I have some shows coming up! I don’t know if you guys heard, but I had THE TIME OF MY LIFE on tour with Streetlight Manifesto recently, so we decided to play a couple more shows together. Because we can. SO with that in mind, I’m very psyched to let you midwesterners know that I’ll be supporting them in DETROIT and CLEVELAND in September. I’m also real stoked to tell you that I’m going to be supporting my friend Dan Wilson at Troubadour in LOS ANGELES on Friday, October 13th. (Yes, I agreed to play a show on Friday the 13th. I live on the edge) and at Swedish American Hall in SAN FRANCISCO on Saturday, October 21st. Tickets for all these shows are on sale now – find the deets right over on my tour page.

Bless the fateful day that genius cartoonist & illustrator Isabella Rotman emailed me to ask if I might possibly have a burning desire to cover “Long Black Veil.” She was putting the finishing touches on a comic adapting the song, and thought it would be nice to have a sonic companion to the book. I was immediately on board, as this is one of my favorite songs from the vast and varied Johnny Cash catalog. Then I read her beautiful and charming adaptation, my delicate brain exploded, and I got to work on trying to create a version of the song that might conceivably live in the same world as Isabella’s interpretation.

You can buy Isabella Rotman’s beautiful comic adaptation of the song in her online store.

You can learn more about her fantastic work at isabellarotman.com.

The song is available at jennyowenyoungs.bandcamp.com, and you can see the song & the comic book in action together in the video that Isabella put together above.


I saw some of you asking for my setlist from this most recent run of shows with Streetlight Manifesto (which by the way WERE THE MOST FUN I’VE HAD IN 2017) so I put together a little Spotify playlist*. Thanks for asking! If you want to stay in touch on a DEEPER LEVEL, you can sign up for my mailing list and I’ll send you love letters.

*My song “Next Time Around” is not yet recorded, so it is not yet on this playlist. But stay tuned! One day I’ll release new music.
