Hi everyone, just wanted to update you on the Songbird Challenge. This will be week #5, we are almost over the hump of the eight week challenge! I have had lovely feedback and even got written up in the Westword Blog. It’s been an amazing journey so far, and I have learned a lot about my process of writing songs, and how much I enjoy sharing them. Recording is getting a bit easier too.

On February 11, 2012, The Juniper Trees will play at The Laughing Goat Coffee House in Boulder, with Story and Clark. I will have the completed Songbird Challenge 2011 CD, and on it will be the eight tracks, plus 3 mystery tracks. I will also do some tweaking and changing on the existing tracks as well. I have not decided on a price as it will depend on how much it costs me to put it together. But don’t worry, it will be affordable and if holiday funds are low donations will be accepted!

Also, The Juniper Trees have a great desire to play a house concert. All we need…is a house! Please let us know if you would like some romping music in your living room some time in January or beyond. We would take care of organizing, and you would get to enjoy a lovely evening of music and entertainment for free. If you are interested in hosting, or know someone who might be, email us at thejunipertrees@yahoo.com, or leave us a comment here. Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving!

Speaking of Thanksgiving, The Juniper Trees, minus Brian, will be having thanksgiving together this year. I am pretty excited about this. I hope your Turkey day is awesome!

Hi, this is Jenna here. I just wanted to announce my personal song challenge for the holidays. I will be writing and recording one song per week, and doing “Songbird Tuesdays.” Every Tuesday I will send out a new song. So if you are interested in getting a new song each week in your inbox, please email at thejunipertrees@yahoo.com and we will put you on the mailing list. I am challenging myself to do this for eight weeks to start, after which I will request that everyone put the songs in order, from the most to least favorite. The top four will be recorded with the band on our next album.

Also, on the topics of new albums, The Juniper Trees are starting to record this month! We hope to have something completed by January.

Well, it appears that the zombie crawl pales in comparison to the real – life zombies of old in Ireland. This doesn’t surprise me. I knew that place was cool.

Come downtown tomorrow to the zombie crawl and see The Juniper Trees turned zombie, singing about….zombies. We will be outside on the 16th Street Mall, zombified and zombielicious.

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.

We had such a great time last night opening for the Burlesque show and participating in such a fun fundraiser for Planned Parenthood!

Just so you know, one of the features of the Burlesque show has a birthday coming up, and there will be another full-on Burlesque show in her honor, coming soon:

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.
