Jasmine Netsena

Take You With Me may be the debut album from singer/songwriter Jasmine Netsena, but the resident of Fort Nelson, BC, is far from a musical novice. Rather than rushing into a first record, she chose to steadily sharpen her vocal, compositional and performance skills. In recent years, she has charmed audiences in Nashville, Texas, New York City, and across Canada, before finally deciding to commit her songs to disc. That did take a little push, Jasmine laughingly concedes. "All my musical mentors here in the North finally told me, 'yes, you're ready. Take the plunge and go for it.'"

We can be glad she did. All Netsena's patience and hard work have paid off with a truly compelling album, one that signals the arrival of a major young talent. This is a record written and recorded in the Great White North, but it's stylistic heart resides in the American South. Netsena grew up surrounded by the sounds of country, folk and blues, and she seamlessly incorporates these styles into her own music. The stories in these evocative songs, though, are deeply personal and strongly rooted in her homeland.

Music was a big part of Netsena's life growing up in B.C.."My First Nation heritage is Dene and Tahltan, and my grandmas would sing to me a lot, in their first language," she recalls. "Those were mostly drum-based songs. My mum is a huge music fan, and I grew up to a lot of country and folk music, from George Jones to Neil Young and Bob Dylan."

With Take You With Me set for release on April 22, Jasmine's performance schedule is heating up. On May 14, Jasmine and fellow songstress Ann Vriend will share a joint album launch at Vancouver's roots music mecca, The Railway Club. Jasmine will then play shows in Alberta, while Ontario dates are expected in the fall.

2014 is shaping up as a banner year for Jasmine Netsena, thanks to this vibrant and richly rewarding album. It is indeed one you will want to take with you.
