Quicksilver, Alison Krauss... the list goes on.I had the incredible fortune of meeting Bill Monroe backstage at a bluegrass festival when I was 9 years old, Jenni Lyn recalls. The two of us played a song together and without hesitation, I played Two Bits right when he finished playing Shave and a Haircut. He got a kick out of that and just before he went on stage he leaned down and said to me, Little girl one day youre gonna be a star. Bill Monroe was no fool. Over her time as a solo artist and as a member of several collaborative projects (including the all female band Della Mae) she racked up a number of prestigious awards including IBMA Emerging Artist of the Year (Della Mae), IBMA Recorded Event of the Year (The Daughters of Bluegrass) and a coveted GRAMMY nomination for Best Bluegrass Album (Della Mae). Shes graced the stage of Nashvilles beloved Ryman Auditorium, as well as countless festivals including Bonnaroo, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass and Cambridge Folk. Her career continues to blossom with each appearance in the 30+ countries shes performed in worldwide. From baby boomers to millennials, seasoned festival goers to country converts, Jenni Lyns music offers a current approach to the evolving bluegrass sound, while maintaining the perfect balance of down home comfort. Her broad span of shared experiences and collaborations has shaped her as an artist and as a performer, all culminating in an exciting new album that showcases her well-developed repertoire of songs. The forthcoming release, Burn Another Candle, is sweetened with originality, seasoned with love and strengthened with a solid work ethic and commitment to her solo career. Fans will connect with the energy and feel of the music, a testament to the heart Jenni Lyn has brought to this new chapter in her musical journey - a journey that youll savor with every nuanced note.
