Jen Kearney: Biography
Originally from Boston, Massachusetts, Jen Kearney has spent some time seasoning her particular style of original music. Her latest album, “Age of Blame” is truly an amalgamation of musical styles including Soul, R&B, Funk, Rock, and Latin.
Kearney has recorded and released six studio albums, and has done session work on many other projects. She has toured both as a solo act and with a full band. She recently recorded and toured with the UK’s premier Latin Jazz group, Snowboy and the Latin Section and has also shared the stage with Los Lobos, Daryl Hall, Mavis Staples, John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers, The Derek Trucks Band and more.
“Jen Kearney is a gifted singer who can belt out a song with the best of them. She puts a refreshing new spin on funk music, showing flashes of funk’s horn-drenched heyday in the ’70s, but also modernizing it with thoughtfully conceived lyrics… Her album further includes top-notch balladry and a touch of Latin excitement. And the climactic song ‘Sanctuary in Sabotage’ is simply mesmerizing.” - Steve Morse (Billboard, Rolling Stone)
