The youngest of seven children, jazz vocalist Jennifer Hanson learned to love ’30s- and ’40s-era standards at her father’s knee, if only to get just a little attention in the midst of all those kids. In 1972, she began singing for anyone who would listen. After a short but throat-blistering career in rock ’n’ roll, Jennifer moved on to jazz.
Her torchy, seductive vocal style is a nod to icons like Rosemary Clooney, Julie London, and Linda Rondstadt. Her repertoire runs the gamut from the jazz standard songbook and torchy heartbreakers to a large selection of blues, rock, and R&B (she also knows the anthems of at least 10 countries, just in case). She is excited to be living back in Winnipeg and eats at Sals as often as possible.
