Biography


Jennifer is supported by the Irish Arts Council and is currently recording a debut album with Producer Stephen Shannon. 'Salient Point' EP was released with critical acclaim in 2010 on Jennifer's own label, Scuffle, which lead to a performance this year alongside Anna Calvi on episode 9 of the globally broadcasted music television program, Other Voices.
Ardent emotional experiences and daunting but lush perceptions of being feed the Salient Point EP. Vocals are soulful, adorned with harmonies and counter melodies and are lyrically unique in origin. The music is alternative in genre but also finds it’s roots in Jazz, Folk and Blues.
Latest shows can range from 'noir- folk' to a sneaky style of Dub depending on the what’s right for the occasion and how long the set is! Empirical knowledge, exoticism, a questioning of identity and home.....whether solo, accompanied or playing with the full band the music's target is up your spine.

Lyrics

After Berlin

Written By: Jennifer Evans

I'll meet you in Athy
After the sparks fly
and have burned our image
all across a new years sky
I'll have recovered from the shock
of a pulse above and hot
Though the temperature dropped

I'll have worn your black mesh
wet honest wedding dress
you'll have put me on a page
and slipped into a dark abyss
when left with a canon's kin
met secret and anarchic
slipped down to sleep
but rude arrest
bound and penned
to rude arrest

I'll meet you in Athy
half way between you and I
what a deal to strick
such delight and fright
I had the longest day
Last year
that weight
midnight
gunfire and smoke
it pressed upon
and cropped adhered
lent time all the locks
I had the longest day last year
that wait
that weight
