Jennifer Mylod

Jennifer grew up in a musical family, and there was always music in the air. Jennifer quickly fell in love with the words & rhymes of Simon & Garfunkel, the passions of Johnny Cash & Tom Rush and Karen Carpenter… and learned to see the beauty & simplicity of the earth, through the lyrics of John Denver & Judy Collins. These influences greatly spurred her creative nature to write... which still haunts her to this day, as lyrics, images and concepts flood her days.
The baritone uke, guitar & mountain dulcimer were her first instruments... but Jennifer's classical music training began with the cello. The soulful depths and tones drew her to this instrument and she played all through school, and was eventually a member of a small Baroque orchestra, and also joined a local Adult Orchestra years later.
Moving out of the area, kind of ended the classical direction for Jennifer, and she shifted her attention to playing fiddle, which she jokingly admits is MUCH easier to travel with & fit in the car.
It was the patterns & lilting tunes of the ancient, traditional Irish melodies that caught her attention, and became a new direction for her musical passions.
She plays fiddle solely by ear, and believes Irish music is best that way, as sheet music is playing with your eyes… where as playing by ear -is from your heart… which lets the passion shine through. Jennifer always says - play with passion… or don't play at all.
Jennifer''s first original cd entitled “At This Moment” was released in 1999. This is comprised of all original, contemporary, folk songs with a twist of Celtic.
In 2006, Jennifer & her husband Philip were hired by the History Channel to provide part of the musical soundtrack for an Irish documentary , entitled “Paddy Whacked – The History of the Irish Mob” based on a book by T.J. English. They provided 6 musical tracks for this documentary which has been broadcast yearly (usually around St Paddy’s day) and sold as DVD’s.
They took the tracks for this project, and recorded a few more traditional songs and added it to the mix - and released their "Mylodic Isle" cd... in 2006. This is for sale here on CD Baby also.
