“Sensual, frank and fearless”, said Calgary Fast Forward Magazine about performing songwriter Jenny Allen. Her first solo recording, ‘Something to Say’, produced by Canadian folk legend Valdy, led to invitations at major festivals both in Canada and the US and widespread critical acclaim. Opening for the likes of Taj Mahal, Jennifer Warnes, and Shawn Colvin, her music invited comparisons to Mary Chapin Carpenter and Tracy Chapman, swinging effortlessly between a rich variety of styles such as roots, blues, pop and rock.
On the heels of her acclaimed sophomore release ‘If I Fall’, Allen joined forces with Calgary-based songwriters Lin Elder and Lori Reid. Their trio ‘The Fates’ became one of Alberta¹s most beloved concert acts, touring extensively throughout Western Canada.
Continuing to write and perform as a solo artist, well-seasoned with experience, insight, and emotional impact. Jenny is captivating audiences with her songs and stage presence, clearly demonstrating she’s a musical force to be reckoned with.
