About Jen Chapin

Jen Chapin's music is jazz-tinged, urban folk story songs that search for community and shared meaning, powered by the funk, soul, and improvisation of the city. Jazz Times has called her a “first rate storyteller,” and the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel lauds her as as “smart, observant, lyrically deft, politically aware, and emotionally intuitive.” Jen has been honored by the USA Songwriting Competition, has appeared on stage with Bruce Springsteen, and has opened for Bruce Hornsby and the Neville Brothers.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
