Dancing from a Distance was produced by Aaron Marsh (of Copeland) at The Vanguard Room in Lakeland, FL and is a beautiful compilation of Jenny Dee’s most precious stories. From arpeggiated finger-picking to gravelly strumming, her dynamic guitar skills are the perfect backdrop for her vocals. “This album has developed into something I couldn’t have imagined when first beginning the process,” explains Jenny. “I am so excited to finally share the songs that are closest to me.” Opening the album is “Something More,” a song that showcases the internal struggle of wanting a change, a theme that is shown throughout the record. Previously released singles, “August,” “House That Built Me,” and “Leave a Light On” amplify the feelings of longing while alluding to geographical references such as oceans, rivers, and the coast. A talented storyteller, Jenny Dee’s lyrics feel effortless and genuine. The album closes with “If I Could Carry Us” a haunting and emotional duet featuring Aaron Marsh. The record is a nostalgic listen that takes audiences back to the moments of love and loss that are synonymous with the human condition.
