From the first note, Midwestern native Jeni Grouws cuts through the air with a power and passion that is thrilling. Her voice is like ‘a choir of angels on a runaway train!’ And while Grouws’ voice grabs you immediately, it’s her ability to make you her friend and share her stories that keeps audiences coming back for more.
Jeni Grouws is making a name for herself with the Avey/Grouws Band, 2017 Iowa Blues Challenge winners and 2018 International Blues Challenge Semifinalists. But she won’t be tied to one category. Grouws weaves blues, Americana and country into a sound that is all her own. And while she can set a large festival stage on fire, in an intimate, acoustic setting, Grouws is magic.
