Jenny LaJoye is a classically trained violinist-turned-pop/folk singer/songwriter from Hastings, MI, where she and her five siblings were raised by two professional music conductors. Between her parents' backgrounds in jazz and musical theater, her brother's career in folk music and blues, and her own love for percussion, guitar, and piano, Jenny's voice as a singer/songwriter was formed.
Jenny released her first EP, “We’ve Been That Way Before,” in 2014, which won the WYCE Jammie Award for Listener’s Choice, Album of the Year. During her last semester at Calvin College in 2015, she recorded and released her first full-length album, “Vapor.”
Jenny is currently living in Denver, CO, working on her Masters at the Iliff School of Theology. Her sophomore album, "Altars," will be available everywhere on February 23rd, 2018.
