North Devon singer-songwriter Jenna Witts is a free spirit with an effortless natural talent. She is an accomplished keyboards player and acoustic guitarist who comes to life on stage with her infectious laugh and humor (with a west-country twang )– then silences everyone with her startlingly mature voice, sass, attitude and elegance. She delivers wonderfully melodic songs inspired by the sea, love and life.
At 25, Jenna has a wealth of recording and touring experience behind her including 5 nation-wide tours with Steve Knightley (Show of Hands) as well as performing at ‘Show Of Hands’ sell out concert at The Royal Albert Hall. Jenna has also toured with Mercury prize nominee Seth Lakeman and supported Port Issac’s Fisherman’s Friends. She’s also played alongside other musicians including Elkie Brooks, Hazel O’Connor, Newton Faulkner, The Noisettes, Nerina Pallot, etc.
Jenna’s first album ‘Barefoot and Eager’ attracted a string of accolades and national airplay and was named one of the Financial Times Top 10 world albums of 2007. Her second album ‘Brother’ has also received great critical acclaim and airplay on Radio 2. It showcases her talent as one of the most up and coming young singer songwriters in the UK.
Jenna released her brand new solo album ‘HITCHHIKER’in summer 2013. This album is the first on her record label ‘Jenna Records’ and it showcases 10 new self-penned tracks – it has recently reached number 1 in the Radio Caroline Countdown of Albums chart.
