ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In her Blood Folk EP, Jenny Dalton amps up her enchanting piano-based indie-pop style with the powerful, driving forces of a band featuring an unlikely pairing of members from the Seawhores and ex-members of Cloud Cult. Also, in a successful experiment, she recorded a few tracks completely on her own which allowed her to fully develop the dreamy, cinematic mood of those songs.

Jenny Dalton moved into a 130 yr old house hidden away from her Minneapolis stomping grounds and became interested in folk art, folk medicine, folk lore, etc. She researched her family tree and discovered ancestors executed in the Salem Witch Trials and ties to the Mohawk tribe. A two-week venture into the Rocky Mountains of Colorado inspired more connections to the land and the past. These discoveries and experiences have woven their threads in the songs for the new Blood Folk EP (a 5-song, digital release).

Blood Folk was recorded at her home studio, at a Colorado cabin, and at Essential Sessions Studio in St Paul. Band members include Dan Greenwood on drums and Deborah Copperud on cello (Cloud Cult) along with Adam Marx and Cody Weigel (Seawhores) who contributed bass and guitar.

Dalton taught herself how to play piano and began composing original songs at 8 yrs old. She was influenced by post-punk era bands, and her music has been compared to Tori Amos, Kate Bush, Sia, Vienna Teng and others.
