Greeted in her home country of Canada with five star reviews, 2011's Castlemusic firmly established Jennifer Castle as one of the country's most talented singer/songwriters. Her intuitive take on musical tradition coupled with a deeply affecting and instantly recognizable voice soon found its way beyond Canada when Castlemusic was re-released eight months later to further acclaim on American label No Quarter Records.
With promotion for Castlemusic slowing down in 2013, Jennifer returned to the studio to work on Pink City. A collection of intimate reflections on both the internal and external world, Pink City displays a sharpened musical focus showcasing Jennifer's powers as a writer and performer amidst a new sense of sonic clarity. The reunited production team of Castle, Dave Clarke and Jeff McMurrich invited a host of musical friends to embellish their vision. Owen Pallett provides string arrangements for a number of songs including the cinematic opener "Truth is the Freshest Fruit" and stirring ballad "I'm Like A Gun."
Other notable guests include American folk legend Kath Bloom providing inspirational harmonica on side A closer "Down River". Throughout the album downtown Toronto's finest musical stalwarts, such as Ryan Driver (piano,flute), Mike Smith (bass, arrangements), Paul Mortimer (guitar), Jonathan Adjemian (piano and keys) and Brodie West (saxophone), provide stunning support.
