Jenny Berkel :: Pale Moon Kid

by

jenny-berkel_palemoodkid_cd-coverDe Canadese singer/songwriter Jenny Berkel geniet vooral bekendheid omdat ze in de band van het fenomeen Daniel Romano speelt. Pale Moon Kid is haar tweede soloplaat en niet alleen geproduceerd maar ook grotendeels volgespeeld door Romano. Het resultaat is een fantastische mix van sixtiesfolkpop en psychedelica. Geweldige liedjes, een bedrieglijk lieflijke stem en Romano die met zijn prominente gitaarspel alle risico’s van de wereld neemt en zichzelf overtreft. Een klasse-CD.

Berkel’s forthcoming sophomore album, Pale Moon Kid, was recorded with gifted producer Daniel Romano and will be released across Europe in fall 2016 with Popup Records. Described by Exclaim! Magazine as “a smouldering sound to behold” and “acutely poetic,” this glowing new collection reveals writing that has grown even sharper and more lyrical. Enthralling, starkly beautiful, hushed and poetic.”
Since releasing her debut album, Here on a Wire, Canadian singer-songwriter Jenny Berkel has been intoxicating listeners with her evocative songs and voice. Both on her own and as part of Daniel Romano’s Trilliums band, her consistent touring has garnered fans across the country and ocean.
Born in the heart of Ontario’s lush forests and fields, Berkel’s music has drawn her from rural Ontario to Winnipeg to Toronto and now, finally, to Montreal. This constant shifting finds its rest in her songs: her lyrics are dreamy and piercing, shimmering with memories and glittering with the quiet solitude of a night sky.
Your voice is a home I move into / Like a half dream, I hold onto / the words you say
Berkel’s writing is at once gentle and hard-hitting. Her lush and low voice ornaments her poetry with melodies that soar high and clear before spilling back down again. Berkel’s forthcoming sophomore album, Pale Moon Kid, was recorded with gifted producer Daniel Romano and will be released in autumn 2016 with Pheromone Recordings. Steeped in sparkling guitars, sparse piano, pulsing bass and percussion, this glowing new collection reveals writing that has grown even sharper and more lyrical.
Like a half dream, Pale Moon Kid will indeed be one to hold onto.
