Powerhouse vocals, soaring guitars, honky tonk rhythms and Muscle Shoals soul is at the heart of Funkyjenn’s musical melange.
Funkyjenn is a native daughter of the Golden West. Born in Hollywood to a show business family, she cut her teeth in musical theater, songwriter demo tapes and background vocals for many LA bands before writing her own material. As a young child, Funkyjenn literally grew up on the soundstage of Dick Clark’s “American Bandstand”. Every Saturday was an invitation to a world filled with rock goddesses, pop princesses, AM-70 kings and soul queens. Her live performances are filled with the same raw, powerful emotion as inspired as the very performers Funkyjenn grew up watching. Powerhouse vocals, soaring guitars, honky tonk rhythms and Muscle Shoals soul is at the heart of Funkyjenn’s musical melange. She is a chugging rock and soul machine who harkens back to a day when live studio recording, analog machines and the smell of pressed vinyl ruled the Sunset Strip. Her voice has also been featured on albums by The Mighty Stef (QOTSA producer + Them Crooked Vultures bassist Alain Johannes), Scott Mellis (Blind Melon bassist + producer Brad Smith). She has performed in front of thousands at the Hollywood Bowl and historical venues all over the West Coast but her favorite gigs are the infamous backyard jams she hosts featuring Los Angeles’ finest musicians.
