Jenny Reynolds Best New Local Act – Austin Chronicle 2005 Critics Poll Featured on ABC, CBS and NBC television NEW CD “Next To You” Co-produced by Scrappy Jud Newcomb Features Ruthie Foster, Warren Hood and Ian McLagan To be released in February 2008 “Now I have three pairs of flip-flops, and my snow boots are dusty.” Jenny Reynolds also has a new CD. To be released in February 2008, Next To You, was co-produced by Scrappy Jud Newcomb, Mark Addison and Reynolds, and features Ian McLagan, Ruthie Foster, and Warren Hood. Reynolds’ music is an amalgam of Kathleen Edwards, Beth Orton and Lucinda Williams. Next To You combines rockers and ballads, stories and rants, and precisely one hoot. Now based in Austin permanently, Reynolds tours nationally and returns to her native New England several times a year. "My car just knew there was something different when we crossed the Mississippi." Two years of touring Texas was all it took to get singer-songwriter Jenny Reynolds to move to Austin, a decision which came to fruition on the cross-country drive in a '97 Honda Civic that was crammed with everything that would fit. She arrived to a friendly welcome from Austin's music scene, making the transition smooth and successful. This 2003 Kerrville New Folk Finalist immigrated to Austin, TX in late summer of 2003, and was featured on KUT's Austin Music Minute the following November. "That was a pinnacle part of the drive, partly because at the moment of crossing it, I suddenly realized moving to Texas was the right thing to do." In relocating, Reynolds leaves behind her a distinguished past in New England. Nominated for a 1999 Boston Music Award for her debut CD Colored in Poetry, Reynolds has shared the stage with Ruthie Foster, Sara Hickman, Terri Hendrix, Warren Hood, John Gorka and John Prine. She is an artist and Associate Producer of Signature Sounds' Respond compilation, which to date has sold well over the $100,000 mark. Reynolds is also an Associate Producer of Respond II, which features Dolly Parton, Patty Griffin, Sarah McLachlan and Ani diFranco. Reynolds’ sophomore CD, Bet on the Wind, received praise from Paste Magazine, The Boston Globe, and The Boston Herald, and is played on radio stations around the world. This life-long native of Boston grew up listening to James Taylor and the Beatles. Hailed as "...a gifted guitarist..." by the Boston Herald, Reynolds started playing when she was 8; listening to Joni Mitchell and Bonnie Raitt helped Jenny to learn guitars weren't just for boys. “Patti Smith helped with that too.”
