HEY FRIEND! Thanks so much for listening to Buffering The Vampire Slayer!

As you know, I’m Jenny. What you might not know is that in addition to being one half of the hosting team on Buffering, I’m also a full-time singer/songwriter. I’ve released three albums (Batten the Hatches, Transmitter Failure, and An Unwavering Band of Light) and a handful of EPs (the most recent of which is the Slack Tide EP), both on my own as an independent artist and also through Nettwerk Records. I also have an ongoing serial song project called EXHIBIT, for which I write songs that are directly inspired by a specific museum exhibition. I’ve toured all over the US and Europe, headlining my own shows and opening for rad folks like Regina Spektor, Against Me!, Frank Turner, Motion City Soundtrack, and Aimee Mann.

I’m JUST DELIGHTED that you’ve made your way to my corner of the internet. I made this playlist of some of my favorite “me” songs, just for all y’all Buffering listeners. Hope you enjoy it – thanks for stopping by!

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 below.
