If you haven't heard rave reviews of Jocelyn Scofield, you will. She has been compared to such current female artists as Fiona Apple and Aimee Mann and such old favorites as Karen Carpenter, and Helen Reddy. With her clear voice, infectious smile and quick wit, Jocelyn has quickly charmed audience members throughout California, Illinois, and Michigan.
At nineteen, Jocelyn recorded and independently distributed her first release, "Painted Pictures,” which contained eight original songs. She has performed in venues such as the renovated Soldier Field, Grant Park Music Festival, and Navy Pier. She was also the voice of choice for emerging songwriters at Summer Song Records, Inc. After deciding to take her career forward, she moved from Chicago to Los Angeles where Jocelyn is now aggressively pursuing a career as a full-time singer/songwriter. Never one to wait for life to happen, upon arriving in Los Angeles she immediately started performing. Because of her growing fan base, booking agents throughout Los Angeles are beginning to pursue her. Since her move, Jocelyn has been seen giving her trademark heart-felt, witty, and spontaneous performances at Genghis Cohen, Room 5, The Rainbow, Casey’s, Hallenbeck’s, and Highland Grounds. Her song Revenge recently caught the ear of Tee-M, a successful singer/songwriter in Los Angeles and was featured on Tee-M's Unsigned Music Show.
Jocelyn has just finished her new album, This Life, which was released on November 19 and is exclusively available through her website. Currently she is on a Coast to Coast Humanity Tour in support of the Habitat for Humanity’s Operation Home Delivery. Over two and a half months, Jocelyn will perform in more than 50 cities in 35 states. $2 from every CD and donations collected during the shows will go to assist in the Hurricane Relief Effort.
