The album, which features anthemic reverb-fueled indie-pop, is produced by Jeen and mixed by renowned Toronto musician/producer Ian Blurton. GiftShopwill be released this fall via Red Brick Songs.

An established and successful songwriter with a penchant for crafting hooky, sync-worthy songs, Jeen became the vocalist and co-writer for Cookie Duster, the side project from Brendan Canning (Broken Social Scene). In 2014, Jeen released her debut solo LP Touristwhich immediately got picked up by NPR’s beloved and influential show “All Songs Considered” who featured lead single “Everywhere I Go” and highlighted Jeen in it’s “9 Creative Musicians You Should Know” radio episode in 2015. The attention landed her a feature showcase slot at TIFF’s 2015 Canadian Music Café extensively broadening her reach in a sync market she had already well established herself in. Jeen’s 2016 sophomore LP ModernLifecontinued to build on her debut success with Consequence of Sound calling it, “…catchy, anthemic indie pop”. Both albums resulted in significant sync success for Jeen with song placements in various commercials (Google, Panasonic, Estée Lauder, Kraft, BlackBerry, KIA, Rogers, MasterCard, Molson) as well as notable movies and televisions shows (Cook Off, Republic of Doyle, Instant Star, Ruby Gloom, Degrassi, Killjoys, Hockey Wives, Workin’ Moms, MTV Catfish, MTV Are You the One).

If her songwriting resume isn’t impressive enough, Jeen has also written for many recording artists including Great Big Sea, Serena Ryder, Res, Hawksley Workman, Brendan Canning, FUWA FUWA (j-pop) and Martin “Doc” McKinney. With GiftShop, Jeen has honed her unique, vintage sound creating her finest work to date.
