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

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
