Jennifer’s journey as a recording artist began in 2004 with the underground success of her first album, HeavyElectroMagneticSoularPoeticJungleHop. Songs like the title track “Heavy” with its accompanying artfully futuristic video, broke through the national underground scene making Jennifer a notable force in her field. In 2007 she learned the hard way about industry rule #4080 and was unable to release her sophomore album Painting on Wax. In spite of the release issues project was met yet with critical acclaim from publications like the Chicago Tribune, SFChronicle, URB, XLR8R and more. While the album in completion never saw the light of day, songs like Ghetto International, Let the Drum Moan and Chasing the Sun made their way to independent radio and mixshows around the world.
