Jenny Omnichord is the solo project of 23 year-old Jenny Mitchell, vocalist, song-writer and multi-instrumentalist for Guelph, Ontario’s noted young indie band The Barmitzvah Brothers. In fact, it was the purchase of an omnichord in Jenny’s father’s thrift store 8 years ago that set her along this path, its carnivalesque, slightly Hebraic sounds leading two young gentile girls to pick the somewhat ironic Barmitzvah Brothers as the name for their band.
And while Jenny subsequently branched off into other instruments, among them bass and electric guitars, trumpet, banjo, and keyboards, it is the omnichord that has always remained her first love, a slightly geeky invention played by almost no one, capable of a myriad of sounds and effects, and for some reason scorned or unknown or ignored for almost all of its life. Well, now, it is time for the omnichord to take its rightful position among the upper echelons of musical instruments, and Jenny shall be the liberator who shall set it free, the vessel through whom this most intricate of the keys shall finally achieve the appreciation and respect that it so richly deserves.
