Strawberry Spring

by Luminatrix

Upbeat grooves, fables, and nods to rootsy Americana all winding their way around a bittersweet core; poignant, but not dark-- it's also clever, fun, and hopeful, with a sparkling life-lust evident even in the most reflective moments

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jenna McGrath left Rochester for New York City as a teenager, where, as bass player for beloved East Village punk band Da Willys, she planted her musical roots deep in the city’s fertile underground.  She played drums and lead guitar with seminal indie-rock pioneers Uncle Wiggly, and while in The Bowery Rhythm Kings, shared the stage with Jerry Nolan (NY Dolls) and Walter Lure (Heartbreakers, The Waldos). Later in Austin, TX, Jenna joined noted Americana artist Joe West on bass and vocal harmonies, grabbing the “Best New Band in Austin” nod from the Austin Chronicle.

Her three new solo works, made with Grammy Award-winning producer Mark Kramer (Pulp Fiction, White Zombie), “Blue Heron”, “Strawberry Spring”, and “Voluptuary”, bear the lush fruits of her own musical vision and voice, lovingly tended in that fertile garden, now fully-formed and ripe for the picking.
“Blue Heron” is at once lush and stark, the tracks teem with hooks and melodies as they breeze and buzz along, feeling like garden air after a lightning strike. The lyrical touchstones are nature and the waxing and waning power positions in love; jangly vocals are tinged with a sweet vulnerability, as an (often danceable) modern sounding kinetic energy swirls around the center of a decidedly rock and roll heart. 

The tuneful melancholy of "Strawberry Spring", the title track of Jenna's second album in what's turned out to be a trilogy, feels something like wading in a forest pool-- calming, invigorating, somehow cathartic. 
You can sense ( and share) that catharsis as the album bounces along: there are poppy upbeat grooves, fables, and nods to rootsy Americana all winding their way around a bittersweet core. Poignant, but not dark-- it's also clever, fun, and hopeful, with a sparkling life-lust evident even in the most reflective moments.
