jinnjinni is an American indie folk duo comprised of singer/songwriter Josh Martin (guitar) and Liz Gaylor (5-string violin). They met at a party in fall 2016 when Liz joined Josh for an impromptu hearthside performance. Sensing magic, Josh asked Liz to join him in his newly forming band (Mirror Fields, psychedelia pop 5-piece). The two soon saw a congruence in musical tastes and quickly fell into a musical writing relationship that took on a life of its own. An initial few songs written in the spring of 2017 demanded their own project and jinnjinni (named for the muse who possesses you, compels you to create) was born. The writing continued through the summer and fall, and the 8 tracks that comprise jinnjinni’s debut album were self recorded in their studio apartment over the winter (release April 4th, 2018).
