PRE-ORDER HERE ALONG WITH SPECIAL GIFT BUNDLES CURATED WITH LOCAL NOVA SCOTIA ARTISANS
ALBUM RELEASE SHOW LIVE AT THE MARQUEE IN HALIFAX ON DECEMBER 6 AND PARTNERED WITH VENUES ACROSS CANADA
Toronto, ON – October 2, 2020 – With the seasons turning, Jenn Grant has her sights set on the holidays. Today, she announces her forthcoming holiday record, Forever On Christmas Eve, set to drop on November 27. Recorded during last year’s holiday season, the album is filled with Patsy Cline-style swagger and sees Jenn covering all of the classics, in addition to her own new original, Downtown on Christmas.
“The holidays are nostalgic,” Jenn reflects. “We watch the same old movies, we hang the white and blue lights, and check in with each other on how it’s been. We miss our families, we fall in love, we find hope again in human kind. I’ve had over a decade of Christmases now with my partner Daniel Ledwell, and we made this album together last holiday season. We hope it gives you something to get into that special spirit, and we hope that our kids will always love this time of year as much as we do. May this be a keepsake for them and for you, as we all get older and watch the snow fall.”
To celebrate the release, Jenn will be giving a special live performance in her Halifax hometown at The Marquee on December 6. While performing live in person at The Marquee, the show will be livestreamed for all fans to enjoy as well. Jenn has also partnered with venues across Canada and will be doing a profit share of the show, in an act of solidarity with venues that she would normally be touring around this album’s release. Stay tuned for ticket and partnership info to come soon.
Additionally, Jenn is partnering with local Nova Scotia businesses and artisans to create Forever On Christmas Eve gift bundles, including Circle & Wick candles and beard oil from East Coast Beard Bros., along with the album on vinyl and CD.

In June of 2019, Jenn released her latest full-length album, Love, Inevitable. The record was a marker for a period of change in Jenn’s life; of moving through one moment and leaving it behind, almost carefree, for another. After making four consecutive albums with her husband, Daniel Ledwell (and being nominated for three JUNO Awards), Jenn stepped out of her usual comfort zone and reached out to Grammy nominated American producer and engineer, Tucker Martine. A synergetic and collaborative team was born, spending the bulk of the summer months recording in Portland, Oregon. Jenn earned earned four 2020 East Coast Music Award nominations for the album: Folk Recording of the Year, Solo Recording of the Year, Fans’ Choice Entertainer of the Year, and Fans’ Choice Video of the Year for Keep A Light On. In February of 2020, she followed up with Reimagine EP, which acted as a companion piece to Love, Inevitable. The EP was recorded around Nashville and at Echo Lake Recordings in Nova Scotia, and featured three new original tracks, a cover of Don Henley’s Boys Of Summer, and an acoustic version of Love, Inevitable single, Raven.
