An icon of the Boston scene, singer and songstress Jennifer Matthews can rock like a folk punk PJ Harvey and downshift with the oblique nimble sensuality of Suzanne Vega. Her songs are missions from the frontlines of life, bell clear with unrelenting poetic honesty.
Matthews studied vocal performance at the University of Colorado in Boulder and at Denver's School of Music. While in Colorado, she established herself as a solo artist, performing in local bars and coffeehouses.
During this period she developed her unique vocal style and her songs gained recognition, leading to several awards from the Rocky Mountain Music Association. After a three-month tour in Japan, Korea and Hawaii, Matthews relocated to New York where she formed the five-piece band Beautiful Mud. After a highly acclaimed debut release and performing for several years in New York City clubs, the band separated.
Jennifer moved to Boston in 1998 to embark on a solo career. She has cultivated a sophisticated blend of rock with hints of funk & blues on her electric Baritone guitar. While maintaining her strong background in rootsy rock, she slings her blue Martin, combining both instruments equally into her distinctive style.
