Sometimes traditional, sometimes contemporary, always imbued with a raw honesty, Lansing based Independent Music Award winning songwriter Jen Sygit wields a rare and powerful talent that seems equally comfortable performing ethereal folk tunes, crooning sultry swing numbers or soulfully belting gritty alt country ballads.  An accomplished multi-instrumentalist who isn’t afraid to test boundaries and cross genres, Jen’s eclectic musical style draws the listener in and holds them captivated.  Her poignant lyrics tinged with a delicate melancholy, reveal an oft-overlooked beauty to life’s mundane struggles while offering the occasional glimpse into the plight of a modern day troubadour.

Jen has released four solo albums with her latest “It’s About Time” -produced by Sygit’s long time friend and collaborator Dominic John Davis (bassist to Jack White, Buddy Miller, Joshua Davis) and featuring guest appearances from Luther Dickinson, Colin Linden, The McCrary Sisters and Rachael Davis- revealing a depth and maturity to Sygit’s ability as both songwriter and performer.

Since it’s release in Oct. 2018, “It’s About Time” won Best Americana Song at the Independent Music Awards (NYC) for the title track “It’s About Time”, was nominated for two Jammie awards for Best Americana/Roots Album and Album of the Year (WYCE Grand Rapids, MI) and was ranked #2 on John Bommarito’s annual top 100 albums of the year list (107.1 fm Ann Arbor, MI).  The official music video for Jen’s song “Love is Wild” also won an IMA Vox POP Fan Favorite Award (NYC) for Best Director of a Music Video- an award Jen shares with the director Michael McCallum of Rebel Pictures.

In addition to her solo career, Jen is also one third of the all-female string band Stella! and is a veteran back up singer/session vocalist having appeared on over 50 albums.  Besides regionally touring and playing shows, Jen was the weekly radio show of “Eclecticana” (WLNZ 89.7fm Lansing, MI) for 10 years, retiring during the pandemic.
