“Female blues guitarists have long been an important part of the Blues-Rock world. You only have to think of ladies like Ana Popovic, Bonnie Raitt or Joanne Shaw Taylor to understand what I mean. And now we can also add Jennifer Lyn & The Groove Revival to that list.”
— Peter Marinus, Blues Magazine
The album Badlands, from North Dakota Blues-Rock artist Jennifer Lyn, couldn’t come at a better time. As a new generation takes the reins, keeping Blues-based music alive is needed more than ever to remind us of our own history and preserve the love of this genre for generations to come.
As a songwriter, recording artist, and musician with a growing social media following worldwide supporting the music she makes with her band Jennifer Lyn & The Groove Revival, she’s focused on leaving a positive impact with her Blues-based music.
Her debut album I’m All Wrong for You Baby (released October 2016) touched on her musical diversity with songs ranging from traditional Blues, Rock, and ballads with gospel undertones.
