You may want to leave a key under the door for Santa this year, because with all the goodies he’s bringing, he just might not fit through the chimney. In his bag he’s got the latest from west-coast happy-folk darlin, Jenny O, her holiday gift, “Get Down for the Holidays,” releasing on Target’s The Christmas Gig. Do Santa’s back a favor and grab her other holiday single, “Prettiest Little Present,” for free, here.
Mixing influences from the 60’s and 70s along with her jazz-fueled hip hop and pop music, Jenny O’s new video, “Well OK, Honey” was shot with help from some friends in Humboldt County. View the video below and if you’re in the Greater Los Angeles area or looking for an excuse to get your Hollyweird on, Jenny O will be performing at the Bootleg Theater in February for four weeks.

LA based artist Jenny O. is digitally releasing her first EP on November 30th via Manimal Vinyl, home to fellow lady artists Bat For Lashes and Warpaint. Jenny also produced and engineered the album herself. The physical release of the album will be announced within the coming months.
Jenny O. was raised in New York and discovered her passion for music at a very young age. Playing instruments such as the piano and cello, Jenny began making her own recordings on her dad’s reel-to-reel by the time she was 13. Her musical influences range from the hippie like sounds of folk to jazz infused hip hop with a little 60s and 70s pop to add a twist. Her voice is soft and flowing but her lyrics are frank and the two mesh perfectly to create a perfect balance.
Although Jenny has performed in countless bands, Home is her first solo album. Check out the first single off the album, “Well, Ok Honey” and other tracks by Jenny O. here.
1. Well, OK Honey
2. All My Wishes
3. Won’t Let You Leave
