Biography

During Jen’s teenage years, she began composing songs and, like every teenager, singing along with her favourite musicians. Though her appreciation and love for music never subsided, Jen did not actively compose again for several years. Her desire to create was rekindled after receiving her first left-handed guitar for a birthday gift.

Things moved rapidly after that—her self-taught guitar style began to take shape and led to a desire to produce her own demo record. “When I was introduced to the guitar, that really opened up a whole new world for me, and became my passion,” she recalls. Inspired by the sounds of artists like Tom Waits and Bob Dylan, Jen spent hours in her spare bedroom-turned- recording studio creating her first album. “Most of the songs were written during the recording process,” Jen recalls. “I had originally written five or six songs, most of which were scrapped and replaced with new ones.” With the writing of each song, Jen’s songwriting style and her vision for the album began to evolve. With encouragement from music industry pros like Aaron Jacoves (former A&R vice-president of Virgin, A&M, and Mercury Records) and Derek Birkett (MD One Little Indian Records), it was soon realized that Jen would have more than just a demo on her hands.

Jen Gloeckner’s debut album Miles Away will be released through One Little Indian Records on 25th April 2005.

    I've been listening for over 3 years now. It wasn't until I signed up for last.fm that I knew she had come out with a new album! Well worth the wait, might I add. It's amazing how much she's evolved as a musician. :3

    I love Jen Gloeckner for years now... I tell all my friends about her! I wonder why she is not more famous. Maybe we should all call local radio stations or something...

    unfortunately, her latest album has not been uploaded yet, and it is really a masterpiece, showing how much musical development, discipline, and insight went into it... it is called mouth of mars and it is one of the best records of this year...

    truly inspired and inspiring, jen's music has a dark, neo-folk quality married to post rock ambience in a seamless, oh-so-natural way, a more focused and intimate ani, a more ambitious and thoughtout arrangement and accompaniment than normally expected from this unique combination of styles... simply put: true genius, a laura nyro of our dark times...
