“the sass of Nikki Lane mixed with the clever
wordplay of Brandy Clark” – Rolling Stone Country
Praised as having “the sass of Nikki Lane mixed with the clever wordplay of Brandy Clark” (Rolling Stone Country), newcomer Jenny Tolman announces her debut album There Goes The Neighborhood, due July 19, 2019. On it, she conceptualizesJennyville, a fictional community that chronicles the truths – even the uncomfortable parts – about real people, including herself.
The album’s wry, brazen single “High-Class White Trash” is available everywhere tomorrow (3.29) and can be streamed here: https://youtu.be/sgBYm30mDYA
Produced by Grammy-nominated Dave Brainard (Brandy Clark, Jamey Johnson), the 13-track album is entirely written or co-written by Tolman and features a wealth of songwriters, including Brainard, Mark D. Sanders (“I Hope You Dance”), Rory Bourke(“You Look So Good In Love”), Jeff Silbar (“Wind Beneath My Wings”), Rob Hatch (“I Don’t Dance”, “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away”), Aaron Raitiere (three songs on Miranda Lambert’s The Weight of These Wings), and John Goodwin (who’s written for Brad Paisley and Michael McDonald).
Drawing on elements ranging from Dolly Parton and Roger Miller to The Beatles and Amy Winehouse, Tolman’s personal story is as unique as her influence. While her family upbringing is rooted in a Massachusetts Dance Hall, she was raised in Music City and learned to explore herself by way of sharp-witted songwriting. A daughter of a Barbershop quartet turned 90’s country band staple, Jenny is uniquely herself, and her songwriting style is best described as melodramatic, acute and a face-slap of reality. Visually, she’s all things fringe… stamped with rhinestones.
Tolman has opened for Alabama, Michael Ray, Brandy Clark, Cole Swindell, and others. She plans to announce a 2019 tour in the coming weeks. For more information, visitjennytolman.com.
