Out now via Pheromone Recordings, Montreal based songwriter Jenny Berkel has been giving audiences a sneak peak of her new album, Pale Moon Kid. Recorded with gifted producer Daniel Romano, the album is steeped in sparkling guitars, sparse piano, pulsing bass, and percussion, revealing writing that has grown even sharper and more lyrical. Berkel recently crossed the country on a national tour and now brings her new album to Vancouver for the first time on July 19 at China Cloud. Full tour dates are listed below with more to be added in the near future.
Recorded with Romano at the peak of summer in Welland, ON, they were joined in studio by Berkel’s sister, Kay Berkel, who was an important part of making Pale Moon Kid. “The three of us spent eight days in the studio, building the songs layer by layer, coming up for breaths of fresh air and slices of Welland’s famed Rex’ pizza,” says Berkel. “I couldn’t be happier with the work we did together.”
Since releasing her debut album, Here on a Wire, Berkel has been intoxicating listeners with her evocative songs and voice. Both on her own and as part of Daniel Romano’s Trilliums band, her consistent touring has garnered fans across the country and ocean.
