British singer-songwriter Jen Armstrong has been writing and performing music since the age of 12. She has developed a unique pop / rock style with catchy, tongue in cheek lyrics coupled with a beautifully powerful vocal. Jen's weapon of choice is piano which means the odd pop ballad is thrown in for good measure, giving her music true power grabbing style!
Born in a village home to more sheep than people, Jen Armstrong didn't have the most competitive of starts. This gave her a shock when, moving to Leeds to study a degree in pop music she realised that actually, she wasn't the only person who could write songs and sing them well. Luckily, she has developed a unique pop / rock style with catchy, tongue in cheek lyrics coupled with a beautifully powe...rful vocal which gives her the edge over the usual pop songwriters.
Jen finished in the top 6 in her year, being number 1 in performance, and followed this with a MA in Music Performance. Jen has written and worked with acclaimed producer and arranger Dr Richard Niles, the results of which you can experience via her Myspace page. She has also collaborated with Mark Walker (Westlife, Kelly Rowland, Five).
Having recently played Shepherds Bush Empire supporting British singer-songwriter Nerina Pallot, Jen is now experiencing the touring life - in January 2012 she heads off to LA to collaborate and play shows over 6 weeks.
2012 is set to be a great year with an EP on the horizon and more UK gigs to follow.
