When Halifax-based chanteuse Jenn Grant released her critically acclaimed debut in 2007, much of Canada’s music establishment thought they discovered another Feist.
But while Orchestra for The Moon featured plenty of Leslie-like moments, her follow-up is definitely Grant all the way. Echoes is filled with quiet folk, soft, soothing vocals and even a memorable Neil Young cover (Only Love Can Break Your Heart).
Although her tunes aren’t as well executed as Feist’s, she’s definitely got something that could, one day, put her in the same league.
