In 2009, Jenny Wilson self-produced, recorded and released acclaimed album ‘Hardships!’. Then in 2010, Jenny Wilson began a collaboration with the Tensta Gospel Choir, which resulted in a series of concerts and recordings, reworking material from the ‘Hardships!’ album.
However, shortly after the studio recordings, Wilson was diagnosed with breast cancer. The entire summer tour with Tensta Gospel Choir was canceled and Wilson began a chemotherapy treatment in the autumn. Parallel to that she worked with Daniel Fagge Fagerström (The Je Ne Sais Quoi, Skull Defekts) on the music for Helena Franzén’s dance performance “I’m Not Looking Back” at Dansens Hus in Stockholm. This was based on Wilson’s tracks on “Hardships!”
On April 6th, Wilson releases a double album featuring both of the above versions of “Hardships!” entitled “Blazing”. To celebrate this new release, this phenomenal artist will be going on a small tour with the Tensta Gospel Choir.
