Born in Fort Worth TX, home to native sons Townes van Zandt and T Bone Burnett (a bandmate of her uncle's back in the ’60s) to a family of musicians and artists helped develop Jennifer Leonhardt's flexible approach to interpretation.
Her family moved to the east coast when she was still a baby, and she spent her early years between Washington, D.C., New York and Boston. With no television or stereo allowed in the house, she spent long hours teaching herself piano and guitar after school, eventually listening to Thelonious Monk in secret on a portable radio in her room late at night. Family time included harmonizing on everything from Appalachian traditionals and madrigals to jazz ballads and old-time spirituals, which gave her a broad musical vocabulary and became the groundwork for keeping in line with her own vision: music from life, for its own sake.
