Jennifer Richman / Bio
Sometimes we survive through our art, and sometimes we save others. Jennifer Richman has done both. The Brooklyn born and bred singer/songwriter has a penchant for uplifting lyrics and songs of hope and inspiration. Her song “Beautiful Girl” spent over 30 weeks on Top 40 and Adult Contemporary Charts in 2010, and Richman was nominated as Best Female Artist and Best New Artist of 2010 by New Music Weekly Magazine. Jennifer Richman’s songwriting has won her comparisons to Jewel and Joni Mitchell, while her voice recalls Shania Twain and Mindy Smith. All of these are fair assessments, but fail to capture the essence of who Jennifer Richman is.
Jennifer Richman brings you into her stories like an old friend. It is this quality, more than any other that distinguishes Richman as an artist. Her songs touch chords in her listeners because they are honest stories told from the well of memory and the depths of emotion. Her drive to heal and inspire has informed everything that Richman has ever done, and she brings that drive to the world in song.
Jennifer Richman is the change she wishes to see in the world. Devoted to the spiritual process, Jen set out on four trips to India, where she studied dehypnotic meditation under the guidance of Swami Yogiraj Nanak Chand, and Nada Yoga, the yoga of sound, through Yogavani Mission. Devoted to a life of service, Jen has worked tirelessly to help people with autism connect with others through sensory integration and the healing powers of music.
Jennifer Richman’s debut album, Flowers Of Gold, finds Richman weaving her personal experiences into song like a master songwriter. The beatific sound of her voice puts listeners immediately at ease, and Richman fills her songs with messages of hope, comfort and survival. Richman is currently working on her sophomore effort, due in 2013; a more mature musical affair informed by years of honing her musicianship and vocal craft, paired with inspiration from the passing of friends and the perspectives gained on concepts such as thankfulness and forgiveness. All of this is blended with Richman’s trademark blend of insightful lyrics laced with hope for a better world.
