Red River, Jenna & the Jentlemen, Big Picture 

When: Sun., Jan. 30, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: Free

With Jenna and the Jintlemin, there are a few things that need to be addressed. The band's full, rich, slightly oddball take on classic country is one. The fact that the band's backing instrumentalists mostly hail from Raleigh indie power Annuals is another. But the most important item to mention is the instantly charming voice of Jenna Smith.

Wrapped in arrestingly melodic—and considering the source of its players, surprisingly unassuming and uncluttered—tunes, Smith's lines resound with Southern warmth. It's a voice that brings a breezy elegance to every song, one that makes even her fluffier numbers hard to ignore.

After returning from Appalachian State University last summer, Smith began playing solo acoustic shows. Annuals, friends of hers from high school, offered her an opening slot in October. They pitched in as her backing band and have been doing so since.

"After I moved back to Raleigh, I noticed how big the music scene had gotten, which is really, really cool," she says. "But also, sometimes it can be kind of stiff. I just wanted to have fun, and we're definitely having fun." —Jordan Lawrence
