Newly christened “Jennis”, are set to release the new album May 30th!
When long-time Toronto indie-scene bassist Jen Gillmor picked up the cello and joined forces with the newest creative incarnation of consummate blues musician Dennis Gaumond, Jennis was born. The duo tickles ears with an uncommon sonic blend of vocals, electric, acoustic and resophonic guitars, custom-tuned harmonicas, cello, didgeridoo, flutes, jawharp and percussion. Songs celebrate the mysteries and poignancies of life, rooted in a faith in peace and love as the highest power.
These are tracks from the as yet unreleased new album,“The Current”, by Dennis Gaumond and Jen Gillmor, collectively known
as Jennis. Look out for the whole 12-song release as of late spring 2014! Pre-orders will be available via Bandcamp in coming weeks.
The Toronto launch will be at The Monarch Tavern on Friday, May 30th. We are working on booking a Guelph release in early June. Sign up
