ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Currently based in Peculiar, Missouri, Jenna Rae's modern day country music that she calls "Cosmic Western" includes elements of bluegrass, rock n roll, and gospel. Her songs will take you from a church pew to the bottom of a whiskey bottle and somehow leave you laying in a lawn chair on the beach. She is currently touring out of a converted school bus as"Jenna & Martin" The Cosmic Western Duo, playing at Honky Tonks all across America.

"Inspired by Merle Haggard's "Workin Man Blues", I wrote a song about being a workin woman. My songwriting inspiration came from working as a registered nurse by day and musician by night for the past several years. without realizing it, i had a full album of songs about the struggles and triumphs of the American workin woman. Some stories are autobiographical and some are other women's stories that I felt needed to be told, but each one true. Being a young woman in today's America holds many opportunities that weren't there for women 30 plus years ago. During this integral point in human history, I hope Workin Woman serves to celebrate how far we have come, and inspires us to keep bettering ourselves."

The 12 track album was recorded over a three week span in the woods of Aitkin, Minnesota on Tame Fish Lake. It was produced by the other half of her Cosmic Western Duo, Martin Farrell Jr. All of the acoustic guitar, vocals, drums, banjo, and saxophone parts were recorded by Jenna. Electric guitar, bass, piano, harmonica, multi kord pedal steel, and mandolin were recorded by Martin Farrell Jr. Three tracks feature the dobro man from outer space Chad Graves, including the song "Here In Kansas" that turns from a country ballad to a bluegrass breakdown to a New Orleans style ending. Pedal steel player Mike Poholsky of the "Twang Daddies" is also featured on four tracks including "Dreamin", a simple, three chord song that has been played with many different bands over the past few years.

Kitty Wells, Neil Young, The Beach Boys, Marty Robbins, Merle Haggard, Hank Williams, Tammy Wynette, and John Hartford were just some of Jenna's influences while writing the album. "Workin Woman" is the first release on KC’s newly founded fierce americana record label Lost Cowgirl Records.
