Genna & Jesse – Smaragd-Vor-Weihnachtskonzert!
Genna & Jesse (hier gehts zur homepage)
are defined by a unique alchemy born of the quirky chemistry, intricate vocal harmonies and ardent storytelling which infuse their songwriting and vibrant performances. With whispers (and sometimes roars) of folk, blue-eyed soul, jazz, blues, torch song, and popular music from the ‘60s and ‘70s, their self-chosen genre “retro soul pop” doesn’t fully encompass what they conjure up in their joyful live shows and sensual, deliberate albums. These two shrug off music industry conventions in favor of doing what feels good, and this genre-defying dedication to being current and free has an exciting and irresistible effect.
Drawing inspiration from their romantic nomadic lifestyle, Genna & Jesse might best be described as modern troubadours, generously offering listeners glimpses of their always-moving world with something fresh, true and genuinely independent.
Genna & Jesse are currently touring internationally to promote their newest release, “Say OK.” Their ongoing tour, which includes club venues, house concerts, restaurants, cafes, and festivals, is being done with as small a carbon footprint as possible.

Thank you both so much…you are awesome musicians and awesome people to host. Looking forward to having you back.“

And I suspect there is an angel in heaven without a voice, because Jenna is using it.”
