Jenny Banai is an old soul and a child of the nineties, and as such, has inherited both the contemplative wonder and the wardrobe of her parents. She is a fresh and authentic voice who pairs powerhouse vocal abilities with unique and clever pop arrangements and whose live show commands attention. “Her voice is agile and expressive, with uncommon power and control… I’ve watched her stun audiences in clubs and living rooms—including my own!—with her intriguing songs and her charming, unpretentious presentation. (Canadian Rapper, Shad)
Following her self-released debut album, Flowering Head (2015), Jenny independently undertook four Canadian tours, collaborated on the documentary Where We Come Home, and early in 2017, her song Boars was featured on the TV and web series The Drive. Most recently, Jenny received Fraser Valley Music Awards 2018 Folk Artist Of The Year.
Jenny is in the midst of recording her second full-length album, Couch Walker at Afterlife Studios in Vancouver with co-producer Scott Currie and engineer John Raham. Jenny often garners comparison to Leslie Feist, particularly circa The Reminder. Her creative influences range from Andy Shauf to Patrick Watson to The Cranberries. She blends jazz, folk, and rock into sophisticated pop music that both celebrates and laments the dynamic of human relationships and the relationship with one’s self and the metaphysical.
