Jenny Kern performed around Montreal during University before moving to NYC in 2013, where she started as a Page at NBC and quickly worked her way up to producer in the film and television industry. In 2018 Jenny decided to take a leap of faith and pursue full time her passion for music and songwriting. Drawing on her own experiences, her songs unfold through a confessional-style delivery revealing the strength that can only come through vulnerability.
“It’s almost cathartic, sharing emotion. Being open is not an easy feat for anyone. I want people to know that these songs come from an honest place. We all struggle to find comfort in ourselves while being open to the unexpected.”
In the fall of 2018, she recorded her debut EP and began performing at notable venues around New York City including Rockwood Music Hall and The Bitter End. Jenny’s debut EP is an intimate collection of songs from years of self-reflection on her personal experience with self-doubt, regret and the search for comfort in painful seasons.
In January 2019 she released her debut single, which received wide acclaim and immediately found an international audience on streaming platforms.
Shortly after she released her debut EP in April 2019, she was invited on her first international tour in Europe and was featured on MTV and ABC. “It’s been a whirlwind journey so far. One I would never have expected to happen so quickly. I hope to continue writing music that is new and different, resonating with people around the world.”
Jenny is currently writing and recording new music with producer Andy Seltzer (Maggie Rogers, Chelsea Cutler, Valley) set for release late 2019, early 2020.
