On her new EP ‘Live, Raw and Intimate’ Jennie Lena takes a fresh dive into the styles she grew up with and loves: Soul, Blues and Funk.
This Amsterdam based gem is blessed with an outstanding voice and a natural gift for songwriting. She is a distinctively emotive artist, combining timeless music with her own contemporary twist, constantly walking the line between pain and hope.
Recorded before an enthusiastic crowd of fans during her Club Tour, charismatic singer Jennie Lena and her electrifying four-piece band and backing vocalists presented a set list that included music from her latest album ‘To Be Honest’ as well as renditions of some of her favorite songs, including Nina Simone’s “Work Song“, Curtis Mayﬁeld’s “Hard Times” and “Heartbreak Hotel” by the Jacksons. Over the years, music critics have marveled at Jennie’s dynamic stage presence.
This recording exempliﬁes nothing short of that but takes on another dimension as the room is ﬁlled with connection between Jennie and the audience whilst pouring out her heart and soul on the stage.
