Originally from New York City, Seattle has been her home since 1990. Jeanette began to compose music in the 80 s and began to develop what is uniquely her own style of music. "The kind of music I write is a reaction, I think, to the hectic lifestyle that is so much a part of New York City . In New York, there is so much noise." Her influences are those of David Lanz, Yanni, George Winson, Suzanne Cianni, Will Ackerman, Jim Brickman, and Narada Artists Eric Tingstad and Nancy Rumbel.
