Bluesy, earthy and strong female singer/songwriter
Jen Porter is an acclaimed Chicago singer, songwriter, musician & performer.
Growing up with parents who inspired people in the pews and around the campfire, Jen has stoked a fire in the bellies of thousands of fans with her irreverence, passion, and strong smoky voice.
While she spends most of her time performing as an international piano bar entertainer throughout the Caribbean and Europe, as well as entertaining around her hometown of Chicago, Jen has been steadily cutting original albums and building a following for her own music for more than 2 decades. Jen used to enjoy residencies with her talented group of backing musicians, fondly known as The Most Fabulous Band , at such prestigious places as Navy Pier, the John Hancock Building and US Cellular Field in Chicago. She was voted Chicago's favorite local musician by readers of the Chicago Free Press and enjoyed performing multiple times in Chicago's LGBT Pride Parade. She has also been honored to be performing the US (and sometimes Canadian) National Anthems as well as occasionally performing God Bless America, for the Chicago White Sox since 2007.
For about a decade she has been sharing her talents around the globe in international cities such as Amsterdam and Oslo, as well as in enviable vacation destinations such as Gran Canaria, the British Virgin Islands and the Dutch West Indies, to name a few. Jen spends two thirds of her time entertaining abroad annually.
