San Francisco Examiner reviewer Kenneth Fish writes, “She is a rock and roll temptress conjuring musical spells that no one could resist. Whether quietly purring into the microphone or seriously belting out a tune, the audience was hanging on every note and lapping up every well crafted phrase...her performance was nothing short of amazing.”
The self-described “soulful, bluesy, jazzy, folk rock artist” has released three critically lauded albums and won numerous awards for her electrifying live performances. Grinels returns to the stage following a year long, patron/fan supported "album-writing-sabbatical" in Mexico and Nicaragua, performing songs from her upcoming studio release (set for November) as well as fan favorites.
"When you end the night standing and cheering with all of your friends and 200 strangers, you know something wonderful just happened. If the stars made music they would be jealous of Jenn Grinels. …an unbeatable live experience. Goosebumps all around." -
“Her voice is just absurd. Two artists kept coming to mind – Martin Sexton and Fiona Apple. Sexton because of her vocal focus & control; Fiona Apple because of her tell-off confessional and conversational lyrics, her penchant for complex rhyme schemes, and her powerful, listen-up-buster delivery.”
Ms. Bostic has just been nominated for 2018 International Song of the Year for "Revival" and International Touring Act by the British Country Music Association. Jenn's prior achievements include five awards from the Independent Country Music Association, as well as the Leon Brettler Award from the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP).
Jenn Bostic is a soulful singer/songwriter with a hint of blues, soul, country, pop and gospel. Her emotive songwriting and powerful vocals have been touching hearts around the world. “Jealous of the Angels,” written for her late father, was championed by both Smooth Radio and BBC Radio 2. She has performed the song on BBC Breakfast, Weekend Wogan, Good Morning Sunday and Songs of Praise, and the music video has over 3 million views on YouTube. She has had 4 singles playlisted at BBC Radio 2, the most listened to radio station in Europe.
In 2012 she won five Independent Country Music Association Awards including "Best Songwriter," "Best Musician," and "Overall Winner." Bostic was also named “International Touring Artist of the Year” at the 2017 British Country Music Awards, where she gave a stunning performance that received the only standing ovation of the night.
She has performed sold out tours across the United States and Europe, and has opened for the likes of Richard Marx, Christian Kane and The Band Perry. Venues have included The Grand Ole Opry, The Ryman Auditorium and Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City.
