Thanks for dropping by!

In conjunction with the release of my debut solo album, High Road Haven, I thought it was about time that I had a music-specific website. So here it is! You will find details on my entire musical career, current gigs and you can listen to examples of my work from the Audio link.

I would be so happy if you felt moved to leave any comments in the windows at the bottom of news clips. And if you wish to be informed of any upcoming gigs, fill out the form on the contact page.

Thank you to my dear friend Peter J Slack for helping me with some technical aspects and hosting of this site. Love ya, Peej!

Thanks for dropping by!

Warmly,
Jen
