Jennie Arnau To Release New Record 4/13

On April 13, Jennie Arnau will release Chasing Giants, the follow up to her 2007 record Mt. Pleasant. You can check out "Bouncing Ball" from the record in the MP3 Grab below. And, that's not all. New Yorkers, you can catch Arnau when she takes up residence at The National Underground on March 10 & 24 and April 14 & 28.

Determined to find a producer who would understand her alchemy of grassroots Americana and indie rock, Jennie enlisted the help of Trina Shoemaker (Sheryl Crow, Queens of the Stone Age, Emmylou Harris). The two, along with recording engineer Phil Palazzolo (Neko Case, The New Pornographers), quickly began work on CHASING GIANTS.

“It sounds strange,” says Jennie, “but when
I went into the studio with Trina, I really didn’t know my voice. But she showed me that I knew my music better than anyone and that I had a clear vision. I learned a lot and she gave me the confidence I needed to make this album.”
