A New Jenny 

Hello everyone,

We have some exciting news to report – we have found our new Jenny!

After a busy, sometimes overwhelming but often delightful search, we are happy to announce that Annabelle Chvostek is our new member. We auditioned so many wonderful singer-songwriters from across Canada (many thanks to all of them – Canada certainly has no shortage of talented and deicated musicians) and concluded that Annabelle was the perfect fit.

Here is an excerpt from the press release our management sent out today:

“Montreal’s Chvostek is an innovative singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who performed her first gig at the age of seven with the Canadian Opera Company. She broke on the Montreal cabaret scene in early 1997 with her soulful acoustic jazz-pop and quickly became a major presence in Montreal’s music scene. There, she’s shared the stage with Dar Williams, Veda Hille, Kinnie Starr, Martha Wainwright, Tegan and Sara, and Penny Lang. Her distinct multidisciplinary bent has also led her to undertake numerous collaborative projects in video, dance and music. Most recently, she’s been playing shows with Rae Spoon, Po Girl and Barleywik.”

Annabelle has a beautiful, rich alto voice, writes wonderfully innovative and interesting songs, and is a very strong guitarist and violinist. She’s a pretty fine person too! We are very excited to see what this collaboration brings are we hope you will like what you hear.

Happy holidays, everyone. Can’t wait to see you all in 2005!
