Show Notes

“I don’t want my music to sit in a folder collecting dust.”

Interviewer Antonia Zappia writes: “I visited Jenna on a bright morning in mid November and she greeted me graciously with baked goods and tea. We recognised, throughout our discussion, that art is a lifelong pursuit and mindfully working through the highs and lows often returns a better results. Also, compositions need to be played as folders get dusty and dust causes allergies – achoo (bless you)! Jenna’s website (http://jennacave.com/) is super fancy and she founded a 17 piece band!”
