Jen Tal | Guitar & Vocals
Jacob Tal | Percussion
Jennifer's background is much like any other soul singer's: she first started singing in church with her family at services, then branched out to school choirs from elementary school through college. Jen has directed, written, and arranged for choirs as well and her songwriting and singing were first influenced by her mother on Autoharp, then later by experimenting with the piano on her own. Nowadays, the guitar is her instrument of choice.
As Jen grows musically, people seem to ask her more and more frequently to play songs she's been working on. Hearing Jen and her acoustic guitar reminds many listeners of Lauryn Hill or India Arie (solo). The acoustic soul brings to the forefront Jen's perspective on true love, being a woman, modern society, and much more. She is generally accompanied by her partner, The Design Drummer, Jacob Tal, who tastefully fills in the space with the djimbe, cajon, and other percussion.
