Jennifer Gammill exploded onto the local jazz scene with her debut at Havana Nights Jazz Club in 2013. Since then, she has continued to grace local stages with her soothing vocals and scintillating flute, performing with live trio and quartet at the 2019 Port Warwick Jazz on the Square series, the 2016 Winter Blues Jazz Fest, a soloist with the Jae Sinnett trio, Town Center in Virginia Beach, Triangle in Williamsburg, Warwick Forest, Jamestown Settlement, Pearl Club, and the Freight Shed in Yorktown in 2016 and 2018 as part of the Cabin Fever series.
As a soloist, Jennifer can also be heard singing big band classics at Gershwin's in downtown Norfolk, is regularly hired for private parties, and has been a solo performer on Beach Street USA/Live! on Atlantic since 2013.
Her musical journey has brought her through contemporary worship music, singer-songwriter, and pop styles, but since she settled into jazz, has found a perfect fit and passion for the rest of her life. In her most recent album Heart, Soul & Fire, Jennifer combines her singer-songwriter and jazz sensibilities for a beautiful recording backed by the Jae Sinnett trio.
Her performing capacities are solo with background tracks with live vocals and flute, solo piano and voice, duo with Carl Olson on piano (specializing in 20's/stride style), jazz trio or quartet, and "crossover" jazz band featuring newer, more recognizable songs and a generous helping of originals.
A new program features Jennifer using piano, flute, voice, beatboxing, and looping all in one energetic solo show! Ask for more details.
Jennifer is excited to perform on more stages in Hampton Roads in 2020 and beyond and hopes to expand to the greater Virginia and North Carolina areas. She also spends her time teaching and performing with Arts for Learning, the Young Audiences Affiliate of Virginia, and being mom to her three wonderful children.
