Jenn Grant: The Party

By Kerry Doole

Jenn Grant - The Party (Independent): Love, Inevitable, the most recent album from the East Coast singer/songwriter, continues to earn accolades, and is nominated for Contemporary Album of the Year at the 2020 Canadian Folk Music Awards, one of three noms for Grant.


Rather than rest on her laurels, Grant has just released a brand new song, The Party, and it's a winner. Born out of a writing trip in Nashville this fall, the track was co-written with acclaimed Nashville-based singer/songwriter artist, Mary Bragg, who adds sweet harmony vocals.

In a press release, Grant explains that “The Party is a story about a woman, filled with anticipation in those moments while getting ready for the party, which sometimes feels like the best part. It’s about the evening to come, of dancing and love and loneliness and gathering. And something that resonates with this time of year, under all the sparkling lights.”

The tune is certainly not a party anthem, but rather a sparse and quietly reflective piece given emotional heft by Grant's signature vocal purity. 

Over the course of seven albums, Grant has explored different styles, including electro-pop. That may have helped her earn Juno noms and become a CBC darling, but let's hope she keeps recording in the vein of The Party for a while.

Grant has announced three February shows: Rebecca Cohn Auditorium, Halifax (Feb. 14), Petit Campus, Montreal (Feb. 27), and National Arts Centre, Ottawa (Feb. 28).
