Teitur (Tie-tor), left his homeland, the remote, beautiful, wild and weather beaten Faroe Islands in the far North Atlantic as a teenager. He was convinced that if he wanted to follow his dream of making his own music he had to go somewhere with the access to the technology and musical professionalism that he felt wasn’t available at home.
Ten years after the release of his first album, Poetry & Aeroplanes he has come full circle returning both to home and his musical roots to record his sixth album Story Music. Those ten years and his experiences gave him the conviction that he had to make his next record on The Faroes, so in April of this year saw Teitur recording in the brand new Studio Bloch in Torshavn, recently built by his long time sound engineer Jonas Bloch Danielsen in a 130 year old former ice factory. He had a collection of songs and compositions, with which he says he set out to challenge the conventions of pop songwriting.
For fans of: Norah Jones, Van Morrison, Brandi Carlile.
The dynamic songwriter, powerhouse vocalist, and all-round entertainer wows critics and enchants fans with every performance. Jenn Grinels has performed more than 1500 concerts across the U.S. and abroad. Whether headlining her own tours or sharing the stage with acts such as 10,000 Maniacs, Marc Broussard or Edwin McCain, she consistently leaves audiences spellbound.
San Francisco Examiner reviewer Kenneth Fish writes, “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...her performance was nothing short of amazing.”
The self-described “soulful, bluesy, jazzy, folk rock artist” has released three critically lauded albums and won numerous awards for her electrifying live performances. Grinels returns to the stage following a year long, patron/fan supported "album-writing-sabbatical" in Mexico and Nicaragua, performing songs from her upcoming studio release (set for November) as well as fan favorites.
