Fall 2015 News!

Happy Fall!  Thank you for stopping by my website to check out what's going on with me and my band, the Jumping Monkeys!  We just had a fantastic time performing at Boston's second annual Kids Really Rock music and arts festival with so many of my other favorite local and national performers for families.  And we have a lot of other exciting stuff to look forward to this fall, including our band show at Temple Emanuel in Newton on Monday, October 12 (Columbus Day), our annual fall show at the Coolidge Corner Theater, and much much more!

A BIG piece of news for me is that I have finally begun recording my fourth CD for families!  Longtime Jumping Monkeys member Adam Rothberg is producing it in his studio. We have begun laying down tracks, plus I'm madly writing new material to include on the album.  At some point later this fall, I will be launching an Indiegogo campaign and I hope to ask you all for your support and involvement in this project. I'm hoping it will span beyond the recording into video content and other publications.  I'll keep you posted!  If you have any questions, or even an idea for a song topic on the CD, please always feel free to email me at vanessatrienmusic@gmail.com.

I hope you enjoy exploring this website, and I look forward to seeing you at a live performance soon!

Musically yours,
