Jenn Grant – Songwriters Series

| The Mack
Jenn Grant expands to a galactic realm never explored by the songwriter before with her latest album, Paradise. While her 2014 JUNO twice-nominated Compostela, focused on Jenn’s own personal experience of loss, this time she points the compass towards the epic and intimate and explores a new depth of sound.

“I wanted to explore new soundscapes,” Jenn explains when describing how piano came to be the primary song-writing instrument. Grant created new shapes and colours with an array of new instrumentation and song collaboration with producer Daniel Ledwell. I thought about my singing much more. I feel like I am a completely different artist from when I began performing. I don’t feel like I really heard my own voice until recently.” 

With the International success of Compostela, Jenn spent three years touring the world and playing to over 300 audiences, both festivals and in concert settings with sold out shows from London to Vancouver. Finally coming off the road, Grant retreated to the secluded studio by her home in Lake Echo, Nova Scotia. What emerged was Paradise  an album that sees a new dimension in Jenn’s songwriting with new depths of sonic beauty and melodic landscapes, touching upon balladry, R&B, and electronic music along the way.Paradise’s songs reach out with world-weary awareness, that’s most evident on lead single “Galaxies,” a song that is the aural equivalent of star-gazing. 

Jenn Grant’s voice and songwriting has been celebrated the world over by critics and industry alike. Described as one of the ‘best singers in the world’ by her ongoing collaborator, Buck 65 (CA), “captivating’ by The Line of Best Fit (UK), and “work of a painter born in paradise” by The Sydney Morning Herald (AU).

“…one of the best singers in the world.”Rich Terfry, CBC Radio 2

What are Relaxed Performances?

 

Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.

 

Relaxed Performances offered during the 2021 Charlottetown Festival:
