about

Multi-instrumentalist Jenn Sutkowski brings her signature love of harmony and lone-wolf DIY to this personal album full of layered, natural samples, like kicking autumn leaves and breaking branches used as percussion. It is held together by Jenn’s love of building moody song-scapes from the ground up, rich and unexpected harmonies, and organ, banjo, guitar, ukulele, and glockenspiel. Jenn recorded it herself on location in various places significant to her including her home studio. Natural Impressions is a collection Jenn has been recording/working on for several years, about growing up in the woods, doing better, looking to the cosmos, looking for peace.

On “Magic, Plants & Love,” Jenn wanted to capture the sound and feeling of walking through the grass with the birds chirping above on Nantucket, so she did exactly that and recorded the vocals in the bathroom of the cottage where she was staying in 'Sconset. A water-filled goblet warbles on "Starry-Eyed," crickets at Kathryn Albertson Park in Boise chirp on the autobiographical sketch “Old Woods.” Some songs are snippets, mood pieces, an attempt to capture something of the essence of time and space.

After losing her father to Alzheimer’s this year — he was always a champion of her music — she realized life is too short not to finally finish and share her first album. As Dr. Wayne Dyer said, “don’t die with your music still in you.” The cover of Natural Impressions is a treasured photo of Jenn’s mother, who passed in 1999. She dedicates this album to her parents and to the muse.
