"With her newest EP, Blue Night Yellow Day, as her witness, folkstress Jenna Ellefson has proven she can turn even the hardest souls into pure putty. The Portlander’s chalky voice, coupled with delicate and minimalistic folkscapes, makes for quite the serenade. While stark, the sound echoes Ellefson’s Western upbringing, gently bubbling with a woodsy sense of enchantment and wonder."
- Willamette Week (Jan 04, 2014)
Jenna grew up in lush Oregon, beside waterfalls, amid tall trees and foxgloves. For a time she went to live beneath Colorado's breathtaking peaks and among dear friends in generous Montana's giving, varied, and beautiful country.
She laughed and dreamed under stars and on rivers and across snowy mountains. Then one flowery spring, on a whim, she bought a little banjo...and suddenly all the poems she had been scribbling, and all the melodies she had been humming, and all the beautiful places she had seen spilled out over it's little plucky strings and finally...she had songs to sing.
"I try to create a gentle folk sound that is both nostalgic and original, and full of things I love. Flowers. Mountains. Honey and sugarcane, birdsong and dew...and I am very fond of a sweet little melody...preferably a waltz."
