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.

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.
