An embodiment of the hard working Chicago attitude, Jenny Gillespie has been as busy as any musician over the past few years. After producing her first two albums Light Year (2009) and Kindred (2010), Gillespie’s newest EP Belita sees the singer/songwriter return to the roots she honed at Chicago’s Old Town School of Music. Creating a minimalist sound, Gillespie’s world music roots are apparent with the various melodies she strums from her acoustic guitar. Layered on top of rich vocals, Gillespie’s folk rock sound draws from many genres and brings a fresh approach to folk rock.
She will be opening for Hotel Lights at The Beat Kitchen on April 28th.
