Opening Performance by Mary-Elaine Jenkins



Mary-Elaine Jenkins’ music sounds like a premonition. Like sweat and perfume. Bourbon and salt water. Her debut record, “Hold Still”, was released in September 2018. Her voice has been characterized as “a mix of cloves, sage, ash, thorns, and honey” (The Deli NYC), and she has been described as “standing righteously above other young pretenders” (Glide Magazine).
