Jenny O. Plays Mercury Lounge Tomorrow NightJuly 1st, 2013
She hails from Long Island, but singer-songwriter Jenny O. began making a name for herself in her adopted hometown, Los Angeles (“I feel a lot freer in California to make what I want to make”), sometimes playing solo acoustic shows and also performing with a full backing band. Her first EP, Home, filled with charming, personal tunes, began to introduce her to a wider audience—as did last year’s tour with Father John Misty. Now she’s crisscrossing the country in support of her debut album, Automechanic (stream it below), released earlier this year and produced by the talented Jonathan Wilson (a House List favorite). Fortunately for us, her current tour brings Jenny O. (above, playing “Well OK Honey” for Jam in the Van) to Mercury Lounge tomorrow night. Go check her out.
