Indie Pop Rock / Alternative / Jazz / Blues – Sometimes sweet, occasionally heartbreaking, and always sincere, Chicago’s Jennifer Hall writes music that looks back to an age long gone while buzzing with a youthful edge. Combining influences such as Edith Piaf, Patsy Cline, Ray Charles, Rufus Wainwright, Jeff Buckley, and Wilco, this vocalist, songwriter and veteran performer has always had a goal of simply making great music despite genre or trend. Her highly personal debut album, “In This,” is available now and features pop, jazz, soul, and rock influences with powerful and adept vocals at its core. In the past year, Jennifer and her band have taken the Chicago music scene by storm, playing with and singing alongside national touring acts including The Damnwells, Harper Blynn, The Lumineers, William Beckett of The Academy Is… and Grammy-nominated artist Matthew Santos. Jennifer has headlined Schubas and Subterranean, playing for packed houses each time. 2012 is shaping up to be even more exciting. Close friends with compatible sensibilities and a long history, Jennifer Hall and her band consistently deliver unique, sincere, and honest music.
