Jennifer Sullivan

Jennifer Sullivan (Born Aug 20 1987, TX) is an American musician, composer, & singer-songwriter. Main instruments are mandolin, guitar, & piano. Her music has an indie pop/rock sensibility drawn from western music influences, particularly the jazz, blues, & country/folk music genres.

Since moving to New York City from Austin, TX in 2010, Jennifer has been producing a debut full-length album & performing live as a band. She was granted free studio time as a select recording artist for Converse exclusively at Rubber Tracks in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The album's first single, Black Cat, (Released 1.13.13 - now available) recently debuted on NPR-affiliate radio station KUT. The LP (Coming Spring 2013) features all-original poetry, songs, horn & string arrangments, as well as eclectic instrumentation including melodica, organ, baritone sax, banjo, bassoon, flute, and accordion. She previously released one EP, Extended Play (2010), which one critic described as "...an indie-jazz infusion cemented with a voice that's reminiscent of the greats of the last millunium" (Peter Harris, IndieSounds).

Jennifer states Patsy Cline and Billie Holiday as her greatest influences; God as her muse. A lifelong self-taught musician, Jen started singing in church but has since received formal training in both voice and guitar. She lives in Manhattan, New York City.
