Jenell & the Yets
The road to success is never paved, but rather a series of uncharted footpaths to the top. Jenell & the Yets have made small triumphs in spreading their unique brand of Alternative Rock throughout South Jersey (which is as unpaved as it gets), and with the release of their debut Localized Phenomenon, are set to bring their talents to newer audiences. The band began with Jenell, the stellar lead vocalist and songwriter, playing to crowds mesmerized by her powerful voice and captivating lyricism. Quickly building speed, the solo act became a band by supplementing the act with the talents of bassist, Jamie McCarthy, drummer, Nathan Terry, and guitarist, Jimmy Bailey and together they are taking over the music scene.
Jenell & the Yets have drawn comparisons to folk rock acts such as KT Tunstall and Jagged Little Pill era Alanis Morissette, but their musical abilities allow them to craft and develop a myriad of structures that are accessible to a large range of music lovers. There album speaks to this in a manner that sounds seasoned, but was birthed from an organic process that shines through every track. “Distraction” illustrates how pulsing and tightly knit their composition is, and “Worth It” elicits romantic imagery with captivating harmonies. While localized fame is their foundation, Jenell & the Yets can’t be contained, and are moving beyond the borders of Jersey and compelling their growing following to go with them. With airplay from West Chester University’s WCUR 91.7 FM, Delaware’s WSTW, YRock on XPN and the potential inclusion of the single “Zoee and Gizmo” in a film soundtrack by Misplaced Planet Production, based in Los Angeles, CA, its only a matter of time until this band gets recognized as a phenomena unto itself; a musical occurrence not to be missed.
