Jenny Don’t And The Spurs are Portland’s hottest new roots-country four piece. Featuring Jenny Don’t, Kelly Halliburton (P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S., Pierced Arrows), Christopher March and Sam Henry (Wipers), Jenny Don’t and the Spurs bring a variety of musical styles and a formidable wealth of experience to the stage. Drawing from a long background of playing in some of Portlands best and most well known independent bands.
While the sound of the Spurs is original and draws from deep wells of personal experience, the band pays stylistic homage to the greats of the genre – Patsy Cline, Ernest Tubb, Hank Williams Sr., Loretta Lynne, and all the rest of the real players from the 1940s and 50s – an era where the lines between Rock’n’Roll and Country were blurred, where the likes of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, and Carl Perkins could tour together and nobody would bat an eye.
Jenny Don’t and the Spurs have released a limited-edition 7″ vinyl 45 on Fred Cole’s label Tombstone Records and their debut album on Doomtown Sounds before. After nearly 300 live appearances around their native northwest, up and down the west coast, and on two successful European tours, the band returned to the studio to record their sophomore album, the aptly titled “Call of the Road”.
Jenny Don’t was nominated for “Outlaw Female” for Dale Watson’s Ameripolitan Awards based in Austin, Texas. The album “Call Of The Road” charted at #32 In the Americana Music Charts. The Spurs also just signed on with Leafy Green Booking for the US and with Fluff and Gravy Records for their next album.
