Jennifer discovered her love of singing in a small south Georgia church as a child. She credits her Grandad as one her greatest musical influences, as well as the gospel hymns he used to sing, like Amazing Grace, I'll Fly Away, and How Great Thou Art.
She moved to Austin Texas in 2000 to find her path in music. Through the years, she has worked with party bands Rotel and the Hot Tomatoes, The Pictures Band, and The Grooves, among others, as well as original music outfits ranging from folk trios to seven piece tribal pop bands.

Her theory on music is that by keeping it honest and real, it can enhance people's lives. Jennifer's music is Medicine for the Soul. Her songs are unique and insightful, showcasing layers of vocal harmonies on top of the melody, with soul-searching lyrics about life, love, and spirituality. She loves collaborating with new musicians and making friends in the process, and looks forward to the days of writing songs with her young daughter, who of course, loves to sing too.
MUSIC IS FUN. MUSIC IS REAL. MUSIC IS HOME.
