An artist of striking versatility, Jennifer Porter follows her own muse

Multi-talented Independent Music Award-nominee shines bright with new music

After years working just under the radar in the music industry, Jennifer’s beautiful voice and evocative songs caught the attention of 12-time Grammy-winning producer, Jay Newland. "These Years", Jennifer’s seventh album to date, is the product of their collaboration. The album, which has been receiving rave reviews and significant airplay in both Europe and The United States, features Jennifer’s unique, sultry voice backed by a stellar band.  The album also showcases guest appearances by Grammy nominee C.J. Chenier on accordion and Country Music Hall-of-Famer, Charlie McCoy on harmonica and vibes.

Jennifer worked with longtime friends and Grammy-winners, Lawrence Manchester, and Adam Ayan on the mixing and mastering of the album. Manchester currently works as a producer and lead music mixer on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. To date, Ayan has mastered 42 Grammy Award-winning recordings.
Jennifer’s previous album "Easy Living", with Manchester, was nominated for a 2015 Independent Music Award in the Jazz With Vocals category, and received airplay throughout the United States, including over a year on KJAZZ in Los Angeles; WWOZ in New Orleans; and Public Radio International’s "Jazz After Hours."  Jennifer’s other Jazz albums include the highly-acclaimed, “The Way You Look Tonight,” and “Moonglow,” -- also collaborations with Manchester and Ayan.

“These Years” is heavily influenced by Soul, Blues, and Roots music, and though a departure from her previous Jazz and film score recordings, the album retains Jennifer’s rich, lovely sound.  In The United States, her song “Road To Redemption” has topped the National Independent Radio charts, and has been climbing up the Independent Music Network Country and Mainstream charts where it has been sitting at #2 for over twelve weeks. “Road To Redemption” has also reached #3 on The National Radio Hits Country charts and #9 on its AC and Top 40 charts.

A true “musician’s musician”, Jennifer is a member of the prestigious music honor society, Pi Kappa Lambda, which recognizes excellence in both musical performance and academics.  She is a talented vocalist whose repertoire spans from Jazz and Blues to Country and Opera.  She has sung with Classical and Jazz orchestras, including the world famous Glenn Miller Orchestra, and smaller combos, including her own quintet. She is also an accomplished Blues pianist and has appeared with C.J. Chenier, Nathan & The Zydeco Cha-Chas, and Buckwheat Zydeco’s band, Ils Sont Partis.

Jennifer is an artist who always follows her inner muse, and this has led her to have a career as an actor alongside her work in the world of music. To many of her fans, Jennifer is known as an award-winning stage and film actor, whose more than 80 stage credits include Betty in Chapatti, Rose in The Woolgatherer, Scarlett in Coyote Ugly, Bella in Angel Street, Rita in Educating Rita, Aldonza in Man of La Mancha and Patsy Cline in Always...Patsy Cline.
In the film world, Jennifer is known not just as an actor, but also as an award-winning film score composer and screenwriter. Jennifer starred in, and composed and performed the film score for THE BALLAD OF IDA AND DOOB (1999) and wrote, starred in, and composed and performed the film scores for the critically acclaimed MR. BARRINGTON (2003) and the multiple award-winning 40 WEST (2011).  For her work on 40 WEST, Jennifer received Awards of Merit for Acting and Original Score from The Accolade Competition, Gold Prestige Awards for Acting, Original Score and Original Song, and a Silver Prestige Award for Original Screenplay.

Jennifer is also a martial artist who holds a second degree black belt in Tai Jujitsu, and has advanced training in Kali and Jeet Kun Do. A strong believer in the power of unions, she is a proud member of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, the Writers Guild of America, SAG / AFTRA, and Actors’ Equity Association.
