About

Singer/Songwriter Jenn Russell hails originally from the seaside city of Bathurst, New Brunswick. Based in Fredericton now, she has been travelling around the Maritimes this spring and summer with her 9-piece band showcasing her Swingin’ Jazz and Jump Blues tunes from her CD “Double Kiss”.  She has some of Fredericton’s finest musicians backing her up including Troy McLaggan on guitar and Kelly Waterhouse on sax. Classically trained in piano, and playing jazz and blues on her sax since her teens, Jenn Russell has a well-rounded approach to putting together a collection of up-beat danceable tunes. Her music and songwriting have been influenced by many artists and genres, which she has blended into her own style of sultry and at times tongue and cheek music. She belts out her fun and playful tunes “in that 40’s good-time style” (Bob Mersereau – CBC).  You will love Jenn Russell’s onstage energy and her  Big Band sound, including a full horn section which has garnered her a following of ballroom, swing and blues dancers, and if you’re not a dancer, her music sure to keep your toes tapping!
