Charismatic, yet somehow equally coy, Jenny Banai wields a magnetic power of likeability both on and off the stage. With a guitar in her hands, there’s a clear and present energy that overtakes her. Raised among the green pastures of BC’s Fraser Valley, she is an artist who lives and works in East Vancouver. The contrast is aptly reflected in her work. Banai sets precise, homespun lyrics against vibrant, textured musical backdrops, pouring her observations and emotions into songs that give voice to the things many of us lack words to say. Armed with a little guitar and a gorgeous, powerful voice, Banai boasts an inimitable live show, earning fans and well-deserved accolades along the way.
