Southport singer / songwriter Jenny Wren has released a 5 track EP across all media platforms.
The title track ‘Anam Cara (Soul Friend)’ was written when Jenny was living in Northern Ireland. She became fascinated with the tradition ‘Anam Cara’ which Jenny explains is, “An understanding of a spiritual friend that is not restricted to just this life alone. An eternal love that understands the depth of your soul and inevitably, the recognition of two souls coming together once again.”
The songs on the EP are a journey of self-discovery, finding ‘Soul Friends’ and the fragility of the human condition. Jenny describes the genre of her music as Americana with a Celtic feel. The EP was recorded in the newly renovated Arch Studios in Crossens in Southport.
The former church now houses The Arch, a 3,000 sq. foot recording studio where Jenny and ‘The Wrens’ recorded the EP in one day.
The EP was recorded, engineered and produced by Tom Percy of Rhythm Rooms in Formby. Tom and Jenny have previously worked together alongside Cassie Kotchie to write and produce The Rainbow Collective songs ‘Pass On The Rainbow’ for the NHS and ‘Play That Song To Me’ for Help Musicians which both raised thousands of pounds for the charities, topped the amazon and itunes charts and also featured on ITV’s Granada Reports.
A plethora of Southport talent was involved in making this EP including; Guitarist – Martin Fearn (son of the late Ronnie Fearn MP), Bassist – Graham Fletcher-Hill, Violinist – Karine
Woodward, Percussionist – Al McNay, Vocalist – Jo Howarth and also Cassie Kotchie who recorded vocals for the EP before returning home to Australia.
