Singer-songwriter Jennifer Clarke will release the first single from the album Trinkets in Rubble on March 20.
Jennifer Clarke is part poet, part pirate of the Eastern seaboard and part drifter. A full-time commercial fishing Captain, she has also been writing songs for as many winters as she can remember. “I used to fish throughout the winters,” she says, “but I finally indulged my lifelong dream of making records, and now I split my time between the two.” She has just released her third album, Trinkets in Rubble, while preparing for a move to Los Angeles from her home on Martha’s Vineyard. Jennifer casts a wide net to arrive at a musicianship whose compositions and arrangements are steeped in fervent imagination, whose lyrics are searingly intimate and whose style is unequivocally unique and deeply resonant.
Trinkets in Rubble is lyrically adept and beautifully arranged. Produced by Steve Catizone (Wyclef Jean, Earth Wind & Fire, Sully Erna, Jojo), the record features an all-star line-up of musicians: Charles Haynes (Raphael Saadiq, Meshell Ndegeocello, Kanye West) on drums, Baron Browne (Jean Luc-Ponty, Billy Cobham, Andrea Bocelli) on bass, Duke Levine on guitars and Steve Catizone and Jennifer on keys.
