The Design / Bio

Charlottesville, Va's first ever Paramount Idol winner fronts amazing jam based jazz and funk fusion band!

Their influences: Erykah Badu, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jill Scott, YES, Lauryn Hill, Dave Brubeck, Talking Heads, India Arie and many many more because they are "out of the box!"

This show is high energy, down to earth, and fun!
Jason Bieler said Jennifer's a "charm to watch."
Jonathon Azu said her rendition of "At Last" took him back to inauguration.

In 2011, The Design released their first collection entitled, "We Are The Design." The songs, "Love to Love You" and Work Real Hard, have been aired on 106.1 The Corner and WNRN 91.9. Steadily becoming a local favorite, The Design has held residencies with Outback Lodge (Cville,Va), Baja Bean (on the corner), Rapunzel's Coffee and Books, and Fellini's #9.

In 2013 The Design released their second and first live album, "When Wit Hits The Fan." Songs, "Crumble" and "Cosmic Change" have been favorites and fan requests at live shows. This album was mixed and recorded by Gabe Taylor at Rapanzel's in Lovingston,Va.

In 2014 The Design started and joined many projects supporting all the genre's they dabble in. You may see members playing with these names:
The Design Quartet, Jen Tal and The HuZBand, Little Kings, Nefarious Characters, In Full Band, The Vagabonds, and Peacetime. As they say, "keep an eye" on We Are The Design, creating music is who they are.

Peace and Love : )
