Blanket is alive from the onset, then begins to build into a class, or category of its own.

Allen's sound is based in traditional country/roots. She's smart and has the cynicism that comes from one too many bad decisions or relationships. It gives her songs an edge and makes her interesting. Her experience has been hard won and her songs are expressed honestly without flinching. - “Jenny Allen - Blanket” - BC Musician Magazine

Jenny Allen has all the firepower she needs to make some very real impact. She has a great voice and a sturdy sense of herself. She has surrounded herself with a crackerjack group of players. - “Jenny Allen’s ‘Blanket’ - a connection is made” by Eric Thom
