About Jen 

Nothing like having a baby to help you priorotise your spare time! With such little spare time, I had to start doing what was really important to me. I'd always loved music, singing, old musicals, jazz and vintage glamour, but I didn't have the self esteem and was too shy to study or perform music. I basically fluffed around with other career aspirations for a long time. On occasional nights, (after a few vino's) I would confess to my closest that "one day I would like to sing". Thankfully my closest was dating a jazz musician and he asked me to perform with them at Red Bennies. My thoughts were, "Jenny, are you going to say no again and be pathetic? Or are you going to give this a serious go?". Thankfully the mantra "DON'T BE SHIT", motivated me to start getting singing lessons with Parke O'dwyer - SLS singing teacher in Malvern (fabulous and highly recommend to anyone wanting to sing better!!!)

Big thanks to Adam Hall and the Velvet Playboys for giving me that opportunity! Super happy/cool music btw! Check it out! And can Adam Hall sing or what!!!

so the first gig went pretty well

The first gig went pretty well. I discovered that performing was indeed SUPER FUN, and that I must do more. I put an add up on Melband and luckily enough (right place, right time). Dr Crask and His Swinging' Elixir needed a new vocalist (LUCKY ME!).

Big thanks to the Dr Crask crew for being nice to me and encouraging. Without that, I would have got scared off and probably stopped singing.

I'd also like to mention Hiroki Hoshino and Sam O'halloran who have been in Destination Moon with me for a while now, super talented guys and really, really delightful people. 

I’ve now released my second and even better album (if I don’t say so myself) he he :) called CALL OF THE WILD. Please check it out.

My vintage christmas EP is so much fun for Christmas and it’s called DO YOU LOVE CHRISTMAS?. Merry Christmas :)
