About Jenee Halstead
If you detect something expansive and mysterious in the music of Jenee Halstead, a freedom that owes no debt to place and time — or even genre — you understand where she’s coming from. And where she’s headed ... deeper into the essence of song.

Her evolution from folk singer to ethereal rocker mirrors her journey from the West Coast to the East. As a youngster in Spokane, Washington, Jenee followed the lead of hippie parents and explored music freely. She heard something in it all — from medieval choral works, to Led Zeppelin to Dolly Parton — and it tugged at her, even as she earned her degree at Gonzaga.

To build on her personal, almost-secret songwriting, Jenee moved to Boston, where the seeds for many of her influences were planted. While Berklee College of Music was part of the allure, the academic approach turned her off, and away. “They make everybody use a laptop,” Jenee says, lamenting that mechanical method. “I thought, ‘Bob Dylan didn’t write “Blowin’ in the Wind” on a laptop! I don’t need this.’”

As it turns out, all she needed was a few nights with the working musicians in Cambridge’s basement Bohemia, Lizard Lounge — and an introduction to Patty Griffin, with whom she startlingly shares a vocal quality and artistic bent. “Patty Griffin was a complete revelation,” Jenee says. “It just opened up a whole new world to me. ... Patty Griffin gave me permission to just write.”

And write she did. It took just over a year for Jenee to record and release a debut album, “The River Grace,” and, with it, claim an Emerging Artist award at the 2009 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival. Indeed, the stylings on that debut made her a darling of the folk scene and won plaudits from Telluride and Mountain Stage. But, much like her coast-to-coast journey, Jenee Halstead’s evolution through her following three albums has been nothing short of revelatory.

Her latest release, “Edge of the World,” adds to the indefinable soundscape in which her soft and supple voice floats so exquisitely that the Boston Herald felt it “like sorceress music, rings of smoke through the trees and the bells of Rhymney,” while comparing Jenee’s working relationship with new producer Sean McLaughlin to that of Emmylou Harris and Daniel Lanois for the way it “embedded a tremendous voice in an otherworldly, shadowy soundscape.”

Spot on. With her gift for wonderfully evocative lyrical imagery, delivered with such a compelling voice, it’s easy to foresee that Jenee’s unfettered songwriting will continue to rise — like those swirling rings of smoke — into the expansive sky, and far beyond the edge of the world.

Reviews for 'Edge of The World':

"Her new EP, “Edge of the World," hits my ears like sorceress music, rings of smoke through the trees and the bells of Rhymney." - Jed Gottlieb, Boston Herald

"With her new ep Edge Of The World she largely maintains the indie-americana nature of her previous release but swaps the avant-garde side of it for a much more accessible, rich, moody and beautifully produced sound." - Eric van Domburg Scipio, Heaven Magazine

With a voice that cuts clean and deep like the sharpest of blades, she leaves a mark that won’t be fading anytime soon with 'Edge of the World'." - Brian Carrol, Redline Roots

"She takes you to the edge with some of the most beautifully contemplative, ambient arrangements of recent times. I put this record on and was awestruck." - Steve Morse, Berklee College of Music

Spring 2018 House Concert Dates in Holland, Germany, Belgium, UK

Hi Folks,

  I am looking for a handful of house concert dates to make my schedule sing for Spring 2018. 

I will be playing solo acoustic, but can bring an (tasty) electric guitarist or bassist to fill the space if that helps.

I have been touring Holland and Germany for about five years now and would love to branch more into Germany and the UK.

 

Here is the schedule so far:

Fri 20 Apr Acoustic…
