Jenna Torres

How much do we love our first feature user Jenna Torres? So much we’d need 2 bins! A talented NYC native, Jenna is usually described as a cross between Sheryl Crow, Dolly Parton, and a female version of Bruce Springsteen. For a city girl, she get’s her country chops from the simple idea that a city packed with over 8 million people is the real heartland.

In her own words she says that, “everyday I am surrounded by 8 million hearts and 8 million stories. It’s an inspiring place to write songs.” Check out her latest music.


Where are you from? Why did you move to NYC? What’s your favorite thing about living in NYC?
I was born and raised in NYC! I would say my favorite thing about New York is the full spectrum of humanity and the freedom we all have to express ourselves.

How have you used urBin to reclaim your space in the East Village?
As a performer I tend to collect more feathers and fringe than I can possibly fit into my already overflowing closets… they were packed with stuff I wanted to keep but had no other place for. Urbin is my clean happy closet away from home.

If you could be a superhero, what would you want your powers to be? What would you call yourself?
Well I am one of those people who thinks love is the answer…I would want the power to replace hatred and intolerance with love and acceptance as for my name how about LoveLady …kinda like the LunchLady loose the hairnet add some high heels.. I’d be bringin’ the Love!!

If you had an extra room in your apartment, how would you use it?
I would recreate Jeannie’s Bottle

What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?
I never met a Potato Chip I didn’t like…

What’s your favorite thing about urBin?
Hmm …my favorite few things would be the exceptional customer service. The concept in general rocks and Urbin has done a beautiful job of making it a reality! and the convenience of pick up and delivery is not to be underestimated!!
