Jenny Dragon is an eight piece band that celebrates a throwback take on modern music. Jenny Dragon songs defy category, reviving and redefining music that combines jazz,
blues, country, folk, doo wop, and rock influences, often shifting genres to best serve
the story of a song. 

 

Raucous odes to summer, Vegas-cabaret interpretations of nuclear bomb testing in America, lyrically haunting dusty houses, serial killers - nothing and everything is sacred to Jenny.

 

Having recorded and released their debut album “A Fair Souvenir" to a packed audience at Martyrs’ in Chicago, Jenny Dragon continues to write and introduce original material to their live sets at some of Chicago’s best music venues.

 

 

Reviews for “A Fair Souvenir":

 

“Trading in the summery for the sultry is Jenny Dragon. The... Americana band features two lead female vocalists and a serious love for 1930s-50s radio on A Fair Souvenir. The all-analog (!) recording sounds pristine in its sound quality, but that’s just the front door. Once you get into the songwriting, there’s a ton to enjoy. The band sticks with traditional songwriting styles and motifs, creating tunes that will appeal to fans of The Ditty Bops... If you’re into vintage-style songwriting led by classic female vocals, A Fair Souvenir by Jenny Dragon should be in your corner.”

“Hailing from Chicago, Jenny Dragon brings a unique sound to the table... Basically, if you took a supercollider and filled it with doo-wop, country western, tango, blues, and '20s jazz, you'd have yourself A Fair Souvenir... I can't help getting sucked in to Jenny Dragon's tunes.”
