jeNell and the Yets Biography:
Jenell has been singing and songwriting since she saved up eighty bucks and bought herself a guitar at the age of twelve. Unfortunately, Jenell's crippling shyness robbed audiences of her talents for six long years, until 2005, when she made her debut at Thunderson Forge, during the monthly Third Friday Event in Millville, New Jersey. Since then, Jenell's become an attraction at open mics across South Jersey, performing selections from her songbook of over 40 original tunes. She later expanded her ongoing tour to include college events in West Chester, PA, where performances were broadcast live by WCUR 91.7FM.
When Jenell set out to record her debut album "Localized Phenomenon" at bliXYZ studios in Cinnaminson, NJ, bassist, Jamie McCarthy and drummer, Nathan Terry came aboard. For a time, they played together without any official title, but soon after fell into the title of "JeNell & the Yets". A name that was originally intended to be temporary became beloved and is stuck on good and tight now.
Jenell's fun, sincere songs touch audiences in remarkably personal ways. "Stay Awhile," is a personal favorite of Dale Pantalione, singer/songwriter of Liquid Eclipse, who says it takes him back to a place in his own life. Bryan Montemurro, record store owner, describes the band as the city's "hidden talent. He is not alone in his belief that Jenell & the Yets are "possibly one of the most talented bands in the area." Another song of theirs, "Zoee and Gizmo" is under consideration for use in a film soundtrack by Misplaced Planet Production, Los Angeles, CA.
