Iowa and Vine – Six Crucial Questions For Musician Jen Gloeckner

***

We heard Jen Gloeckner’s songs and immediately we were hooked.

Why? They’re so different. Jen’s voice is mature and soulful; her accompaniment is fit for soundtracks.

How would we compare the Iowa native? Hmmm, maybe if Tom Waits had a sister who liked Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (OMD).

Jen’s new album Vine is out now – and features John Ashton (Psychedelic Furs), Angela Mattson (In The Valley Below), and Henry Padovani (original guitarist and founding member of The Police).

It’s cool stuff. Soak it up.
