Bio

Jenny Leigh brings an edge to country music with soulful grit, larger than life vocals, and a blend of inspirations derived from rural MD, Baltimore City, Central North Carolina, and Nashville, TN.

Music has been the red thread through Jenny's life as she grew up performing in school plays, recitals, and musical theatre productions, and continued in college when she joined Elon University's a cappella group, Twisted Measure. Recently featured in People Magazine, USA Today, and Time, this award-winning group ignited Jenny's passion to combine her love for singing and writing to pursue a solo career.

Jenny returned to her roots with piano, learned to play guitar and mandolin, and began visiting Nashville frequently after graduation. While working at Baltimore's Under Armour
headquarters in the marketing department, Jenny earned an East Coast following sharing the stage with some of today's biggest acts including: Dierks Bentley, The Eli Young Band, Joe Nichols, Gloriana, Jana Kramer, Cole Swindell, The Cadillac Three, to name a few. She gained the support of Baltimore's industry-award winning country radio station, 93.1 WPOC opening their Sunday in the Country Festival with the National Anthem multiple times. She performed at the world-renowned Preakness, Baltimore Marathon, and teamed up with Cam Newton and DJ Araabmuzik to deliver vocals for Under Armour's commercial "Cam's Night Out".

She caught the attention of talent scouts for the reality singing TV show, "The Next" and ended up as a finalist under mentorship of John Rich of Big & Rich. John advised Jenny to move to Nashville and kick her career into high gear ASAP, which is what she did. She raised 100% of the funds needed to record an EP in music city, and moved to Nashville with co-writers, Adam Wakefield, and Ryan Sorestad.

Jenny was selected to perform on one of the main stages of CMA Festival her first summer in Nashville as an unsigned artist. She went on to win the Nashville Emerging Star
Songwriting Competition to open for Little Big Town, currently tours as a vocalist with Adam Wakefield, who is the Season 10 runner-up of The Voice, and works behind the scenes on CMT's show, "Nashville" as Hayden Panettiere's body & stunt double. Jenny has been a guest of WSMV's Channel 4 show "Today in Nashville" where she has performed her songs "Old Oak Tree", "Boots Off", and debuted her
recent single, "Spitfire." Look for new releases in 2017!

"I am in love with Nashville and the inspiration that comes from the people within it. I feel incredibly honored that my journey as brought me to a home where I can walk alongside the greats and strive to make an impact on this thing we so casually call music." -JL

Testimonials:

"Aside from having the voice, the look and the sound that will lead her to success, Jenny has this uncanny ability to connect with an audience. There's an aura around Jenny that I don't even see with many chart topping artists. Catch her live once and I promise you'll be online looking for more music and upcoming dates."

-Chad Harrison, Producer, "The Next:Fame is at Your Doorstep"


"Jenny Leigh is a crazy talented artist with an intriguing combination of sass and sweetness.

I am eagerly looking forward to following Jenny’ s success as she continues in her development as a musical artist."

-Juliana Kim, Senior Supervising Producer, 'The Next:Fame is at Your Doorstep"


"Jenny Leigh has a powerful voice that conveys every emotion in the spectrum, and she's not afraid to bare her soul when she writes a song. Combine that with being one of the most
beautiful women you will ever see, and I'd say you have a dangerous combination."
