jennifer tefft band

Jennifer Tefft is a fired up, energizing presence who pulls earthy music from its roots and breathes fresh, soulful, rock and roll life into them. Her music combines intense rhythms with melancholy textures and haunting vocals that wind easily from darkly ethereal to outspoken, creating her own brand of Gritty-Lush Alternative Rock.

After getting her start playing for change in the subway tunnels and streets of Cambridge, MA, Tefft has gone on to release four CDs on her own Gypsy Spin Music label. Jennifer’s releases have received critical acclaim such as a Boston Music Award nomination for Best Female Vocalist, and a “Boston’s Best Unsigned Band nod by local press. Shift was awarded “Best Alternative Album” by the Just Plain Folks association in Hollywood, CA. Songs from all 4 releases have been and continue to be used on National Television shows such as CSI, MTV, Stargate Universe, One Life To Live, The Young & The Restless and many others.

The past few years have seen the release of several new singles! The first of these, “All of These Crimes” was used extensively on daytime TV. The second, “Breathe” spent 4 weeks in the top 5 on WZLX’s Boston Emissions Local Top 5 list and was signed to an exclusive publishing deal. The next single, “Madame Catastrophe” was named 1st Runner Up in the Rock N Reel Music Video Competition.

Most recently Jennifer's song "Breathe" was awarded "Best Song" in the 2014 Rock and Reel competition. She was also nominated for 5 Local Music Awards by WMRC and the local nominating committee, and brought home the "Best Original Album" award for Time Is A Thief!

And on October 5, 2014, Jennifer was invited by the New England Patriots to sing the National Anthem at Gillette Stadium before a crowd of 68,000 people prior to the Patriots vs. Bengals game! Based on that performance, Jennifer was then invited to again sing the National Anthem, this time at TD Garden in Boston before the Bruins game on Tuesday October 28th!

Jennifer is currently working on material in preparation for recording a new CD in the next year. As time and life constantly move and change, so too does Jennifer’s music. She is exploring new sounds, new ideas and collaborating with other new artists. What is emerging is fresh, insightful and exciting!

Jennifer and her band have toured extensively, sharing the stage with bands like Aerosmith, Warrant, Quiet Riot, and many others, and have played festivals such as SXSW, NEMO, Philadelphia Music Conference and many more.

The intensity and energy of the live show, whether it be a full band performance or a more intimate acoustic gig, often takes people by surprise and when people leave a Jennifer Tefft show, they are already making plans to come back!
