Hey there!

I wanted to write a post about the upcoming UMS of which The Juniper Trees will be a participant! We are very excited to be a part of this festival, that showcases some of the beautiful talent of the local music in Colorado. It is really wonderful that The Denver Post, and the city itself, does this, and offers an opportunity for us all to gather and listen to music together of people living among us in our awesome state!

We will be playing at the Skylark on Sunday, at the start of Sunday’s festival, at 3pm.

I will also be going to see Brian’s other band, Radical Knitting Circle, who play on Sunday at the Skylark at 9pm. And we will be playing with Kramer Kelling, awesome upright bassist extraordinaire!

We will have some new songs, and some old songs to play for you guys. Bring your dancing and crooning shoes y’all.

XO,

Jenna

I just wanted to post about our 2 upcoming shows, and the Songbird Challenge. I just gave all 8 tracks to my friend Mark Raynes for mixing. I had planned to do 3 extra tracks, but 3 weeks of sickness, 2 of which were larygitis (from which I am still recovering) overrode those plans! Things somehow work out with some semblence of order, so I am just waiting to see what happens…

I am still excited to continue the Songbird Challenge. My goal is to write 100 songs! But I don’t want to get started until my voice is back, and since we have some shows coming up, I need to rest it.

Next week on Thursday, Feb.2, we are at The Walnut Room with Blow the Vault. Then, Feb. 11th we are at The Laughing Goat with Story and Clark. This is the show where I am claiming I will have a CD. I think it will happen, but the way the Universe has been, I am offering up life and just saying “whatever you decide” !

Hope to see you soon,

Jenna

The Songbird 8 week challenge is officially completed…in 9 weeks. The last one took me a little extra contemplation. So now it is time for voting! I want to know what your favorite four are of the bunch, and then I will record them with the band. Drums, upright bass, and banjo will be added! If you missed the tunes because you aren’t on the mailing list, just email us at thejunipertrees@yahoo.com with “Songbird Challenge” in the title, and I will send you all eight tracks. 

A Songbird Challenge CD with all eight tracks and three mystery tracks will be available at The Juniper Trees show on Feb 11th at The Laughing Goat in Boulder, CO. 

Also, we will have a live video webcast of our show at a private party on December 30th. It will be free to watch, so stay tuned for more information about that.

Last, but not least, I have made a decision about whether or not to continue the Songbird Challenge. My decision is yes. I have never felt more inspired musically than making music specifically to send to people. My recording skills are moving along at a snails pace and I am really enjoying the whole process. I will start up again after the holidays, and this will go on…indefinitely, until I feel like I need another break! So sign up at thejunipertrees@yahoo.com to receive weekly songs in your inbox.

My inspiration from the Songbird Challenge is why I included the picture of the Aurora Borealis. Such a beautiful natural phenomenon. What is your inspiration? Where does your creativity meet your inspiration? What do you want to share with the world? Feel free to add it in the comments below, or email us. I invite you to a challenge, to share weekly/monthly what you are inspired to create. And feel free to add us to your list.

Thanks as always for listening,

Jenna

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.
