Kazoo! #97: Jenny Omnichord / JJ Ipsen – May 13th @ eBar

 In Pre 2018 Shows

Kazoo! #97After Kazoo! fest 2010, our regular Kazoo! series returns with an exciting show featuring the Vinyl / Board Game release of Jenny Omnichord’s “All Our Little Bones” and JJ Ipsen.

Jenny Omnichord is a solo side-project of Jenny Mitchell, vocalist, song-writer and multi-instrumentalist for Guelph, Ontario’s noted young indie band The Barmitzvah Brothers. Her new album, the first release on her new label “Label Fantastic”, will be released on vinyl as well as CD, and the vinyl cover will double as a Cross-Canada board game! This show is her Guelph release party for the album & board game entitled “All Our Little Bones”. Jenny also recorded this album alongside a full backing band, who will be joining her for the Guelph release of “All Our Little Bones”.

J.J. Ipsen is a pretty simple guy. He uses what’s around him to create achingly catchy folk-torch pop diamonds-in-the-rough. “J.J. Ipsen’s Laundry” contains eight of these diamonds, inspired by books, film, love, friends and Labatt 50. Written in greenhouses, music shops, bedrooms and car seats, they’re your favourite shirt, your beaten-up jeans and your reliable sweater. Drawing on influences like Rufus Wainwright, Wilco and Brian Wilson, Ipsen writes songs that reflect a high degree of musicality and lyrics that are both thoughtful and insightful. With a strong background in English literature and music, J.J. and friends are currently hashing out new material for a full length recording and tour later this year. A fresh, comfortable and honest new voice in Toronto’s bustling music scene, “J.J. Ipsen’s Laundry” isn’t the second coming, it’s just a small collection of clever songs from the heart.
