JENNIFER GRIMM
Jennifer Grimm
Growing up on the road was fun for Jennifer as she danced and sang her way across the country with her family's variety act for the first thirteen years of her life. After settling down in the Twin Cities in her teens, she attended public school for the first time and kept performing with her mother, Colleen Raye, in various venues including the Mall of America, Treasure Island Casino and Mystic Lake Casino.
While earning her degree in Mathematics from Augsburg College, Jennifer continued singing in clubs with 10-piece funk bands, in various cabaret and theater venues with theater companies, and in convention halls and churches as a featured vocalist with Augsburg College's Gospel Praise.
Soon after college, Jennifer ventured into her solo career, appearing on stages locally with such names as Garrison Keillor and Debbie Duncan, and in New York City, Europe and the Caribbean. With radio and recording success in local areas and overseas, Jennifer continues to base herself at home in the Twin Cities.
Some of Jennifer’s credits include performing at Carnegie Hall; Johnny Mercer Songbook Series at the Ordway; Steerage Song at the Fitzgerald Theater; earning the #2 spot on Aruba's year-end top 100 countdown; performing in New York City with shining press in The Village Voice; opening up for Oleta Adams at the St. Vincent Blues Festival; performing on Garrison Keillor's (creator of A Prairie Home Companion) Rhubarb Show; sharing performance events with Huey Lewis and The News, Michael Buble, and Martina McBride; starring in the Ordway's production of My Way, A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra; being the voice of the World Figure Skating Champions Tour theme song; and singing as a featured artist on many albums including Gene Adams' Jazz Anthology, Power of 10, The Minnesota Boychoir, Century Big Band, New York's Jonathan Rayson, Norah Long, Theater Latte Da, Girl Singers of the Hit Parade, Mark Croft, Tim Patrick and the Blue Eyes Band, Gourmet Jazz and LA's Holly Long.
Jennifer has a career as a voiceover artist as well, being selected as the singing/speaking voice for Target, OfficeMax, True Value, Edina Realty, HealthPartners, virtuwell.com, Levaquil, KMart, Only Deals, Minnesota Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Glucerna, RightSize Smoothies, Doctors Say Yes, Maplewood Toyota, Roseville Midway Ford, CreditAnswers, FIG, PerfectMatch.com, Papa Murphy's, QuitPlan, Bremer Bank, Grand Casino, and many more.
Recently, a few original song placements in SHOWTIME's House Of Lies, NBC's Parenthood (Seasons 1 & 2), USA's Suits, TLC's Sarah Palin's Alaska, HULU's Casual, and NBC's Sing Off have been exciting and have led to more opportunities writing for SONY and being published by UNIVERSAL PUBLISHING. Jennifer's music can now be found on www.jennifergrimm.com and iTunes.
