Artist: Jenny Dragon
About the Episode:
Join the CAU crew at Martyr's tonight January 31st for Jenny Dragon's "A Fair Souvenir" CD Release Show.
New to the Chicago roots/Americana scene, Jenny Dragon is a six (sometimes eight) piece band that celebrates a throwback take on modern music. Jenny Dragon defines their sound as “Heavy Whimsy,” a sound that has been developing over the past two years and expresses the group’s desire to create music that is both appealing and consequential. The group seems to defy category, dabbling in a nostalgia that combines jazz, blues, country, folk, doo wop, and rock influences, and often shifting genres to best serve the story of a song. Having recorded and set to release their debut album, “A Fair Souvenir,” at Martyrs’ in Chicago, Jenny Dragon continues to write and introduce original material to their live sets at some of Chicago’s best music venues.
