We love the first couple lines of Jeanna’s bio, “Jeanna Salzer mixes pop and soul in a way that should be illegal. She has recently discovered the merits of thrift-store synthesizers. No one can pronounce her name.”
It’s true, we had to ask how to officially pronounce her name, too. We’ll probably forgot tomorrow, too, and go back to the wrong way. But you know what, even if no one can properly pronounce her name, very few in Milwaukee don’t know Jeanna these days. She’s probably the most rock-solid pop singer in Milwaukee — one surrounded by great musicians that all together create a sound completely all their own.
So if you’ve only heard about Jeanna Salzer (and only misprounounced her name in your head), tune in at 8 p.m. tonight for WMSE’s Local/Live for one of Milwaukee’s finest artists going.
