The daughter of an infantry officer and a mother who studied and performed opera, Jennie Walker was motivated by her mother’s passion for songwriting, singing, and performing; a passion which would become the driving force for Jennie’s musical journey. They would write songs together while Jennie was a teen, setting the stage for this moment – the release of her album, "Night Flight to London".
Now a veteran performer, Jennie Walker builds a mosaic of life's questions based on her experiences; evoking images of romance and passion. She has performed for international notables, including Nelson Mandela's wife, Graça Machel, in Mozambique, and the Rockefeller family. Jennie was born on Ft. Hood, Texas and currently resides in New York City.
Co-writing with Tommy Faragher, Grammy Nominee and 12-time platinum selling producer with a internationally known body of work (Taylor Dayne, Elvis Costello, Robbie Nevil, Keli Price, Brenda K Starr, O’Jays, Hall and Oats, Eternal, Bardot and the TV show GLEE), Jennie presents 12 wonderfully executed songs, which reveal her luxuriantly smooth voice and resonate in songs which are intrigues of power, foreboding and fatalistic journeys through love, relationships, and the highs and lows of life.
Jennie is releasing her much anticipated album on October 3, 2011, after wining the British Airways Face of Opportunity Contest in America. The airline is supporting the release with six months of infight audio play in the Easy Listening section, with all 12 songs from the album.
When not in the studio, Jennie is active in the music industry and in non-profit and charity fundraising endeavors, in addition to her workload as an actor and voice-over artist. She is a member of the prestigious Artists Against Hunger & Poverty Program of WHY (World Hunger Year), and has made a personal pledge to ensure all of her music performances and music business activities have a charitable component, which allows her to give back to the community.
Her advocacy efforts have seen her commit her seemingly unlimited energy as a staff member of organizations like The Carter Center in Atlanta, founded by former President Jimmy Carter, The Synergos Institute, founded by David Rockefeller’s daughter Peggy Dulany, and Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Maintaining her commitment to be an advocate for important societal issues, Jennie will be donating a percentage of the proceeds of her album to WhyHunger, The Carter Center, Columbus State University, Margot Fonteyn Academy of Ballet, and The Synergos Institute.
