"Singer/songwriter and guitarist Jarrett Fenlon possesses an easy-breezy sonic signature and youthful vocal style that belie his favor for such experienced tastemakers as Bonnie Raitt, Eric Clapton and Van Morrison......"Sprung" boasts sprinklings of jazz, blues, folk and country...and makes a nice souvenir for fans of the act's live enterprise. Truly, it plays out like a front-row ticket." ~Billboard Discoveries, www.billboard.com
The start of Jarrett Fenlon's musical career can be traced back to his early years when he used to sing along to the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Van Morrison and Eric Clapton while riding in the car. These artists and many others can be identified as influences in the songs that he writes to this very day.
Trained in saxophone, clarinet, piano and drums prior to picking up a guitar in his teenage years Jarrett possessed a solid musical foundation to begin his songwriting career. His lyrics speak of everything from lost love to bad whiskey and appeal to people from all walks of life. Anyone who gives this artist half a listen soon find themselves singing along in no time.
Over the past couple of years Jarrett has performed live along with his band at several historical venues throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. With the support of several SF Bay area musical veterans/legends Jarrett has the necessary backing to croon out his soulful ballads and foot stomping blues tunes without missing a preverbial beat. He has also performed as a solo artist up and down the West Coast at dozens of small and medium-sized venues.
His sophomore album "Sprung" intertwines elements of country, jazz and pop while at the same time paying proper homage to his blues roots. It was produced/arranged by Steve Kirk who's credits include the composition/production/arrangement of the soundtracks of several well-known video games including Facebook's "Farmville" and Disney's "The Princess & The Frog."
Jarrett graduated from UC Berkeley in with a Bachelor's in Political Science. While attending Cal he walked-on to the Varsity Football team.
