Every East Coast youngster knows of the young redheaded girl from Nova Scotia and the resulting tales after she moved to Avonlea. Although not quite as popular, PEI native and Halifax resident, Jenn Grant traveled in the opposite direction but still makes the same impact on those she meets.

 

It’s probably a little too obvious to compare the two redheads, but there’s something so charming and genuine about each that it’s easy to overlook the differences and almost impossible to ignore the similarities. While Anne was a firecracker, Jenn came across as one of nicest people you could meet - a mix of child like whimsy and creativity - but both mellowed and matured with age. For Jenn, Echoes was a darker, heartbreak filled / fueled record; one that can’t be written until you go through real, grown up pain. Even as both touch on sadness, people continue to gravitate to their words, so much so that even though neither were “technically” born in the province they achieved greatness, each location takes responsibility for their success. You know, that whole nature versus nurture debate.

 

As Grant gets ready to release her new LP in January, she’s decided to put out a stop gap EP - Songs for Siigoun. The four-song EP is built on the John Denver classic, “Annie’s Song“, a song she makes much sadder but no less beautiful. The EP is currently available on iTunes, but if you are lucky enough to see Grant on tour you can try to snatch up the 500 (complete with handmade cover art) copies… or you can send us your details [HEROHILL AT GMAIL DOT COM with Jenn Grant in the Subject] and we will pick two lucky winners on November 18th. Why November 18th? Well, she’s playing the Paragon and might be unveiling some of the new songs.
