AWARD WINNING MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST, SINGER-SONGWRITER AND PRODUCER BASED IN SOUTH EAST ENGLAND AND WOODSTOCK, UPSTATE NEW YORK
'Dreamland', Jennifer's first solo album is now available from CD Baby (here) and usual online outlets, and through Woodstock Arts in the Upstate area, and soon via Amazon. The album was recorded largely in Woodstock, Upstate New York, and features an all star band with Annie Whitehead (Elvis Costello, Dr John, Eric Clapton) on trombone and baritone horn, David Torn (David Bowie, K D Laing, David Sylvian) on guitar and loops, and Jerry Marotta (Peter Gabriel, Indigo Girls, Hall & Oates) on drums and percussion. There are guest contributions from Paul Brady, Sam Brown, Gary Dyson, Mitt Gamon, Dakota Lane, Danny Lane, Sally Ann Triplett, Phil Saatchi and Robert Wyatt, and from the original Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Helen Liebman, Peter Mc Gowan, Geoffrey Richardson, Steve Fletcher and Liam Genockey. The record was engineered by Matthew Cullen, Pete Caigan and Adam Armstrong in Woodstock (assisted by Joseph Quigly) and Mike Thorne at Rim Shot in the UK.
The cover image 'Refuge' is by Woodstock artist Lucinda Abra, and the CD also features original artwork by Dakota Lane.
