The honeymoon continues for East Coast nightingale Jenn Grant, who is set to release her third album on Six Shooter Records on September 25, 2012. With The Beautiful Wild, Jenn follows love's twisted, tangled path deep into the heart's jungle. The new record is about finding the courage to lose oneself in the wilderness, in all of its savage and sublime experiences.
The dense, exotic sounds of The Beautiful Wild depart from the giddy blush of Honeymoon Punch, Jenn Grant's Juno Nominated and Polaris Long Listed previous album. There is a mature solemnity to be found that creates a new intimacy and immediacy with the listener. Jenn Grant's intuitive ability to express emotion has helped to define her as one of Canada's premiere vocalists; even in the darkest corners of the wilderness, her prismatic, iridescent voice continues to sparkle, dancing over adventurous new layers that include harp, flute and sitar.
Jenn Grant is a lively member of a thriving East Coast artist community. The Beautiful Wild features many notable locals, including Old Man Luedecke, Rose Cousins, Erin Costello, Kinley Dowling, David Christiansen and the Halifax Boys' Honour Choir.
"She's one of the best singers in the world right now." – Buck 65 (Rich Terfry, CBC Radio 2 Drive), The Coast
As a founding member of Punchbuggy, touring member of Kathleen Edwards' band and contributor to the Weakerthans' The Falcon Lake Incident album, the indie folk of Jim Bryson is about as Canadian as it gets.
