ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jenn Taranto is a singer, first and foremost. Her music, at this early point in her career, has been very mellow, ambient and serious and relies heavily on violins and vocal harmonies. Jenn’s debut album, Move on from Me, released in May 2006, was recorded in her apartment and reflects the serious and obsessive part of Jenn’s personality. Most songs explore common themes such as her behavior in relationships and her inability to let things go. Dan MacIntosh from Indie-Music.com wrote, “There is a sadness and a beauty to Jenn Taranto’s music, and it’s not always clear which of these two distinct descriptions will have the final say.” The album, which Jenn first planned to record using vocal and guitar layering, evolved to combine a great deal of layering violin parts, performed by Katie Quann. Much of Katie’s work was improvised. Justin Kipp, Jenn’s boyfriend and musician, influenced the overall orchestration of the album.

Jenn completed a West Coast tour this summer in support of the release, and found her audiences to be very receptive. Local press in Boston, where she lives, such as the Northeast Performer and Metronome Magazine have taken interest in her work and Jenn has been featured in both publications. Along with her two violinists, Katie Quann and Teresa Fiorenza, and Karina DaCosta singing harmonies, Jenn performs locally at Lizard Lounge, Toad, Club Passim, and Abbey Lounge, as well as the surrounding New England area. They also have shows in NY, where Jenn is originally from, and have played at The Knitting Factory, The Bitter End, CBs Gallery, and Laila Lounge. Jenn performs regularly at train stops in Boston, which has immensely helped her to develop a local following as well as helping her to quickly sell many copies of the album. She has performed in London, St. Barths, and Salt Lake City as well.

This year, Jenn is anxious to push her sound and career even further. She is looking forward to performing and touring more and is excited to write songs that will support a bigger sound, with more strings and percussive instruments, and to really explore the full capabilities of her voice.

There is sadness and a beauty to Jenn Taranto’s music, and it’s not always clear
There is sadness and a beauty to Jenn Taranto’s music, and it’s not always clear which of these two distinct descriptions will have the final say. She creates folk music filled out with violin, keyboard, and multi-tracked vocals, to give it a fuller, moodier sound.

There is a hint of romantic resignation in many of these songs, and this impression is no more evident than on “The Window You Looked Out.” On it, Taranto sings to herself:

No smiling
When we drive by your house
No waving
From the window you looked out
No laughing
In the rooms we sat in
Where you are is where you’ll stay ...

Taranto sings about lovelier things on “Fall at Your Beauty,” by vocalizing, “I fall at your beauty, I always think that it’s better.” But the beauty is mainly in Taranto’s voice, rather than her lyrics. Even one titled “By The Sea,” which details the ocean’s beatific qualities, also imagines an ex lover walking along its shore.

This is not intellectual, thinking music, even though it's smart. Instead, listening to it is a lot like saturating oneself in a large body of water, such as the ocean, just to feel its engulfing affects. Move On From Me allows one to bathe in Jenn Tarento’s beautiful sadness.

FLIPSIDE of Haters Magazine

Beautifully recorded and intricate.
Jenn Taranto is a package deal. Singer, songwriter,
guitarist. Beautiful on all counts.

He album is very pleasant to listen to. Just singing and open acoustic guitar. Definite sitting on the end of the bed music.

Jenn does not really sound like these other artists, but if you like Clannad, Enya, Cat Stevens, Jena Keaney, and Rachmaninov, you will enjoy this soulfully toned music.

Buy a good set of headphones for your discman, because there was alot of mastering effort put into some very simple effects which complement the straightforward and sparse singer/guitar structure. The CD sounds best on a nice expensive home system in a room with wood floors. It's the next best thing, but not quite as fun as a live show, which you can sometimes catch at Toad, The Lizard Lounge, and Club Passim in Cambridge.

Stirring
Taranto shows off her considerable vocal talent without being showy. She pushes the boundaries of traditional folk in a release so stirring its songs always end up in my ipod.
