Jeneen grew up in Buffalo, New York, and was strongly influenced by her Sicilian grandfather who sang every Sunday after dinner. She sang in rock bands in high school, and got invloved in local theatre. After leaving Buffalo, Jeneen studied classical music and opera, and began experimenting with other styles of music. With her BA in hand,
she decided to move to New York, where she became involved with the local music scene and started writing. In 2002 she released her first CD Just Me. The album is a mix of gentle melodies and sarcastic wit, with songs that are both purge and console. Her award winning album My Creation was released in 2007 with the title song setting the theme for the next few years. It was voted Desert Island Disc “Album of the Year,” and the title track was voted as the number one song for the New Year.
After taking a break from the studio for three years, Jeneen has a fresh collection of songs with a new sense of maturity and wisdom. Acoustic guitars, mandolin, trumpets and piano back her earthy, soulful vocals. Producer Mike West successfully captured Jeneen’s spirit and voice on the album. From the fun pop tune “Benny’s in My Head” to the haunting “God, I Need Comfort”, the songs are a mix of love, loss, courage, and heartache.
