Neighborhood Jams: Jennie Vee

Hello, KCR readers, and happy Wednesday! This has been a great semester of my first ever neighborhood jams, and I want to thank you all for joining me on this adventure. For one of my last posts this year I am featuring a great singer, songwriter, guitarist, bassist, woman extraordinaire – Jennie Vee! She recently performed at two venues in San Diego this last weekend – M Theory Records and Soda Bar. At both venues the crowd really fell in love with her warm vocals and harmonious guitar riffs, and here’s why…

New Yorker, Vee, has been an avid member of the music industry for some time now. Vee has performed with Courtney Love’s band as the bassist, and also with Lana Del Rey. She toured the UK; interviewed with some well-known magazines; and reached 345% of her goal for “Pledge Music Campaign” for an upcoming 2016 UK tour. This lady has been on fire this year, and two months ago she released her first full-length album Spying on October 15th, 2015. This album has some great tracks, and my personal favorites are: Spying, Dreamtime, and Rock n Roll. Each of these songs sound so sweet and as worded on her Facebook, “Melancholic Dream Pop” which is a perfect description. You can’t help but close your eyes and sway to her melodies. As she sings her dreamy lyrics and strums the guitar you get a real sense that she put a lot of heart and passion into each tune.

Jennie Vee sounds like a combination of Best Coast and The Cure with a dash of groovy psychedelic riffs. Along with her brand new album Vee also has a great EP – Die Alone from September 2014. You are able to get her new album on iTunes and also at her Band Camp here. I suggest purchasing her entire discography for the low price of $15.75 – you truly cannot put a price on happy, fun music. Be sure to give her a like on Facebook as well.
