Jenie Thai

Born in Chiang Mai, Thailand and raised outside of Edmonton, Canada, Jenie Thai is building a musical presence throughout the country through the electric energy she displays on stage and the old soul that’s conveyed through her songwriting. Vocally, she has been compared to Eva Cassidy, but soaks in the musical influences of Tom Waits, Bonnie Raitt, Memphis Slim, and Nina Simone. A performer, song-writer, singer, and instrumentalist: Jenie Thai combines her love of the traditional piano blues, sixties R+B, and great American songwriters to produce a unique charm as a roots and blues musician on the national and international scene.

You can support Jenie by donating to her virtual tip jar the day of the live stream:
