The first songs were scribbled at the age of six, the first guitar strings strummed at 12 and the first stage dive in the Rock Garden at 14, Jenny Lindfors has always had the musical bug.

Debut album 'When The Night Time Comes' was a collection of tracks tenderly capturing the rollercoaster weekend experience and the romantics tumbles that often ensue. With its warm and earthy tones, it has an organic, effortless charm. The sensuality (Voodoo) and hedonism (Night Time) of a young party-goer is beautifully balanced with a flip-side of vulnerability (Fearful Things) and darkness (Let The Seas Calm).

"I've always been aware of the difference between whiny self-indulgence and touching melancholic music," explains Jenny. "I've never very good at being contrived. People know when something is a genuine expression from the heart or a crock of shit."

Incorporating multi-instrumentation with a lot of African percussion such as the djembe (drum), congas, ukulele and old organs, 'When the Night Time Comes' was recorded with her mate Ben Delaney over the last two years with the acclaimed 'Carry Us Away' ep as a pitstop.

'When the night time comes' was released on Jenny's own label Pentacle Records in Ireland in March 2007 to widespread critical acclaim. It was re-released in the UK & Ireland with Flock Records in Summer '08 to critical acclaim, leaving one journalist 'completely and utterly gobsmacked'.

Already with UK & Ireland supports to Adele, Angus & Julia Stone, My Brightest Diamond, Sugarush Beat Company, Ben Taylor and Rodrigo y Gabriela prior to her album release, one senses that Jenny Lindfors is assuredly on her way.

She is currently based in London and working on her second album in a big old warehouse on a dirty river.
