Jenny Owen Youngs' releases Echo Mountain EP
Jenny Owen Youngs is excited to share her new Echo Mountain EP, out Today, March 10th. With its release fans can hear the new single “Dungeons and Dragons” for the first time. The song says Youngs, “is about using a role playing game as an early escapism tool. It's also about the fear of turning into the worst parts of the people who raise you.” Youngs will play the new EP in full as part of an Echo Mountain live stream event on March 25th at 8:00 pm EST. Tickets are available now via NOONCHOURS.

“Jenny elevates 'Dungeons and Dragons' past a nostalgic tribute to childhood fantasy, turning the track into a heartbreaking reflection on generational scars and delivering the most moving track of the EP.” - Under The Radar
The Echo Mountain EP is a tidy collection of new singles detailing the messiness of life. Songs steeped in a hesitant nostalgia for the alternatingly carefree and unsettlingly uncertain times of our childhood and teens. As well as ruminations on the lasting impact certain decisions can have, and how we learn to live with and grow from them.
Echo Mountain follows last year’s release of Youngs’ Night Shift (Extended Edition) EP which features songs produced by Ethan Gruska (Phoebe Bridgers’ Punisher, Fiona Apple’s Fetch The Bolt Cutters) and Jake Sinclair (Taylor Swift, Weezer, Panic! At The Disco). The incredibly prolific musician has also recently been splitting her time between writing for herself and composing 17 original songs with co-host Kristin Russo for “Once More With Once More, With Feeling” the just released all musical episode of their popular Buffy The Vampire Slayer podcast Buffering The Vampire.
The singer, songwriter, and natural history enthusiast grew up in the forests of northern New Jersey and is now based in Maine. Jenny Owen Youngs has released three albums and a handful of EPs, both independently and via Nettwerk Records, and her songs have been heard on Bojack Horseman, Weeds, Grey's Anatomy, Suburgatory, and more. Her work has been praised by The New York Times, Stereogum, Vice, NPR Music, The Washington Post and more.
