Ghost Town Jenny

"sweet and spooky" -- INTERVIEW MAGAZINE

"California based trio, Ghost Town Jenny make songs that could be described as sorrow-tinged musical fairytales, surreal acoustic dreams or – more musically accurate – a fusion of gently plucked guitar, cinematic strings and the beautifully unique, hauntingly ethereal voice of one Kim Kylland. This is a singer whose voice has that indefinable quality that bands are built on." -- THE OWL MAG

"Approximations of June Carter Cash-esque country, and a tangled-strings experimentalism that occasionally comes off like a minimalist answer to Andrew Bird.” -- THE AUSTIN DECIDER

"Love enchanting songstresses like Florence and the Machine and Bjork? We think you just might fall for Oakland's emerging indie-folk trio Ghost Town Jenny. " -- PURE VOLUME

"It’s an impressive feat when a release from a new, young group can impact a listener on its first play-through. Ghost Town Jenny’s latest EP does just that. The sound on Golden Hour is carried greatly by Kim Kylland’s remarkable vocal capabilities, which are instantly hypnotizing. Supported by string arrangements that are both delicate and forceful, in addition to graceful piano work, synths, and percussion, each piece falls perfectly into place." -- LUCY OUT LOUD

"Hailing from sunny California, Ghost Town Jenny is a magnificent trio that effortlessly blend lead singer Kim Kylland's haunting and powerful voice with remarkable string arrangements and brooding ambient soundscapes to create their own unique genre of spooky, cinematic soul music. The band's dark and hypnotic ballads have garnered them fans around the globe and have started to turn the heads of many in the music industry." --ICON VS ICON

“GTJ create a sonic mood that is reminiscent of afternoon light coming through lace curtains, teacups on the porch, and unmade beds." --THE SAN FRANCISCO GUARDIAN

"Possessing an effortless and ethereal howl and remarkable instrumental arrangements, each song is like it's own contained fairy tale." -- ICELAND AIRWAVES MUSIC FESTIVAL

"Kim Kylland has a wonderful voice, the kind that sounds just as good in person as it does on the band's recordings." -- THE REYKJAVIK GRAPEVINE

"Ghost Town Jenny's music hovers between the bright light side and the darker, more mysterious...she is an exciting artist we hope to hear more of.” --DARK SEASON FESTIVAL

"Otherworldly Kim Kylland is called Ghost Town Jenny - maybe because of the high-lonesome in her voice and the little Sandy Bull/Richard Bishop flourishes she'll do on her acoustic guitar-- a few seconds for ringing open strings that whip and wiggle like barbed wire caught by the wind...She doesn’t frog her voice like Iris De Ment but surely she can make someone weep just the same." -- OC WEEKLY

"Describing Ghost Town Jenny is a challenge...their sound is so unique that one struggles to come up with the appropriate words. If you take one part Twin Peaks, one part Black Tape for a Blue Girl, and two parts of that dream you can't quite recall but can't really shake... that's getting close." --THE LATE SHOW

"Ghostly and ethereal, it’s almost impossible to tag the band’s music to a particular genre; but there are certainly parallels to be drawn between the atmospheres and emotions dealt with in 'The Swan' EP and Florence and the Machine’s Ceremonials." -- LUNAR MUSIC

"Features just the kind of fairytale imagery and spooky yet gorgeous sounds one might hope... Their sound includes danceable tunes that recall Björk and Florence & the Machine, while their simpler strummed ballads make one want to don a whimsical gown and run through the forest on a starry night" -- NO DEPRESSION

“GTJ inhabit a musical world that is haunting, ever changing and unique; with a vocal style that fluctuates between Björk-esque peaks and the sadness of country crooners from decades past, while still maintaining a distinct quality all her own.” --LET GO MAGAZINE
