"Club Reviews"

"Appelquist shines with her Fiona Apple meets Jewel meets Vanessa Carleton approach. It was the type of performance a seasoned artist typically gives. But, Appelquist added other elements to it –warmth and sincerity to a degree that few artists possess."

"Honest, Heratfelt and Pure - simple in its essence & exciting in its revelations"

"L.A. Music Awards, April 29, 04 Monsoons, Santa Monica"

Okay... time for the last act of the night. I kinda felt sorry for her... thinking..oh dear.. how can you follow that. But you know what? This one did! Jennifer Applequist ( Jennifer is another entrepreneurial female who has booked shows at 14 Below and other venues, while maintaining a music career of her own. I've only heard her once briefly at one of the FemMuse shows. I was too sidetracked with details to pay that much attention to her. Well.. this time I had no choice.

Jennifer came out with her back-up guitarist and they just started to play. This was quite a toned down set of what had just transpired. It took us a moment or two to adjust. But when we did, we were all ears. She didn't seem to be affected by the previous performance. I admired that. I couldn't have done that. Let's say follow Steve Vai... I'd freeze up like a rose in December. This was good to watch. I always learn something when I'm watching performers, no matter what genre of music. Jenn's songs were really good, with a message (details on lost napkins..) that she conveyed convincingly. She's got a really interesting vocal sound and great range. I was impressed. A bit punky here and there... then soft.. then determined.. then I said, we were all ears.

Jennifer Appelquist has a lot to draw from when digging deep for her newest lyric. As the talented daughter of a military father, she has traveled throughout the United States and most of Western Europe. Born on an army base in Missouri, she’s spent her childhood years moving around the country and living abroad. Georgia, Virginia, San Francisco, San Deigo, Austin, TX, and Stuttgart, Germany have all been called home, each serving as its own inspirational step in her creative path. Inevitably, her journey landed her in the entertainment capital of the world; Los Angeles, where she currently resides writing music and performing to growing crowds.

Sweet melodies and heartfelt lyrics form the foundation for this female artist. With a voice that is hauntingly beautiful, she has received airplay on both radio and television, record deals with Warner Brothers, and worked with renowned Grammy Award winning producers. She has performed with distinguished acts such as SARA BARIELLES, TRAIN, JASON MRAZ, and TYLER HILTON on some of America’s most coveted stages, from Los Angeles’s HOUSE OF BLUES, to Austin’s historically famous ANTONE’S. Each step of the way she mesmerizes audiences and inherits dedicated fans, never disappointing and consistently inspiring.

Named in Music Connection Magazine as one of the top 100 unsigned artists in Los Angeles 2 years in a row, is a recipient of the LOS ANGELES MUSIC AWARDS for Adult Contemporary Artist of the Year and a semi-finalist for the International Songwriting Competition.
