Here at The Current, we’ve been inviting local musicians to take over our all-Minnesota music stream to talk about the local music scene and to spin tracks from other local artists. The roster for Local Current’s DJ in Residence has included local mainstays such as Martin Devaney, Sophia Eris, Al Church, Reina Del Cid, and Gabriel Douglas…and it’s now time to announce the latest addition!

In October, we’re handing the mic over to Jennie Lawless, best known as the frontwoman of alt-pop band Warehouse Eyes. Jennie is a Twin Cities transplant from the Chicago metro area and a self-described “music school misfit.” She’s dipped her toes in the waters of many genres of music—from playing jazz and DIY folk to earning a degree in classical voice—and has now decided to live in the world of dreamy alt-pop.

Jennie’s musical tastes run the gamut, and she is excited to share some of the music that has influenced her as a songwriter and performer. Jennie is psyched to deepen her musical knowledge of past and present Minnesota and share her reflections with Local Current listeners.

Spend your Friday afternoons this month joining Jennie Lawless in delving into the music made, played, and enjoyed in Minnesota. Her first shift airs today, from noon until 6 p.m. on Local Current!
