Jenn's life unfolded in Waconia, Minnesota, where the family would regularly gather around the piano and sing. In addition to traditional American music, the 1930 standard "On the Sunny Side of the Street" was a favorite duet for Jenn and her father.

After graduating from high school, Jenn attended Boston's esteemed Berklee College of Music. It was a far cry from Waconia.  "I was so intimidated by the campus", Jenn confides, "walking to class down city streets." She dealt with this fish-out-of-water syndrome by throwing herself into her music-education studies.

Being in Boston did, however, give Jenn the opportunity to front a country-leaning cover band that played up and down the East Coast, as well as for U.S. Troops in Iraq and Kuwait. She regards her tenure with the group as a critical learning experience.

She calls her subsequent entry into "real life", as an aspiring Nashville artist, a trial by fire". She played the famed Bluebird Cafe and developed fruitful relationships with other songwriters but was mostly rejected by Music City's power brokers.  Undeterred, Jenn unveiled her debut album, Keep Looking' for Love, in 2009.

In 2012, with a few self-booked tours under her belt, she released Jealous, which featured "Jealous with Angels". On a shoestring budget, she shot a video for the song, then posted it on YouTube. The U.K.’s Mail Online later reported what happened next - "The song first came to prominence thanks to veteran DJ Simon Bates, when he played it on his smooth radio show ... The response was enormous, and soon it was part of the playlist on Radio 2, which led to BBC Breakfast flying Jenn in to play live."

Jenn went on to be the first international independent artist to have three singles

  • Jealous of the angels
  • Not Yet
  • Missin’ a man
These songs were playlisted at Radio 2 the most listened to radio station in Europe.
