Jennie has been singing ever since she can remember…She listened to the vocal greats of all time, Ella Fitzgerald, Shirley Horne, Carmen McRae, Norma Winstone, Carol Kidd and Blossom Dearie to name but a few and was gigging by the age of 14.
Jenny went on to study at the Leeds College of Music taking lessons from Tina May and singing with the infamous Ellington Repertory Orchestra. Her voice has a beautiful naïve quality but with the assurance and maturity of phrasing that has been likened to that of Astrud Gilberto.
Listening to Jennie sing completely unaccompanied is one of life’s pure and simple pleasures.
