Currently based in the Dallas area, Jennifer fostered a love of music early in life. Her father was a noted rockabilly musician, her mother a classically-trained pianist, and her brothers sang in multi-part harmony; it wasn’t long before Jennifer joined in. She learned to play piano, acoustic guitar, ukulele, and saxophone, while cultivating a warm and expressive singing voice.
Prior to arriving in Dallas, Jenn played (and replayed) many concert and club venues in the Chicago area as a solo performer, as well as with bands such as Face ‘N Time, Jennerator, Bad Girlfriend, and Allison Wonderband. She has cultivated a strong fan base, who return to hear her reinvention of new and classic pop, independent rock, country, and standard songs for acoustic guitar and ukulele. As a solo artist, she performs bravely and devoutly, taking chances, and inspiring her audiences to feel the beauty of music made without trickery or gadgets.
In addition to her performance schedule, Jennifer has contributed vocals and harmonies for two albums by Chicago songwriter Andrew Bender. She has also written some music of her own to be released at a later time. Though new to the Dallas scene, Jennifer is a veteran performer who is looking forward to new opportunities to grow her fan base and expand her repertoire.
