In the rugged landscape of Flin Flon, Manitoba, there are two kinds of people: hockey players and singers. Though she is well known for her goalie skills, Jennifer Hanson's voice is what people remember about her.
The youngest of seven children, Jennifer learned to love 30's and 40's era standards at her father Bill's knee. In order to get just a little attention in the midst of all those kids, she began singing them for anyone who would listen around 1972, and then after her short, but throat blistering career in rock ’n’ roll, actually got paid to sing the really good stuff around 1993.
Jennifer's reputation for great vocal chops and notoriety for countless public appearances singing national anthems at NHL games, and touring the country with her band, began to attract the attention of a new audience among jazz fans.
