Singer, songwriter, and natural history enthusiast Jenny Owen Youngs grew up in the forests of northern New Jersey, spent significant stints in Brooklyn and Los Angeles, and is now based in Maine. Her songs have been heard on Bojack Horseman, Grey’s Anatomy, Weeds, Suburgatory, and more.
She spends much of her time in various states of collaboration, writing with and for other artists including Pitbull, Briston Maroney, Ingrid Michaelson, Shungudzo, Donnal Missal, and more. Jenny also co-wrote the Panic! at the Disco 5x platinum single “High Hopes.” She is a founding member of the surf-pop quartet L.A. Exes, whose debut album Get Some was released in the summer of 2021.
Her latest release, It’s Dangerous to Go Alone, is a collection of four songs inspired by some of Youngs’ favorite gaming pursuits from childhood to present day (Pac-Man, Super Mario Bros, Skyrim, and Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild).
Jenny recently picked up a Vanguard V13 gen2 Tube Condenser, and sent us this message:
“I’ve been using the V13 nonstop since I got it, and it sounds incredible. I love it on vocals and acoustic guitars; in particular, it captures the richness of my nylon string beautifully. It’s smooth, it’s warm, and it’s got vibe for days.”
