Jen Miller
Dec 13 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

MNS Country Album Of The Year Winner Jen Miller grew up in Nova Scotia but found her voice and her path in Vancouver, BC. Jen grew up in a very musical family. Her grandfather was a fiddle player, her Dad a singer/songwriter and multi instrumentalist along with both of her uncles. Her older brothers also played and sang. At the age of 14 Jen learned her first 3 chords and with them wrote her very first song. At the age of 19 she found herself opening for a local band at the Rebbeca Cohn in Halifax.

In her mid 20’s something in the wind called her westward, so she sold off all her possessions, packed her bags, and left all but her guitar behind to head for Vancouver. After many years of soul searching, Jen discovered that music was what truly brought her happiness, and was no longer to be just a hobby. So, she started recording an album, and two years later released her debut record – “You and I” which can be found on Itunes and www.jenmiller.bandcamp.com

JEN MILLER is a name that you should get used to hearing around the Maritimes. This singer /songwriter and multi instrumentalist just returned to her home roots after spending many years on that other Coast. In Vancouver she recorded her debut Album “YOU And I”. This album shows heart, emotion, and honesty, giving the listener an insight into this artists spiritual journey through life , love and a longing for home. This album is easy to get caught in your head requiring listening, time and time again.
