New CD From Jack Grassel and Jill Jensen

Award-winning, multi-instrumentalist Jack Grassel and vocalist Jill Jensen, partners in music and marriage since 1998, announce the November 2018 release of a new CD, SNOW PEOPLE.

The collection of 12 Winter-themed songs from the cold American Midwest, are a mixture of jazz, pop, rock, blues, rap, swing, original, Christmas and a dash of avant-garde. Jack plays all the instruments. “It was a fun project for two people in love. We recorded it over the past year in our home studio when we were inspired and in good form so did not have the pressures of studio time limitations.” adds Jack.

Popular demand was catalyst for the CD. Jack and Jill host annual Holiday Home Concerts during the first weekend in December, and pleased attendees urged them to record the shows. In response to the request Jack and Jill created this new wonderful CD.

SNOW PEOPLE will be available for holiday gift purchase at all performances and at:
