Jenai Huff began singing as a child. Her favorite piece of furniture was the stereo cabinet that her father built. Music moved her from the inside out and it still does. Although she stopped singing for almost 2 decades, there were periods where she managed bands because she felt that music could impact the world in a positive way.
Now with her first CD, "Transitions", released, she wants to do just that. And certainly the world could use some positive impressions these days. Her pure and soulful voice touches people and stirs their souls. Her style is a little bit folk, a little bit country, with a touch of bluegrass. "Transitions" was produced by two-time Grammy Winner, Ben Wisch. His two Grammy Awards were for 'Album of the Year' with Marc Cohn, for the album of the same name, and for Mexican superstar, Ricardo Arjona. He, also, plays piano and keyboards on the album.
Jeff Pevar, internationally known multi-instrumentalist plays multiple instruments on the album – acoustic, electric, bass, resonator and classical guitars, banjo and mandolin. Jeff has performed and/or recorded with James Taylor, Ray Charles, Marc Cohn, Jennifer Warnes, Rickie Lee Jones, Crosby Stills & Nash, to name only a few.
Background vocals were sung by Eugene Ruffolo, Shawn Thies and Doug Ingoldsby. Sammy Merendino, Tom Lackner and Chris Marshak played drums and percussion. All of the musicians who accompany Jenai Huff on the album are triple A players, as well as her friends. Each of the songs can be listened to separately and certainly have a stand alone quality. However, when listened to as an album there is a feeling created. Almost as though you had just read a good book.
