Nashville native Jenny Gill just released her debut EP, The House Sessions. The daughter of Vince Gill is a proud country music legacy but possesses her own unique style. The House Sessions is a beautiful combination of sultry vocals and soulful melodies. Her strong writing abilities are prevalent on 5 of the 6 tracks, and her groovy rendition of an old classic “The Letter” does not disappoint.
Her music is definitely being talked about. That Nashville Sound has recently added Jenny’s heartfelt “Your Shadow” as one of there contenders for their 2016 Song of the Year award. “It’s phenomenally well-written, providing a glimpse into what it must be like making your own name in a field in which your (last) name has already been made…Jenny carves out a substantial piece of art under her own name out of a tribute to where she comes from.”
The MTSU graduate began her music industry adventure working for an independent publisher as a song plugger. She spent several years working closely with songwriters and it became the inspiration that launched her into her own songwriting. In the meantime, her Dad began his own dream of building a home studio and the timing of the two couldn’t have been more perfect. Cleverly named “The House” Vince’s studio didn’t just inspire the title for the EP, it helped set the perfect laid back tone that Jenny was after. The House Sessions also delivers a tasteful balance between her softer seductive tones and powerhouse abilities.
Jenny is a seasoned singer who is currently touring with her stepmother Amy Grant as a backup vocalist. She will be appearing at this year’s Christmas at the Ryman: with Amy Grant & Vince Gill. The release of her first solo project certainly has the potential to earn Jenny a big piece of her own spotlight. The House Sessions is currently available on iTunes, CDBaby, and jennygillmusic.com.
