Jenna & Martin

 

Jenna Rae and Martin Farrell Jr. met in Winfield, Kansas at Walnut Valley Bluegrass Music Festival. Both were playing banjo in separate bands at the time and bonded through their love of classic country music. They started learning Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris duets and quickly realized their voices nested well together. They began on an undeniable journey of writing, recording, producing and performing music together. Jenna likes to write songs that are “three chords and the truth” while Martin loves to add unexpected chords, key changes, and complex arrangements. Jenna will often take a simple song she has written to Martin and he will add in a new bridge or chord that takes the song to a new level. Martin says Jenna has helped him appreciate the simplicity in songwriting and recognize it as a valuable tool to reach the listener. Most of Jenna’s songs are true stories and emotions about her or people she knows. Martin likes to create fictional stories and characters as well as retell historical stories in a new way. Together they come up with lyrics that can make you laugh and cry in the same breath. While the duo loves writing together, they also keep their separate songwriting identities and record solo records. All of the music they have released has been recorded in their home studio and produced by Martin. They also own Lost Cowgirl Records and are helping Americana songwriters record and release their music.
