Jennifer Greer sings sweetly sensual songs to Mr. Media!

Jennifer Greer is a self-taught, detail-obsessed singer/songwriter/pianist who has been singing since she was a little girl. She joins Mr. Media to talk about her new CD, Fist Full of Stars.

Growing up in a suburb near New York City, poetry was her first love and artistic medium. At 25 she began to write music, being drawn to the piano like a magnet. Jennifer's distinctive voice-which soars from earthy and sensual to sweetly lush-is showcased in her last album the Apiary, which critics have called "stunning."

Jennifer's songs push the boundaries of pop, by blending jazz, funk and classical tone poem. Her songs tend to be about outer rather than inner subjects, such as stories in the news, characters from books, as well as personal experience.

She won the WRSI singer/songwriter contest in 2001, is a Winner for Best Adult Alternative CD 2005 from the Muse's Muse and won "best unsigned pop artist" from Verbicide magazine in 2008.
