"Jenn Lindsay is so good. She's absurd."
-- Nate Borofsky,
2001 Boston Music Awards Outstanding New Singer/Songwriter

Jenn Lindsay is an NYC-based folksinger who was raised by wolves on the moors of England. Okay, really truly, she's from San Diego, but she's still a lot of fun. And her shows, if not wolfish, are certainly energetic, enjoyable and intelligent. Lach from the NYC East Village's Sidewalk Café Anti-folk Scene has recently named her, "an exciting newcomer... fun, poignant, and charming...a most welcome addition."

Jenn started gigging in Liverpool UK, and moved on to San Francisco where she quickly made a name for herself as an influential and integral artist to the East Bay political scene. She regularly played her original guitar tunes at activist gatherings, Take Back the Night rallies, political art festivals, and local coffeehouses and nightspots. JENN LINDSAY was employed as a musical activist by the Stanford Women's Community Center, the Stanford Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual Community Resources Center, and by the Stanford Coalition Against Sexual Assault.

JENN LINDSAY writes super-fun super-duper honest lyrics and she tries hard, as a folksinger, to be a spokesperson for political issues, while also striving to write music that can be enjoyed in an apolitical context. Because she doesn't know what she's doing, really, her music retains the inventive and compelling stamp of complete, joyful naïveté. Coupled in turn with a dusty natty wacky straight up folky sense of what she needs to say to make her way, JENN LINDSAY's a hot potato, and happily so.

"Jenn Lindsay is an important and inspiring new voice on the music scene. Her lyrics are original and either funny or moving, often both. She's documenting the artist's life in New York City in these strange times, and she does it
really well. I'm a huge fan!"
-- Elizabeth Stark (author of Shy Girl)

"Sardonic, intelligent acoustic rock songs."
-Mike McHugh, C-Note NYC

"A most exciting, poignant, and charming...a most welcome addition."

"edgy, intricate, sometimes strange and controversial and always a showcase for some excellent lyrics"

"a welcome blast of taste and sincerity"

"the beauty and emotion behind these lyrics achieve something that I have never really heard before"

"thought-provoking lyrics, a tremendous voice and an awesome stage presence that engages everyone in the room...for G-d's sake, SEE HER!!!"
-Russ Agdern, NYC Musician

"Intimate and intelligent, inspiring and i-opening"
Stanford Coffee House Shows
-Rohan Radhakrishna

"Jenn Lindsay. Songs of poems and wise words. Her songs are as thought provoking as a painting. Music with a good melody and a good Moral. Here is a girl that doesn't follow the 'in crowd.' She isn't afraid to be different and that's proven in her art and music."
-Colleen Purcell, 11 years old.

holy folksinging, batman!!
Jenn played at a house concert with Gina Young and Jolie Rickman and her set was really intimate, intelligent, and fun. I never knew a songwriter who can make you laugh and also make you really really think about your life. Thanks.

Elizabeth Stark, author of Shy Girl

awesome in NYC
Jenn Lindsay is an important and inspiring new voice on the music scene. Her lyrics are original and either funny or moving, often both. She's documenting the artist's life in New York City in these strange times, and she does it really well. I'm a huge fan!

Jenn Lindsay's got four-billion dollars right there in her soul. She electrifies the room, giving a priceless performance by sending currents of truth and razor-sharp wit coursing through the listener via distinctively fresh melodies and pipes that reach lofty highs as effortlessly as they caress sexy lows.

when i started listening to jenn i didn't know what i was in for, but a veritable tsunami of the best writing i've heard in a good spell, which is to be taken as a compliment, given that i am an english major, and that's my job description. to appreciate good writing. bravo bravo i love good words...
