Something’s Comin’: Jill Hennessy Live at Adelaide Hall Toronto

On a Friday night at the gorgeously renovated Adelaide Hall in Toronto, the equally stunning Jill Hennessy took to the stage to celebrate and launch her newest full length album, I Do.

Jill Hennessy Adelaide Hall Toronto Black and WhiteIt was an intimate performance, with roughly 100 people in the crowd, and all of them interested in every song and joke and story that Hennessy had to share with them. The set included a mix of tracks from her first album (Ghost In My Head, 2009) and the new album – plus a fantastic little French number and an awesome cover of Springsteen’s Thunder Road.

Joined on stage by her twin sister Jacqueline (vocals) and keys/accordion player Buck, the sound was exactly what I was hoping for. The stripped down instruments (including Hennessy on acoustic guitar) have the tracks a folk/country sound that I have always loved. And it very clearly works with the new material.

Jill Hennessy Adelaide Hall Toronto October 2015Live versions of I Do, Edmonton, Something’s Comin’, Aimee, and Digging My Own Grave all did the record justice, and showed us that Jill Hennessy is much more than just the actress that we’ve enjoyed on Law & Order, Crossing Jordan, The Good Wife, and Madam Secretary. She’s above all else, an entertainer.

Many thanks to Jill and her team for being awesome on Friday both on stage and in our quick meet and greet hello backstage. She was sweet and kind and quick to make a joke. There was no tension, only a smile and a happy look on her face. The same look she had throughout the show.

Jill Hennessy looks happy playing music. And that’s exactly what every musician should be aiming for!
