It’s been a busy 18 months for NYC based/Canadian born musician & songwriter Jennie Vee. Since her debut solo show in Brooklyn, NY in May 2014 she was personally invited to open for Manic Street Preachers on their Holy Bible tour in both NYC and Boston, played bass in Courtney Love’s band for her summer tour with Lana Del Rey, and has been touring North America and Europe playing bass for Tamaryn.
Her own brand of deliciously melancholic dream-pop has been turning heads via a succession of EPs and singles which have already picked up glowing reviews from besotted bloggers and tipsters, with high-profile admirers such as Courtney Love, Dave Navarro, Snow Patrol, Alan McGee and The Libertines queuing up to proclaim its excellence.
Jennie’s forthcoming debut full-length album “Spying”, featuring production from Paul Wilson (Snow Patrol) and mixing from Chris Lord-Alge (Bruce Springsteen, Green Day), will be released on October 15th, 2015.
The trick behind the addictiveness of tracks like “Spying” and “Wicked” is an inch-perfect blend between a blurred, out-of-focus guitar sound and absolutely razor-sharp hooks. “If it was just the melody and the hooks,” she believes, “it would be cartoony. But if it was just that guitar sound, a wash of noise, it would be nothing. You need that balance.”

Supporting tour dates have been announced in the UK in October (including a slot at the Rockaway Beach Festival – featuring Johnny Marr and Echo & The Bunnymen as headliners) as well as a North American west coast tour in December with VOWWS (Cleopatra Records).
