On today's podcast we have Nashville Rising Star : Jenny Tolman! Irreverent, quirky and wildly entertaining, country newcomer Jenny Tolman is poised to take over Music City. With a razor-sharp wit and throwback sound, Tolman is on deck to become her generation’s Roger Miller—a comedic troubadour with a decidedly feminine perspective, offering savvy wordplay and wisdom far beyond her years. Her debut album There Goes the Neighborhood lit up Nashville in 2020. The 13-song collection—with titles like “High Class White Trash” and “Till My Tank Is Empty” delivers engaging snapshots of small-town life in the fictional Jennyville. An equally gifted singer and songwriter, Tolman and her cohorts serve up devilishly astute lyrics, whether they’re poking fun at nosey housewives who love to dish and drool in the title track or offering acceptance of “friends that love the pope and friends that love their dope” in the wickedly tongue-in-cheek “My Welcome Mat.” The latter made such an impression on Academy Award–winning actor Jeff Bridges that he cut the song himself, performing it at his kitchen table during Willie Nelson’s livestream variety show, Come and Toke It. Not many new artists would step into the spotlight quite so brazenly but doing so has been worth the gamble thus far for Tolman, with the Nashville Scene singling out There Goes the Neighborhood as “Best Country Debut Album,” while The Tennessean named her an “Artist to Watch” and MusicRow Magazine included her in its “Next Big Thing” Class of 2020.
Hi listeners and welcome to another edition of Weekdays with Murph. Today on the show, we welcome back our good friend Jenny Tolman. We'll catch up with Jenny about what she's been up to since the last time she was on, including something very exciting that happened recently. This should be fun
Welcome to Jennyville, population...well, we're not exactly sure. But you're bound to have a damn good time when you enter the amazing technicolor world Nashville singer-songwriter Jenny Tolman created for her stunning debut album There Goes The Neighborhood. Jennyville is Mayberry meets Desperate Housewives -- teeming with colorful and hilarious residents likely to get into brawls at the Tupperware party or flirt with the butcher at the Piggly Wiggly. But it's also filled with some of the most heart-wrenching and honest country songwriting you'll hear this year.Support the show (http://www.patreon.com/skiphappens)
We had a great conversation with Jenny Tolman today on The Chris & Sandy Show. We talked about so many things from family, music, sacrifices, Jennyville, and she told some great stories especially the story behind the song "So Pretty" which we played. We was very vulnerable about that story among other things so click the play button to listen to the podcast!
On Episode 105, I'm joined by singer-songwriter Jenny Tolman. Tolman released her debut full-length album, the excellent and charming There Goes The Neighborhood just about a year ago. During this interview, we discuss the creation of Jennyville--the fictional picturesque town that's the focal point of Neighborhood--how and why she drifted towards this concept, growing up in Nashville, the Nashville songwriting machine and industry as a whole, and how she's stayed focused, grounded, and sane during the 2020 pandemic.

Jenny Tolman and Toad talk music, the past 6 months and touring
Jenny Tolman and Toad hangin’ at Stoney’s for her first time ever in Vegas, along with telling bad jokes, and even taught her about Stoney’s 1 and only rule… all this while the world isn’t quit sure what’s next. Learn more about: Jenny Tolman WEB: www.jennytolman.com Facebook: @JennyTolmanMusic Instagram: @jennytolman The line between gossip and psychotherapy is sometimes mighty thin. There Goes the Neighborhood, the debut album by Jenny Tolman, casts the clever newcomer – hailed by Sound Opinions as a “storyteller par excellence” – as a member of a high-class, white trash welcoming committee, an observant woman who sees other people on her own fictitious block through a humorous, surface-scraping veneer. Tolman conveys her songs with “the sass of Nikki Lane mixed with the clever wordplay of Brandy Clark,” according to Rolling Stone, making a scintillating statement about the complexities of modern femininity by exploring her own womanhood through a make-believe town. Music provides the ideal vehicle for Tolman to examine a sometimes-painful world with a blast of sardonic humor as she continues to distance herself from very difficult teen years and fully embrace her bold, brazen adult viewpoint. The post Jenny Tolman and Toad talk music, the past 6 months and touring appeared first on TOAD'S TUNES.

Ep. 114 - LARRY WEISS ("Rhinestone Cowboy") + Jenny Tolman
Songcraft: Spotlight on Songwriters
CMA and ACM Song of the Year winner Larry Weiss chats about his amazing career from the Brill Building to "Rhinestone Cowboy" and more. Plus, up-and-comer Jenny Tolman stops by to preview her cool new record. EPISODE DETAILS: PART ONE Scott and Paul discuss the recently-aired Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony and chat about some of the artists who've not been inducted yet, but should be! PART TWO - 14:22 mark Nashville-based newcomer Jenny Tolman stops by to discuss her approach to writing her new album There Goes the Neighborhood and to perform the title track live. PART THREE - 28:49 mark Scott and Paul catch Larry Weiss on his cell phone in the grocery store to chat about his first charting single (a co-write with Neil Diamond and eight other guys!); how he beat out King & Goffin, Sedaka & Greenfield and Mann & Weill for a Nat "King" Cole cut; why a well-timed delivery of matzo ball soup led to the recording of one of his classics; the upsetting incident that prompted him to move out of New York City; why he wasn't happy with his vocal performance on the original version of "Rhinestone Cowboy," and the reason he never thought of his biggest hit as a country song in the first place. ABOUT LARRY WEISS Glen Campbell’s recording of Larry Weiss’s “Rhinestone Cowboy” became an international hit and reached the #1 spot on both the country and pop charts in the US. It earned two Grammy nominations and was named Song of the Year by both the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music. While Weiss is most often associated with that classic hit, he’s written over a dozen singles that have hit the Top 40, including “Bend Me, Shape Me,” which was a Top 5 pop hit for The American Breed. Other artists who’ve scored hits from the Weiss songbook include Pat Boone, Baby Washington, The Animals, Al Martino, Jerry Butler, and The Carpenters. Larry has released two albums as an artist, Black & Blue Suite in 1974 and Cuts and Scratches in 2010. He also sang “Brand New Life,” the theme song for the TV sitcom Who’s the Boss? The list of additional artists who’ve covered his songs includes Nat “King” Cole, Marvin Gaye, Barry Manilow, Charley Pride, Loretta Lynn, Three Dog Night, Dionne Warwick, The Shirelles, Clyde McPhatter, Paul Anka, Gene Pitney, Rod Stewart, David Gilmour, Tom Jones, Robert Plant, Chrissie Hynde, Ben E. King, T-Rex, Paul Revere & The Raiders, Neil Diamond, Wilson Pickett, Dolly Parton, Thome Yorke of Radiohead, Belle and Sebastian, and Michael Jackson, who recorded “To Make My Father Proud,” which appeared on the 1984 album Farewell My Summer Love.
