Jenny Leigh (VIP)

Jenny Leigh's sound is an electric combination of the singer's city girl lifestyle and country girl background, and her songs are fused with hints of soul and pop. Inspired by relationships, ups and downs, and lessons learned along the way, her original heart-felt lyrics paired with her unforgettable voice ring clear and true.

After releasing her 4-track demo in 2009, her song "Set Me Free" fell into regular rotation almost instantly on Washington DC's WMZQ 98.7 and Baltimore's WPOC 93.1 radio. She was featured as Artist of the Month on WPOC 93.1 and the station sponsored a live performance during their Charm City Country Show to support the release.

Jenny recently released a music video for her single "Crossroads". Produced by Brian Stansfield and Wandering Hat productions in DC, it captures the fiery heart and soul of this liberating song. The video was recorded at Cue Studios in DC as part of Jenny's brand-new EP Falling Forward under platinum producer Jim Ebert. Falling Forward also includes the track "Break Free", co-written with Mark Bryan of Hootie in the Blowfish.
Not only has she been making a splash in the country world, spending a lot of time in Nashville working on new releases but has caught attention across other genres of music. She recently recorded vocals for the making of Under Armour’s commercial “Cam’s Night Out” with DJ Araabmuzik and has been working with local Baltimore hip hop artist, Jay Royale.

Artistically, Jenny draws inspiration from a wide variety of female performers: Carrie Underwood and Martina McBride vocally, Miranda Lambert and Taylor Swift lyrically, Sheryl Crow and Grace Potter musically. You’ll find that her sound takes country music to a whole new level with a delicious edge!

As a musician, Jenny's goal is simple: to move people through music. "There's no feeling that compares to hearing a song, letting it in, letting go, and dancing with no reservations!" says Jenny. "That's a gift that I want to give music lovers everywhere.
