Upcoming JPR Live Session: Emily Nenni | November 11 @ Noon

Dave Jackson
Emily Nenni and Sean Thompson at JPR

Emily Nenni — a California born, Nashville based singer/songwriter refers to herself as a "honky-tonk girl just getting started." Her sound is old-school country but her songwriting is forward-thinking.

Emerging Americana artist Emily Nenni wrote the songs from her new album On The Ranch while staying at a ranch in Colorado surrounded by female wranglers. Her song-writing is pure honky-tonk but with a modern woman's point of view. Her new song In The Mornin' is a feminists answer to the Faces classic Stay With Me — just as suggestive, but from the standpoint of a woman who calls her own shots.

Growing up in the Bay Area in California, she attended her first concert in utero — Bruce Springsteen, and attended numerous concerts with her family. Her father worked in radio while she was growing up and exposed her to a wide variety of music.

Joining her in this live session is guitarist Sean Thompson.

Hear her in a JPR Live Session on November 11 at noon on your FM dial or at ijpr.org and find JPR Live Sessions archived at Spotify, Stitcher and Apple Podcasts.

Dave Jackson curates the music on JPR's Rhythm and News Service, manages music staff and hosts Open Air, JPR's hand-picked house blend of music, JPR Live Sessions and Open Air Amplified. The exploration of music has been one of his lifelong passions.
