jen’s talents shine through in her lyrical honesty and eclectic songwriting, covering a wide spectrum of emotions that go beyond simple angst.  When presented by her stirring voice, they are made all the more evocative.  Combining her extensive musical prowess with a sensual yet ballsy stage presence, jen’s live shows are arresting and unforgettable.

In October of 2014 came jen's third solo release following up "Less Than Perfect For This World" and "jen bye". "Higher" represents a first time collaboration with friends and songwriters Wenty Morris & D.A. Young of Morris & Young.

As jen is typically a 'lone SheWolf' in her writing and creative efforts, this is truly an example of the whole being greater than the sum of it's parts. While an artistic departure from past projects, the cohesiveness of jen's personal style remains.

In August 2007, jen produced a well-crafted, eclectic alternative pop/rock CD with bad sister music’s release of “Less Than Perfect For This World”.  She hired on bassist Jason P. Chesney and drummer Christopher Allis, along with some other special guests including Wenty Morris, Michael Starr, Shon Sullivan and Dan Marfisi.

This album is laced with interesting stick-in-your-head melodies, boldly candid lyrics and fearless conviction.  This introspective collection of songs has age, wisdom, a little damage, and an incisive edge that doesn't sacrifice hope for cynicism. 

In December 2001, jen entered producer Denny Weston Jr.’s studio to record her first 6-song EP, the Self-Titled debut release from bad sister music.  With cohorts Michael McCarthy (guitar), Jeff Manol (bass), and Jim Loftus (drums), jen created a disc that is fresh and compelling with raw and edgy pop/rock tunes that can’t be ignored.

She has worked with various artists and producers over the years providing vocals, piano, guitar, and production for Film & Television and original projects.  Past credits include lead vocals in electronica band Emerald Vein, founded by former punker Bob Young of Boston’s UZI (Sub-Rosa Records), keyboards and vocals for eenie meenie records recording artist, Shon Sullivan’s (Goldenboy, Elliot Smith, Neil Finn, Josh Haden of Spain) former band Moonwash, session work for: Dan Marfisi @ Jones House Music (Poe, Bratz), Wenty Morris & D.A. Young @ Morris & Young, Jon Coco & Jamie Anderson @ SWAG Music Group, Krishna Das featuring Lily Haden (produced by Rick Ruben), Amy Spear (produced by Christian Nesmith), featured artist for Roland Corporation, Michael McCarthy & the Beautiful Fools and others.
