Jennifer Kingwell is a musician and performer of delicious contrasts – a genre-blending diviner of punk ukulele anthems to lush solo piano compositions, cabaret torch songs to epic alt-pop tracks.
Described as ‘dark, dazzling…. a formidable powerhouse’ (Herald Sun) and ‘equal parts Kate Bush and Sergei Rachmaninov… a music theory case study with punk rock attitude’ (Skylashes) in possession of a ‘dynamite voice’ (T-squat), Jennifer has performed alongside cult visionaries such as The Dresden Dolls, Tim Minchin and John Cameron Mitchell on both national and international tours and is establishing herself as a rising force among Melbourne’s thriving music and performing arts scene.
Whether solo, with her ‘virtuosic’ band (Melbourne. Arts. Fashion) The Garland Thugs, or in collaborations such as with avant-garde ensemble Silo String Quartet, Jennifer’s live shows are a thrilling pleasure for both eyes and ears, ‘intoxicating’ (The Advertiser) and ‘captivating’ (Rip It Up) audiences across the globe.
