Leaving Marshall St.
A gifted vocalist and masterful songwriter, Jen Sygit, has a golden ear and a deft touch on guitar. Jen's smooth, sultry voice plays sweet and true across broad range and brings just the right timbre to traditional ballads, acoustic blues, torch songs, country music or light hearted little ditties. To supplement her solid acoustic guitar playing, Jen often turns to her open back banjo or soprano ukulele to provide lighter harmonies to blend with her vocals. A countrified girl with a generous heart, Jen's songwriting is personal and heartfelt, but always expressed with a universal appeal, whether she writes about the country roads of her childhood or watching families sending their sons and daughters off to war. A regional touring artist based out of Michigan, Jen's sophomore release (and first release on Earthwork Music) entitled Leaving Marshall St. Is a classic depiction of rural America that features many of Michigan's top songwriters and instrumentalists.
