Type of music generally:
Most recent release, Above the Clouds (2000)
Bevel Jenny has a unique sound. Their mix of Celtic, pop, rock, folk, blues and jazz sounds make comparisons difficult. Think Clannad meets Manhattan Transfer. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Some of Bevel Jenny's songs are traditional Celtic tunes (in English and Gaelic). Of the twelve songs on their first CD, six are original (and how!); six are traditional with new arrangements and considerable flair. (email@example.com)
Bevel Jenny is one of the growing breed of Celtic fusion bands that explore innovative mixes of Celtic music with rock, pop, jazz and blues. Some bands pull off this combination well enough, but Bevel Jenny is just incredible. Regardless of their innovative style, all their songs retain a vibrant Celtic underpinning. Their songs are sophisticated, melodic and give the impression of a band that's been performing together for a long time.
Recommended first album:
Above the Clouds is their debut

Every now and then you come across a CD that's so good you not only play their songs over and over again, but you have to tell everyone you know about them. Above the Clouds is one of those CDs. (email@example.com)
