...her interest... lies in more recent developments in voice production and expression, and her work, both as performer and composer, shows this to a degree unmatched by any other contemporary creative musician in Britain.

Feeling a bit camera shy


I trained classically as a composer at the Guildhall School of Music. I've written to commission for classical ensembles, including choirs and operas. But my first love has always been 'singer songwriting'. I like nothing more than the nakedness of singing solo with piano or guitar. Getting to the heart of the music through performing it myself. I have always had this double edge - singing solo, and writing for other people. The commissions are great, but not as great as gigging solo! I've developed my voice through singing with free improvisers and non western musicians - and this brings a certain risky edge to my singing - but the guts for me are in the tunes and the words I write. I continue to write for others - currently developing a new music theatre piece, but put me on stage with a piano and guitar and hear the raw Jenni - without the trimmings of a classical education! That's the real thing!
