About Jennifer Hartswick
Jennifer Hartswick is one of the most exciting performers in music today. She inspires audiences all over the world with her powerful voice and commanding trumpet playing. She exudes confidence and joy and brings her own refreshing spirit to the stage every time she performs. Jennifer’s music is honest, soulful and comes with a maturity far beyond her years.
Her latest album, True, released in 2007 on Rubber Jungle Records, is a lithe collection of lesser-heard jazz standards. The album glides effortlessly from the smooth, mellow tones of Gentle Rain and With Every Breath I Take to the up-tempo swing of That’s All & Nature Boy. Jennifer’s interpretations are always fresh and innovative, informed by a mix of youthful ambition and musical wisdom beyond her years.
Jennifer’s live performances are renowned as spontaneous, joyful and contagious. Her natural charisma and sincerity shines through, and each performance is a celebration of musical collaboration; the camaraderie between Jennifer and her band mates is always visible. And whether she is wailing on the trumpet or singing an intimate vocal solo, her performance is all part of a single seamless instrument, one that is played not only with astounding technical proficiency, but also with sensitivity, conviction and heart.
Born in Vermont into a musical family, Jennifer began playing music at the age of four. As a teenager she became infatuated with the sounds of Oscar Peterson, Clifford Brown and Ella Fitzgerald. She lived and studied in New York City before attending the Hartt School of Music in Hartford, CT, where she studied the intricacies of the jazz idiom with Nat Reeves, Steve Davis, Jackie McLean and many other prominent jazz artists.
At the age of 20, having already recorded on two albums with Trey Anastasio (Story of the Ghost, Phish, 1998, and One Man’s Trash, Trey Anastasio, 1998), Jennifer was asked to join Anastasio’s new band. She has been an integral part of the band for the last ten years touring internationally and sharing the stage and studio such legends as Carlos Santana, Dave Matthews, The Rolling Stones and Herbie Hancock. She has also appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night With Conan OBrien, Austin City Limits, and many more.
Jennifer performs regularly with jazz, gospel and rock ensembles around the country. The Jennifer Hartswick Band has completed a new record to be released in the Spring of 2011.
