75 - 75

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome, welcome, to 75 Bands in 75 Days, where we bring you the best talent that the Pacific Northwest has to offer, one day and one band at a time. It’s no secret that Seattle is the home for a lot of great musicians, and today we’re exploring the forays of one of the best singer-songwriters in the Emerald City, one Jen Wood.

Hailing from Seattle, Jen Wood is a long-time singer-songwriter and rock musician with a pretty varied back-catalog. She first got her start in 1992 with the alternative rock band Tattle Tale, which released two full-length albums before dissipating in 1996. Since then, Wood has been releasing solo records and EPs under her own name. These solo projects ran at a more mid-tempo pace than records like Sew True, and explored Jen Wood‘s prowess as an indie singer-songwriter. On top of that, she’s had several vocal contributions to music from bands like The Black Heart Procession and most famously The Postal Service on their song “Nothing Better”.

Jen Wood has released a total of five studio albums under her own name, most recently the excellent LP Wilderness from this year, which showed Wood varying her music with more piano and a grander chamber pop influence. 2010’s Finds You in Love is another album well worth checking out if you’re into this style of solo indie rock. 22 years into her career, and Jen Wood is showing no clear signs of stopping anytime soon. We cannot wait to see what Jen Wood releases into the future, as things can only get better from here.
