It’s tempting at first to put Colorado artist Jenn Cleary squarely in the blues category.  It wouldn’t be completely wrong, she does have a powerful, smokey voice and the hot guitar chops and plenty of tunes that fit the genre.

But listening to her latest album Back to the Wheel, one quickly discovers that Jenn is first a true songwriter, with a penchant for blues, the ability to slide between rock, folk and more with ease, and the commitment to serve the songs in whatever style is best suited to the story at their heart, because heart they have indeed.  As a mother and an activist for poor children around the world, her inspiration sources seem to be limitless, and the tales that come through her music are truly touching.

No doubt she knows how to have a great time though!  Check out this video of Jenn performing her song Last Day of Vacation Blues with her band:
