The Juniper Trees is the new musical project of Jenna Herbst and former members of Sarina Simoom, a Denver based band. The Juniper Trees birthed from the decision to be re-inspired and re-invigorated by music and also to heal from the trauma of having a band name that no one, nor their mother, could pronounce or spell correctly. And dammit, spelling is important.

The Juniper Trees combine the twangy soul of rock with the modern folk sensibility. With banjo, classical and steel string guitar, harmonizing vocals, an occasional fiddle thrown in, upright bass, and eclectic drum styles, The Juniper Trees are a mix of rich melody, and non-traditional song structure and meter.

Jenna’s solo recordings are a soulful rendition of the songs; sparse, rhythmic and melodic, she is sometimes soaring, and sometimes driving. Check out her solo recordings on the Music page.

Jenna’s solo album, entitled “From My Living Room,” being recorded, guess where? You got it: In her living room, is due out in September.

The Juniper Trees are currently working on their first album as a band, and are still offering for sale all three albums by Sarina Simoom.
