Jenna Cunningham is a California-based singer/songwriter that brings a refreshing new take on the term “art pop.” The Syracuse, New York native initiated her exodus onto the West Coast in 2017 in pursuit of aggrandizing the potential of her musicality. Starting off with the family piano and the clarinet, Jenna has sought to document her experiences in the form of contrasting melodies. While her vocal performance calls back to the ballroom darlings of the 50’s and 60’s, the electronica and jazz-inspired melodies complimenting Jenna’s displaced vocals inject her music with the innovative trends of today.
The Rare Occasions
"The Rare Occasions are an indie rock band who puts their own dark spin on retro. A dizzying cacophony of angular riffs and dripping wet lyrics, the Boston post-punks first formed in a Tufts University practice space in 2012. Since then, The Rare Occasions have performed for festival audiences at SXSW in Austin and CMJ in New York City and NAMM in Los Angeles, self-produced two critically-acclaimed EPs, and opened for internationally touring acts including Guster, Dirty Heads, Lupe Fiasco, AJR, and Knox Hamilton. Their blistering psych-anthem "Dysphoric" took home the coveted 'Song of the Year' in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest."
