After recently sharing a stunning video for the song “Wealth In The Country” while on a western Canadian tour Jenny Berkel is now revealing a live performance video for Pale Moon Kid standout “St. Denis” courtesy of Exclaim!. The acclaimed songwriter is celebrating by announcing album release shows in Montreal on September 30 at La Vitrola and inToronto on October 2 at The Drake which will include a special solo performance by Jim Bryson. Currently, Berkel is in Europe for the first of two extensive tours.


Of the “St. Denis” video Berkel says, “after a lengthy outdoor location hunt in the GTA, a good friend of mine offered us his beautiful (and giant) deck in Toronto. It was one of the first hot and humid days of summer; it was also the first time we added Ben Harney  (bass) to the band,” she recalls. “We rehearsed the song while Alexei Golob filmed and eventually caught this take, just as daylight was disappearing. Special thanks to Ian Romano and Ryan Fields for their work on capturing the audio.”

Jenny Berkel’s writing is at once gentle and hard-hitting. Her lush and low voice ornaments her poetry with melodies that soar high and clear before spilling back down again. Out now on Pheromone Recordings, Pale Moon Kid was recorded with Daniel Romano at the peak of summer in Welland, ON, where they were joined in studio by Berkel’s sister, Kay Berkel, who was an important part of making the album. Steeped in sparkling guitars, sparse piano, pulsing bass, and percussion, this glowing new collection reveals writing that has grown even sharper and more lyrical.

Born in the heart of Ontario’s lush forests and fields, Berkel’s music has drawn her across the country, experiencing dramatic changes in landscape. This constant shifting finds its rest in her songs; her lyrics are dreamy and piercing, shimmering with memories, and glittering with the quiet solitude of a night sky. “The songs on this album come from different homes across Canada,” says Berkel. “The quiet of rural Ontario, the open prairies, the rush of Toronto, and a small apartment in Montreal's Parc Extension. My life and the stories surrounding me were constantly and quickly changing. This shifting landscape of geography and people finds its home on Pale Moon Kid.”
