 Jenn Cristy
Singer/songwriter Jenn Cristy launched into the music scene in 2003, wowing listeners
from the start with an old-school rock 'n roll style with a decidedly contemporary flair. Her piano-driven melodies are supported by a dynamic voice and vibrant stage presence that gets audiences on their feet -- and leaves them wanting more. Jenn's memorable lyrics, incomparable piano skills and straight-to-the-heart musical themes are further testament
to her years of writing, recording and performing.
