Jenny Scheinman is a renowned violinist/fiddle player who grew up in Petrolia, California and moved to NYC pursuing her career as a musician. She has played with some incredible artists – Nora Jones, Madeline Peyroux, and Bill Frisell (just to name a few of many). She has eight albums – mostly instrumental, all pictures of her complex and lively inner world. Jenny recalls while playing with friend Madeline Peyroux she felt a pull to find that part of her own creative voice to step up to the mic and sing. Now Jenny has a new album, The Littlest Prisoner. In this record she writes, sings and pretty much knocks it out of the park with a heart-felt, reflective album about love, relationships, and childhood. Listening to the songs one can see the slideshow of stories revealed in every verse and chorus. Jenny candidly talks about her creative process, how she survived living in NYC busking, and the transition of being a mom and a musician. Jenny recently moved back to Humboldt County with her husband and two young children, and we are lucky to have them here.
