Jens Jeppesen – At Fables (Independent)

IMGARecorded before a rather appreciative crowd in Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick’s Jens Jeppesen exudes a quiet kind of humility on this 12-track record. Jeppesen’s simplistic songwriting style recalls folk heroes such as John Prine who, not coincidentally, Jeppesen covers on At Fables. Jeppesen’s simple approach to bringing these songs to life is what makes the record work so well. He doesn’t need to rely on pomp or gimmicks to make these songs shine; the songs take care of that for him.
