International Singer Songwriter Jen de Ness is a highly skilled, soulful performer who gives her all at every show, be it outdoor festivals or intimate clubs Jen “knows how to entertain an audience” (Crazy Coqs London) and from the moment this “accomplished performer” steps on stage her “distinct style is soothing and has the audience relaxing into the comfortable atmosphere she creates.”(Glam Adelaide) Jen is often joined by her husband and fellow composer Bill Atkinson on guitar in various bands including Jen de Ness Sextet and de Ness Nu Vox.
Previous performances have received rave reviews from Broadway World Review who declared their shows to be “Top Quality Cabaret!” with “ excellent song writing, magnificent singing and storytelling and very fine guitar playing” , Australian Theatre Guide describing it as “both polished and intimate”, Glam Adelaide giving 4.5 Stars and Pheasantry Club in London saying Jen’s performance was “sultry, scintillating, and completely mesmerising."
Jen and Bill joined forces again this year to present their original Musical "Green Tile Tango" for Perth Fringe where Weekendnotes declared that Jen's performance was " Engaging, relaxed and humorous, and (that she) had the audience in the palm of her metaphorical Parisian evening gloves... even 'dancing on the table' at one point." declaring Jen to be "A natural between-songs 'chatter' and seasoned performer, having toured nationally and internationally, (who) warmly connected with the audience.", noting "the sold out crowd was lapping it up and even getting involved..." and concluding that this "lighthearted show with love-tinged jazz vocals and sassy moves should hit the spot and soothe the heart."
“ Hopefully this accomplished performer will return to Adelaide soon. ★★★★ 1/2" GLAM ADELAIDE, 2016
