Biography

Jenny McCormick is a performer who seems able to move between the traditional folk clubs and the new folk and acoustic scene with ease. A singer who wanted to be a writer before she started to concentrate on songs, it was the storytelling aspect that first drew her to traditional material. Receiving Radio 2 airplay, Jenny has played support to the likes of Devon Sproule, John Smith and Spiers & Boden.

2011 brings the release of a brand new album, Sweet Demon, and Jenny’s love of folklore and poetry is more visible than ever in her own songwriting. The self-penned Evie draws the listener into an intimate dream world, blending desire and reality with its references of windswept hills and star-crossed lovers while The Lancashire Fusilier is a bitter message from a new recruit to his ill-caring girlfriend. The album also contains a co-write between Jenny and Sam Genders (of Tunng and The Accidental). For all its imagery of monsters and chariots, Monocle, is a beautifully uplifting and romantic highlight.

Other news from the last year is that Jenny has joined the long running Memory band and recording on their new album. With a cast of fantastic singers and musicians including Sam Carter, John Smith and Nancy Wallace, Oh My Days is released 7th February 2011. Already receiving 4 star reviews Mojo, hails it as “proffer[ing} folk music as a thing of both cockle-warming familiarity and subtle innovation.”
