Special Guest Jensen McRae
Jensen McRae is a “wordgirl”. “Everything I do is about, and in service of, words and stories”, explains the 24-year-old LA Native. As a biracial, black and Jewish woman growing up in predominantly white spaces, McRae’s music explores all aspects of identity from race and gender to issues of depression and unrequited love. Inspired by the likes of Stevie Wonder, Carole King, Alicia Keys, and James Taylor, McRae started her musical journey writing in her bedroom, to then playing the local songwriting circuit in Los Angeles. The singer-songwriter has earned praise across the music industry. She released her debut EP in June 2021 and is supporting Amos Lee on his Spring 2022 tour.
