Jenn Grinels launches acoustic series Sept. 21 at North Coast Rep in Solana Beach

Former San Diegan Jenn Grinels will kick off North Coast Repertory Theatre’s new Acoustic Series on the intimate main stage at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 21.

Nashville-based musician Grinels is a dynamic songwriter, powerhouse vocalist and all-round entertainer. The bluesy, soulful, jazz influenced artist has toured all over the world.

Before dedicating herself to writing, recording and performing her original music, Grinels spent six years performing on theater stages around Southern California. North Coast Rep audiences may remember her from productions of “Back to Bacharach” and “Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris.”

Grinels has released three critically acclaimed full-length albums, built a loyal fan base all over the world and won numerous awards for her electrifying live performances. The Nashville based artist recently toured with Marc Broussard and 10,000 Maniacs, as well as headlining sold-out performances on both coasts (last summer headlining at the Belly Up Tavern). Her single, “Right From The Start” (brokenHEARTbreaker), can be heard on radio stations nationwide, and music from her full-length albums has been featured on several major television networks and in films all over the world.
