Jen Chapin has been celebrated for writing "brilliant soulfully poetic urban folk music" (NPR) for over a decade, beginning with her debut, Open Wide, in 2002.  Nurtured in and around NYC by a large family of artists, writers, and musicians, Jen's "observant, lyrically deft, politically aware and emotionally intuitive" (Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel) songwriting features both her "extraordinary voice" (De krenten uit de pop, The Netherlands) and "astonishing jazz band" (popmatters), the combination of which has garnered her well-deserved praise, solidified by appearances on Late Nite with Conan O'Brien, NPR's Mountain Stage, WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour, WFUV's Sunday Breakfast with John Platt, Mary Sue Twohy's Folk Village and the Bob Edwards Show on Sirius Satellite.

As much as an artistic legacy, the roots of Jen's upbringing have inspired her "potent, jazzy, layered folk" (Newsday) songs and a lifetime of passionate activism, through ongoing work with WhyHunger (founded by her late father Harry Chapin), and other food justice groups. She has performed on stage with Bruce Springsteen, on bills with Aimee Mann, Bruce Hornsby, and The Neville Brothers, her rendition of Van Morrison's "Into The Mystic" was recently featured in an episode of the SyFy TV series "Defiance" and her song, "Go Away" honored by the USA Songwriting Competition.   Jen Chapin's new release Reckoning, produced and engineered by five-time GRAMMY¬© Winner Kevin Killen (U2, Elvis Costello, Kate Bush) is a new collection of urban folk/jazz/pop storytelling songs, reckoning with the challenge of balancing creative ambitions with the immediate demands of mothering small children, combined with a good dose of social commentary.
