A gifted vocalist and masterful songwriter, 2007 Detroit Music Award Nominee Jen Sygit has a golden ear and a deft touch on guitar. Her smooth, sultry voice brings just the right timbre to traditional ballads, acoustic blues, torch songs, country music or lighthearted folk tunes. To supplement her solid acoustic guitar playing, Jen often turns to her open back banjo or soprano ukulele performing mountain melodies and timeless jazz tunes further emphasizing her vocal dexterity. A countrified girl with a generous heart, Jen’s songwriting is personal and heartfelt, but always expressed with a universal appeal. Whether writing about the country roads of her childhood or about watching families send their sons and daughters off to war, Jen Sygit represents “the music of front porch America.”
Now, armed with her sophomore release Leaving Marshall St. (released on Earthwork Music in Sept. 2006) and four years of experience on the road, Jen has worked rooms both large and small. Available as a solo act or with her backing band “Spare Change”, Jen comfortably performs at house concerts, coffeehouses, theaters, festivals and concert series around her home state of Michigan and across the Midwest/ East Coast region. As host of the Tuesday Night Open Mic, a popular underground open mic held weekly at Dagwood Tavern in Lansing, MI, Jen has helped foster the rapidly growing community of musicians and songwriters located in and around mid-Michigan.
