The eagerly awaited follow-up release to the acclaimed album Hopetown
released on Black Hen Music in 2004. Both of Jenny Whiteley's releases, Hopetown
(2004) and Jenny Whiteley
(2001) were Juno Award winners in the 'Roots/Traditional' Album of the Year category. Dear
picks up where Hopetown
left off, using many of the same musicians, including Amy Millan (Stars, Broken Social Scene), Dan Whiteley, Joey Wright (Sarah Harmer), Chris Whiteley, and many others from the Canadian roots music scene. Dear
masterfully blends folk/roots style and instrumentation with contemporary production elements and sounds to create an overall timeless and unique sounding album. Jenny's clear and classic voice takes centre stage in this beautiful repertoire of songs sure to be compared with the work of female singer/songwriters such as Lucinda Williams and Emmylou Harris.
