Jenny Gear and the Whiskey Kittens Promote Debut

Published: 2004-11-17
Newfoundland singer Jenny Gear and her band the Whiskey Kittens are gearing up to do a series of shows on the East Coast to promote their new album. The quartet has a total of four appearances to support their self-titled debut this December. Three of the upcoming gigs will take place in New Brunswick, while the first will happen in Nova Scotia.

Perhaps best known to most Canadians from her time spent on Canadian Idol, Gear has been performing with the Whiskey Kittens long before the TV show came along. Jenny Gear and the Whiskey Kitten's eponymous debut, which was released earlier this fall on September 19th, contains 11 new tracks. All of the songs were written by eleven different contemporary Newfoundland songwriters, which were then recorded by Gear and the Whiskey Kittens at none other than Nanny Gear's house.

The track-listing of Jenny Gear and the Whiskey Kittens' debut is:

'Pale Slice of Moon'
'Brave Percy'
'Murder in the Southlands'
'Win Win'
'Mirror in Mom's Room'
'All You Gotta Do'
'The Silver Dove'
