From Europe to America she has captivated listeners that have had the privilege of hearing her and/or seeing her live. Her passion is undeniable, her focus is immutable and her goal is to take the industry by storm. Born in the small town of Ozark, Alabama Jen grew up in a home filled with song. Her mother a singer encouraged Jen constantly. Her father an Army pilot whose career often times forced the family to relocate from state to state causing her to rely on song as the only constant in her life.
Moving from San Diego to Germany arriving finally at her mother’s hometown of Sundsvall, Sweden, Jennifer settled there and developed her musical and acting talents. Being involved in the music business through her mother’s endeavors prepared Jennifer for her unofficial entrance into recording and performing records of her own. A chance meeting with local music producers in her hometown presented opportunities to record original material, ultimately perfecting Jennifer’s studio recording ability. Seizing every opportunity she could and inevitably exploiting every musical situation, she decided to take a chance on returning back to the States. On February 2004 Jennifer arrived in New York City. New York was the city of her dreams and living in Harlem created a strong synergy of soul and culture that it influenced her to audition at the world famous Apollo Theater.
The overwhelming response and inspiration was unimaginable. She decided to move across the country to Washington State where most of her family is. New York has been a great place for Jennifer to grow but there is no place like Seattle. Months of dedication, tears, joy, laughter, pain, frustration and triumph resulted in a project that will be embraced by millions of people that can relate to genuine artistry. The Swedish – American bombshell is a breath of fresh air ready to make her mark on the world.
