Jennifer Gibson began her solo career in 1991 as "a rare gem that comes already polished" (Walt Grealis of RPM). She had already taken turns with two bands - Petticoat Junction (Edmonton's first all-girl band) and the Cranky Brats - which provided the polish for Jennifer's solo style. Most compelling in her musical style is the honesty in her lyrics - sometimes raw and scathing, sometimes light and liberating.
She explores themes of independence, frustration, anger, love and clarity. Jennifer has played the festival circuit, including the Winnipeg Folk Festival and Alberta's North Country Fair as well as our own. She's opened for the likes of Tom Russell, Valdy and Cheryl Wheeler and was a part of Tom Jackson's Huron Carole in 1994. As a boost from her peers, she received the Alberta Recording Industry Association Award for most promising artist. She has two CDs; her latest, entitled Be The Woman, is filled with heart-breaking honesty.
