Biography

Singer/Songwriter Jennifer Knapp released much anticipated new album Letting Go on May 11th, 2010. This is the first album of new music from Jennifer in 9 years and is released on her own independent record label, Graylin Records.

On another continent, some 9000 miles from the United States, is a corner of the earth where there is no Internet, no electricity, no telephone. From wherever you stand, you see red dirt and sky, well-adapted wildlife, rock piles next to dirt roads that seem to go on and on forever. Desolate but not empty, the Australian outback offers people the chance to revel in the open space and solitary oneness this striking terrain provides. Had you traveled that same path years ago, you may have passed Jennifer Knapp along the way, a Grammy nominated, Dove Award winning artist, who was happy to let go of all the success she had to live a very different kind of life traveling to the most remote corners of Australia, looking to reclaim a part of herself she felt she lost in all the excitement of her accomplishments.

And then one day she decided to come back.

Before you start with any Eddie and the Cruisers comparisons, please note that Jennifer didn’t fake her own demise. She just decided to take a break, though at the time, she wasn’t sure she’d ever return. Considering Jennifer has over sold over 1 million records, spent years successfully playing to sold out audiences and had a considerable fan base, the choice wasn’t an easy one but definitely necessary.

    at the first listen, she made me think to Dire Strait & Amy MacDonald.

    I am rather sad that her album "Lay it Down" isn't on Spotify, though. It's my favorite, and though I own the album and can listen to it at home, I rely on Spotify for my listening needs at work! Come on, Spotify, what's your problem?

    Glad to finally see so much positive energy on this shoutbox! Personally, I love Jennifer Knapp's music -- have since I was a teen -- and her latest album is one of her best yet! Really, that's all that matters, since her personal life isn't our business.

    Jesus designed each and every one of us. He made some of us gay, but HE created us that way! You are such an inspiration to me! :}

    <3 her. Always have always will. Thanks be to God that my flaws are not fodder for public dissection. What Jen does is between her and God and won't change that I love her and her music and that she is my sister in Christ.

    I liked her old music, some of it was really inspirational. The last album she released on Gotee Records was a bit vague to me. It's the previous albums that I thought were really good.

    bit of a shame that this shout box has very little to do with this girl's music.. i'd never heard of her til today, just stumbled across this 'discussion'.. so i'll add my thoughts to the mix and in doing so apologise for not actually commenting on her music.. with regards to her sexuality - wherever we stand on the issue - perhaps we need to go read some Matthew 7:5 and in the mean time perhaps consider 'love' becoming our default reaction..

    If Christ still love You, Me too... but read John 8:31-59

    hey, does anyone know why all Jennifer's older songs are no longer available here at last.fm? I was wanting to share Martyrs and Thieves with a friend, and it's no longer available.

    Ugh, can't read this page. Makes me too angry. I hope everyone who follows old testament laws also makes sure not to do any other evil stuff like wearing cloth of mixed fibers or shaving beards.

    Faith is all about hell? That is awful. Either way, I wouldn't take spiritual advice from someone whose last.fm avatar looks sinister and ungodly.

    Sorry to say that the defilement that Bible talks about when you engage in sexual intercourse with a person of your own sex is not understood by more "so called" christians. The spiritual emptiness that you will feel will only grow worse in time. Eventually hell is the only place you'll be able to express your so called Love for your own sex. sorry but God said it so I believe that's what Faith is all about..

    Ive love her music for a long time. Im so proud of her for coming out while still being a christian artist. My wife and I came out to the christian community and it was brutal and hard all the backlash we got from them. But we stood our ground and stood out Faith and now things are working out for the better. I wish her and her partner the best of luck. keep up the great music and work. Her new album is AMAZING!!! Totally out of the water great. <3
