Jenny Van West has a new album out. Happiness To Burn is floating on the ocean of music's torrent and spreading the joy that Van West has found. The youth in her voice and the wisdom of experience are combined in this effort she has set forth in Happiness To Burn. She is touring with an ensemble that can support her on her wave as she delivers this heartfelt message.

She's got so much wrapped up in her performance and songwriting. You might hear a little New Orleans influence and perhaps even Leon Redbone, but Jenny Van West is all on her own.

Don't take my word for it. She's playing April 27 at Mayo St Arts. And you can find her music and albums at her website.
