THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

So Much Fun! - March 31, 2017

Playing with a few different groups lately (including my family), recording a bunch of audiobooks, being the voice on a children's book series, starting some new projects, and spending some quality time with my children and my sweetheart! 

Thank you for your interest in and support of my music and projects - one of the reasons I've been put here on Earth is to sing and I am so grateful that I have been able to find people like you to spend my time and share my music with.

Check out the schedule and come say Hi!

2017! - January 3, 2017

Happy New Year!!

After a great run of Christmas Shows @ NorthCoast Repertory Theatre in Solana Beach, CA, I'm glad to be back in the North celebrating the holidays with the family...

 

Starting Sunday, January 1, 2017, I'll be taking up a Sunday spot @ Crooners in MN.  Every Sunday night from 8PM-10:30PM, I'll be joined by different musicians weekly for a great mix of old and new, classics and originals.  

 

It's a great place to hear live music and have a cocktail with dinner. Join me.

Interview - February 17, 2010

Hey there - I was just interviewed by a music placement site and thought it might be cool to post the interview here for you!

Q: Where did you grow up?

A: I grew up on the road with my family singing in resorts, lounges, casinos, theme parks, etc. We had a home base near Minneapolis/St. Paul and another out by Atlantic City where my grandmother lived. After getting off of the road around age 13, I ended up completing high school and college in Minneapolis where I still reside with my husband and two children.

Q: What made you realize that music was your path?

A: Music is the family trade. Since birth, all of the children were steeped in show business and it only feels natural for it to be at least part of my path, if not my entire focus.

Q: How would you describe the music that you typically create?

A: I create quite a few different types, depending on the need. The most consistent quality in the music I create is just that. Quality. I pride myself on being versatile and able to jump in, figure it all out and perform/create accordingly.

Q: Who are your biggest musical influences?

A: My family, of course, but besides that, Peggy Lee, 90's hip-hop and R&B, 40's vocal pop, Mel Torme and Nat King Cole.

Q: What makes your music unique?

A: I like the blend of the old showbiz sensibility mixed with today's flavor and mentality. Good lyrics, catchy hooks, old-time sound, today's need for a great voice.

Q: Has there been one particular moment in your musical career that you're most proud of?

A: Jumping out to New York to do a solo show. I had grown up as the daughter, the sidekick, the bonus, the chick singer in a band of boys, etc. I decided to do my very first solo show all the way out in NYC. It was a big dive into doing things on my own. It went very well and was received as such in the Village Voice that year. Loved it. Also, my After Noon album as my first all-original venture. I'm particularly proud of that.

Q: What's next for you?

A: Trying to get my music to a larger audience while still churning out the music that's needed here in town to stay alive. Jingles and weddings and voice overs and commercials make the cash, but going back on the road with my family promoting an album would be right up my alley and is certainly where I'm most at home.

Playing - January 19, 2010

Hey there!

I'm just playing a bunch and rehearsing a bunch for this crazy Carnegie Hall thing in April. Tough music, but it's nice to be seriously challenged musically. I think I just said I'm musically challenged.... Well, you know what I mean....

It's another girl! - July 9, 2009

Little Rio Lauren was born June 26, 2009 at 9lbs 4oz and with a full head of dark brown hair. She's a delight. Eating, sleeping, and doing what babies do best like a champion. Pictures are posted in the Photo Gallery!

Spring 2009 Update - May 7, 2009

A few quick things...

First off, I made it past the Semi-Finals and am on to the Finale next weekend for a slick $10,000. If you're too new to the newsletter to know what I'm talking about, there is a pretty funny singing contest I'm in that has been going on for quite a few weeks and quite a few rounds. Now, I've made it to the Finale, May 16th, where 20 finalists sing and one lucky stiff walks away with 10 grand. Yipes.

If you're a facebook person, you can see how my friend, Sandi, chronicled the events thus far by following this link: http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/album.php?aid=16340&id=1598884454&ref=nf ______

Secondly, in the news, we are 'scheduled' to have this baby the last week of June. Thursday, June 25th, to be exact. So we are looking forward to meeting our new baby girl!
_____

Lastly, there has been a cancellation of the Hell's Kitchen show later this month. I hope to be able to make my way back in there later this year...
_____

Thanks for your support, and, if you're interested in a goofy time, come down to cheer me on at the Medina Ballroom Saturday, May 16th, at 7pm for the Finale of the $10,000 contest! Tickets are $10.00 and more details are available at https://medinaentertainment.com/medina/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=56&category_id=1&manufacturer_id=0&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=145
See ya!

I'm expecting again... - April 20, 2009

Not sure if I sent this information out on my mailing list, but I'm expecting another baby girl this summer. We have our other little girl who will be turning 3 in August and she will get her little sister late June this year.

We are very excited!!!

That's the news!

CBS Singing Family Face Off - January 27, 2009

Still not doing much in the way of public performances for the time being, but you can catch a quick glimpse of me and my family on the
CBS Early Show website.

My mom, Colleen Raye, thought it would be a good idea to enter into
the Singing Family FaceOff, so we did a quick video and uploaded it
onto their site.

The direct link is

Cool - check it out if you have a chance.
If we make it to the finals, I'm sure there will be an online vote or
something, so I may be bringing it up again!

We are through recording... CD Release Party July 3rd at The Dakota! - June 11, 2008

The new album is coming along great!
We recorded it all in one week and are in the process of making some
final decisions and mixing. It is a great album full of brand new
original tunes that give you that perfect front-porch-swinging,
nothing-to-do, summer afternoon, easy, lazy type of feeling. Can't
wait for you to hear it.

And here is where you can!
Thursday, July 3rd, 2008 - CD Release Party @ The Dakota
7pm - 11pm
Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant • 1010 Nicollet • Downtown Minneapolis

I may be sending a preview of a song or two to those on my mailing
list as they come out. I'm so proud of this record - really looking
forward to sharing it all with you soon...

In the meantime, I'll be doing other stuff (and a few tunes off of
the new disc) with Jocko MacNelly on guitar at Rossi's this month.
AND this month, we're doing another fun run of THE GIRL SINGERS OF THE
HIT PARADE with my Mother, Sister and Aunt at The Phipps Center for
the Arts in Hudson, WI and The Old Log Theater by Lake Minnetonka.
All the details can be found by clicking the Schedule Button. Thx so much for stopping by!

Spring is here... - May 10, 2008

Coming up... - October 19, 2007

Hey!
So much has been happening in the household here. Rowan turned 1 and just started walking this past weekend, Aaron (my husband) is back teaching for the school year and my shows and projects have been almost overwhelming. I've been happy, of course, to get the calls!!

Lately, voice over work has been coming my way and all sorts of special projects for events, shows, parties, and albums. It's been a fun fall so far!

Coming up, DJ Spur and I will be working toward some more performances of our original House Music with the potential for an entire album release in 2008. You can hear some of our stuff at http://www.myspace.com/djspur Also, more immediately, I'll be appearing with some family members in another performance of The Girl Singers Of The Hit Parade

Being a Mommy - February 11, 2007

That's what I've been up to lately. My little girl is about to be 6 months old and we're cutting the umbilical cord again by mommy no longer being a food source. That frees me up a teensy bit more to go ahead and concentrate on music.
As the public shows roll in, I'll be letting you know about them - and if you're not on the e-mailing list, click and join at the top of the page - I'll send you updates on what's going on and where I'm playing.
Can't wait to get back out and have some more fun!! See you soon.
~jennifer

It's a...... - August 26, 2006

Girl!!!!!
Rowan (row-ANN) Elizabeth was born Friday, August 18th, 2006 at 7:18AM, 21 and 1/2 inches long and weighing in at 10 lbs, 5 and 1/4 oz! Oh Baby!!!
She's lovingly named after one of our grandmothers who will be 96 this year - so cool.
Check out the baby pics in the Photo Gallery!

Summertime - May 31, 2006

Hi!
Midwestern heat and humidity with a baby in my tummy is a challenge... whew... 10 more weeks or so to go. Can't wait to meet the little thing. The Girl Singers show is coming up and then I'll be taking some time off to sit in some air-conditioned room with my feet up and await the arrival of the rambunctious one. I'll check in once the little one arrives. Talk to you then. Happy Summertime!
