Jenny Kohls / Bio

Jenny Kohls has been interested in music since she was a small child. She started playing rhythm guitar at the age of 12 and went on to form her first band, Extant, when she was 17. After high school she starting gigging on her own and became a regular player in the Des Moines music scene by 2001.

From 2001 to 2006 she focused on songwriting and developing her guitar playing until she eventually had formed her own style and sound.

She released her first record, Faders Up, in 2007 with her band The Honeybees. The release of that album created media opportunities on the local radio stations and in local papers, which ultimately resulted in gigs opening for touring acts and playing music festivals.

From 2008 to 2010, Jenny continued playing solo gigs in addition to performing around town with local favorites, Kiriko.

She released her first solo album, Whiskey Nights & Bright Lights, in 2010 and has since been working with The Honeybees, Cover Grrls and most recently playing lead guitar for Patresa Hartman.

Jenny has done some touring around the midwest with The Honeybees and has played solo in New York, NY with Reyna Lauren from London. Jenny's song, Come On Out, has been dubbed "the gay anthem" by Rae Fehring of The Honeybees and it was featured in a One Iowa video for National GSA Day (Gay Straight Alliance Day).

Jenny is involved with other local musicians in her community's womens songwriting circles, put on by local favorites Mary McAdams and Patresa Hartman.

Currently Jenny is co-writing/collaborating with Rae Fehring for songs on their next 'bees album.
