BIOGRAPHY 

Jenny Holmgren is a swedish singer-songwriter based in Stockholm.  Jenny's debut album 'It's Like You Carry Wings' features her original music and was released in January 2014 (physical release June 2014). It is a modern country/folk album with pop and rock influences and in blending these different styles of music she has in many ways succeeded in creating her own unique sound.  The elaborate guitar and voice arrangements by established guitarist Tassos Spiliotopoulos along with Jenny's colourful strong sound and witty lyrics makes this musical duo one to look out for.  

Growing up in the far north of Sweden Jenny had a close connection to the nature and was inspired by its beauty, the majestic forests and open seas.  She knew early on that she wanted to pursue art. As a teenager her love for music led her to study in Stockholm and later on musical theatre at the Royal Academy of Ballet in Gothenburg as well as at the Royal Academy of Music in London.  She has also taken part in several musical theatre productions such as 'The King and I' in Malmo and 'City of Angels' in London's West End. 

As a naturally powerful and versatile singer with a distinctive sound and wide range Jenny made some interesting collaborations with musicians from the UK scene.  It was in London where she met guitarist Tassos Spiliotopoulos and together they performed Jenny's original music in many London venues.  Tassos has also produced her new album which was recorded in London and Stockholm.  

Jenny is also a licensed singing teacher and music teacher with an LRAM diploma from the Royal Academy of Music and a teaching Masters Degree from Middlesex University in London.
