Fifteen-time ASCAPlu$ Award Winner Jennifer Vazquez is an infectious triple threat: inspirational singer/songwriter, vibrant musician and illustrious performer. Her sound and energy resonates three fold with pop, folk-rock and country audiences worldwide. Two of her songs – including her new single “Getting Out Of My Own Way,” produced by Ron Zabrocki – are featured in the hit HBO comedy, “Sleeping With The Fishes,” starring Golden Globe Nominee, Gina Rodriguez (CW’s “Jane the Virgin”), along with Ana Ortiz (“Ugly Betty”/”Devious Maids”).
There is no question the tie that binds Jennifer to her fans is unbreakable. The internal rhythms and introspective soul searching of her songs provide an instant a-ha moment with every person that crosses her path. “She knows how to convey true passion in her songs so the listener cannot only hear it, but feel it as well, ” said Stephanie Younk of GO-DIY Records. Her audience is given individual attention, rendering their experience intimate and mesmerizing, and resulting in an everlasting kinship.
Born and raised in The Bronx, with a solid balance of book and street smarts, Jennifer’s alluring and dynamic personality has brought about much success while on the road touring as a solo artist on both coasts. With lyrical and musical sprinkles of Linda Perry, Patty Griffin and Jennifer Nettles (to name a few), Jen's influences and inspirations started with those of Donna Summer, Billy Joel and Joni Mitchell. Jennifer had some unconventional schooling during a seven year residence in Los Angeles when she honed and strengthened her skills performing on the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica. Her unstoppable attitude, along with her vulnerability, has provided a continuum of opportunity in her career. Upon Jennifer’s return to NY, she formed a duo with Jason Waters called “Stilettos-n-Steel." They toured the East Coast from 2013 - 2014, including a performance at SXSW and the experience of opening for the Rochester Razor Sharks. In 2014, Jen returned to her solo roots.
Embarking on a new chapter with the help of award winning directors, Nicole Gomez Fisher and Neem Basha, Jennifer shot a music video for “Getting Out Of My Own Way,” her words and music telling a captivating and unforgettable story on the screen.
Jennifer's successes, including her many ASCAPlu$ Awards and her four “Honorable Mentions” from the prestigious Billboard Contest, have filled her with gratitude. She gives back to her community through "Musicians On Call," a volunteer program that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities.
“Dreams only come true when you begin to get out of your own way and allow the natural flow of life to take over.” Jennifer Vazquez
