Feeling a bit camera shy


Jennifer Kingwell is a musician and performer of delicious contrasts – a genre-blending diviner of

punk ukulele anthems to lush solo piano compositions, cabaret torch songs to epic alt-pop tracks.

Described as ‘dark, dazzling…. a formidable powerhouse’ (Herald Sun) and ‘equal parts Kate Bush

and Sergei Rachmaninov... a music theory case study with punk rock attitude’ (Skylashes) in

possession of a ‘dynamite voice’ (T-squat), Jennifer has performed alongside cult visionaries such

as The Dresden Dolls, Neil Gaiman, John Cameron Mitchell and Voltaire on both national and

international tours and is establishing herself as a rising force among Melbourne’s thriving music

and performing arts scene.

Born in Darwin and raised in Canberra, Jennifer is a classically trained pianist with a background in

computer music and experimental multimedia. Her debut EP The Lotus Eaters, released in 2014,

has been turning heads, earning a nod as a PBS FM 106.7 feature album in 2014 and receiving

airplay (ABC Radio National, JOY, SYN and RRR FMs) and and inclusion in ‘best new music’ lists

on blogs (What Sound, Kind Of Vibe, Tone Deaf) across Australia.

Jennifer is currently working on her debut LP, to be released in 2016, as well as a recording with

leading avant-garde ensemble Silo String Quartet, following on from their critically acclaimed

collaboration premiering at this year’s Melbourne Cabaret Festival, performing string and vocal

arrangements of Jennifer’s original material as well as intricately reimagined songs by artists such

as Tom Waits, PJ Harvey and The Knife.

Whether solo, with her ‘virtuosic’ band (Melbourne. Arts. Fashion) The Garland Thugs, or in

collaborations such as with Silo SQ, Jennifer’s shows are a thrilling pleasure for both eyes and ears,

bringing together performance art and music in a way that blurs the distinction between the two.

Jennifer also presents weekly program Glitter + Doom on independent radio station PBS FM.
