ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jennifer Vazquez’s professional music career may have started in her early twenties; but if you ask her family, they will tell you all about Jennifer’s passion for music, theater and dance from the time she was a few years old. Jennifer’s mother remembers her singing all around the house and jumping on her brother and sister’s beds to wake them up as she made up songs and danced for them. “It was her way of sharing her love with them.”

In Jennifer’s mid twenties, she moved to LA and hits the streets! She busked in Hollywood, Santa Monica and Venice Beach regulary to hone her songwriting and performance skills, build a fan base and make a living doing her passion, writing songs and performing them live. Whether Jen was performing in front of three people or to an auditorium of thousands, she gave every audience the same attention; that is what sets her apart from the thousands of other performers; definitely a “diamond in the LA sand.” Indie-Music.com says it best as a reviewer wrote, “There is something about this woman that makes you like her, not just as a singer, but as a person. She has the charisma that makes a star.”

Jennifer’s passion to connect to others through words and music has earned her accolades from much of the music industry; including the prestigious Billboard Contest, where four of her songs from her album, Bend, have been recognized for her hit songwriting skills. Music Connection named her one of the Hot 100 Unsigned Artists and LAMA nominated her album, Bend, for Triple A Album of the year. She has also been an ASCAPlu$ Award winner for the past twelve years. What sparked Jennifer’s passion? As Jennifer remenises, “I remember performing in my first dance recital with Miss Elaine’s Dance Company when I was three, which was held at Lehman College in The Bronx. There were about eight of us little girls on a huge stage wearing Raggedy Ann costumes, dancing to a song about Raggedy Ann. The only thing I remember was feeling this immediate surge of utter fear the moment before the number began, but then, once it started, I felt this absolute calm inside, like nothing else mattered or existed in the whole world. That’s what sparked this deep rooted need to share my heart with other people.”

Over the past few years, Jennifer chose to return to her roots in The Bronx. Since then, she has been a musical guest on BronxNets’ Shows “Open” and “The Rhythms Of New York”. She has also appeared on Midday Arizona and Univision. In 2011, Jennifer won “Demo Tape”, a singer, songwriter competition, Kenton Magazine had her as their 2011 August Spotlight Artist, Hay House Radio featured her song, “Lone Pine” on Sound Wave (The Muse Behind The Music) and “USA Country 2011 – Saving Lives Through Free Music”, included that same song on their project. Jennifer also started the blog series, “365 Blogs To Finding Pinocchio A Home”, which started out being about her journey of finding one of her songs, “I Wanna Be Pinocchio”, which came out in July of 2012, a home in the TV and film world. The blog series is morphing, and is now focused on the steps she needs to take to successfully become a full time singer, songwriter and performer in today’s age of the music business. The common theme that comes up regularly in her blogging is this need to give back to the community and others without expecting anything in return. That said, Jennifer is a part of “Musicians on Call” and has taught art, dance and songwriting at “The Hollywood School House” and “Day Jams” while she resided in LA.

Jennifer continues to collaborate with producers, artists and songwriters all over and is excited to share new projects that are in the works! Keep coming back and visiting Jennifer’s site. Stay conected to her heartbeat and a journey worth taking!

Thomas R. Mueller

Unique Styling with Heart of Sarah - Soul of Jewel - Spirit of Joni
Her authentic and original voice and music echo the best of the best of the most soulful and spirited female singer-songwriters who blazed the trail she now follows. It is exciting to experience this CD and to share in the discovery of an artist who shares the destiny of some of my favorites, like Sarah McLachlan, Jewel and Joni Mitchell.

Very cool songs, I like the song bend. Nice melody.
I like this CD, I like how she mixes the melodies in her songs. Very cool beat in all songs.

Magnus

Next stop top of the charts?
"Bend" shows that J.V. is at a par or even better than most well-known singer/songwriters. The CD has a warm, gentle atmoshpere, and some songs with a massive hit potential, particularly the title track and "He's like strawberry milk".

Jennifer has received several "hottest unsigned" mentions. I think that this record may give her a "hottest signed"...

Dave Gutierrez

Music From An Artist Who Believes!
I totally agree with David Collette's review of this CD. It's honest and from the heart. You can only get music like this from an artist who totally believes in what they are doing...she's made a believer out of me. You must own it!

David Collette

Warm breath of honesty thaws pre-packaged musical Ice Age
Jennifer Vazquez, the Bronx girl who finds her voice in the plastic carnival that is Los Angeles. Bend is a dozen heart-warming confessions you whisper to your best friend over coffee. Refreshing honesty and sunlight in an era of canned mall music. Bend just a little more and own this CD.

Jennifer is just what we need!
Jennifer is a talent beyond all talents...because she sincerely believes in her songs, her lyrics and her music. I love her CD "Bend," especially on a day when I am looking to be at ease with life. Jennifer Vasquez's voice could sooth this un-peaceful earth right now if more people could hear her!
