamics called for in each moment...words fell from her mouth like gems."

"When you end the night standing and cheering with all of your friends and 200 strangers, you know something wonderful just happened. If the stars made music they would be jealous of Jenn Grinels. …an unbeatable live experience. Goosebumps all around." -

“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 and conversational lyrics, her penchant for complex rhyme schemes, and her powerful, listen-up-buster delivery.”
