A pianist and self-taught mandolin player, Jennie Backstrom takes the same approach to music as she does to life and love: express yourself radically, and take risks. With a storied musical background and a voice often compared to Joni Mitchell, Backstrom’s claim to fame is her ability to quiet a rowdy bar room when she steps up to the mic and expels a voice which–grounded in an operatic background–climbs to the ceiling and down without flaw or effort.

The Worcester-based singer/songwriter is releasing her debut album, “Emotions Sit”, supplementing her arsenal of songs like the soulful and sultry “To My Next Lover” and crowd-favorite “Rain.”

“Every one of us should be able to share our deepest ideas, thoughts and emotions with the world,” Backstrom says. “Music is my vehicle.”
