Dancer, choreographer, performance artist, writer, songwriter, singer, uke strummer, style maven... "multi-talented" barely does Jenna justice. Her first CD, Jumping Bean, is a double-handful of Jenna's tunes -- funny, skewed, poignant and yes, quirky -- built simply around her voice and uke. A few choice friends, among them Miles & Karina (both!), Laurel Bliss and Coty Hogue, add the seasoning as needed. I'm both honored to have been asked to record Jumping Bean, and pleased as punch with the result! Visit Jenna's MySpace page to listen to samples.

In the Spring of 2007 my friend Jeff Lee asked Rebecca Cohen and me to back his songwriting students, a talented bunch of young women from Lake Washington Girls Middle School, at the concert premier of the songs they'd written in his class. The songs were so good and the concert went so well, that I suggested we turn it all into a record. "Your Window" is the result and Athena is the name Safiya King, Cassie Gill, Jamie Keene and Amanda Triandafilou chose to call themselves collectively.
