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.
