Jenny Owen Youngs
Somewhere between singer-songwriter and perfect-for-TV-scores status, Jenny Owen Youngs brings youthful charm to every song she sings, no matter the thematic depth involved. With infectious melodies narrated by her sweetly earnest vocals and happy mid-tempo percussion, Youngs’ music is catchy and completely inoffensivethe kind of thing you’d absentmindedly whistle. Think a folkier Regina Spektor with Zooey Deschanel bangs, Jeff Tweedy’s guitar, and the girl next door’s unassuming air.
