“I make music because I love it!” says Jennifer Ramsey, and it shows. Jennifer is an engaging performer, backing her full-bodied vocals with ukulele or guitar.

Her versatility extends beyond her wide v
ocal range and multiple instruments to the vast selection of covers she performs, running the gamut from folk to rock, alternative to pop, rockabilly to roots, all with a distinct southern flair.

“I just sing and play songs I love - and avoid all other limits.” This includes putting her own spin on covers, including a reggae version of Aha’s Take On Me, rockabilly Danny Boy, and ukulele-driven Dog Days.

Here Jennifer is performing a solo cover of the week, Exes and Ohs by Elle King:

Jennifer thrives on audience energy, from intimate gatherings to large crowds. She enjoys interacting with audience members, presenting “an engaging, high-energy performance.”

She has performed at festivals, bars, restaurants, private parties, weddings, benefits, conventions, musicals, and -back in her Georgia days- sang the national anthem for fans of the Macon Braves.

Jennifer is not only a talented musician, but also an absolute professional, whether working solo, or as part of the band, Face-N-Time.

Face-N-Time features Jennifer on vocals, rhythm guitar, sax, and ukulele, along with Michael Brown on vocals and guitar, Willie Kohut on lead guitar, James Wayman on vocals and bass, and Lindy Alo on percussion.  

Jennifer (and her guitars, ukulele, saxophone, harmonicas and sound system) are available for your upcoming event.  Get to know Jennifer, take a listen for yourself, and contact her today!




Excited to Open for Michelle Malone Tonight 

I am super excited about a great opportunity to open for National Recording artist Michelle Malone tonight at Grassroots in Barrington.

According to Guitar World, Michelle is “equal parts badass guitar slinger and sweet songstress”

From her website "Her mastery of guitar, along with her trademark voice and songwriting skills,have earned her 3x Best Female vocalist, Best Acoustic Guitarist, Album of the year, and 2 grammy ballot appearances (Best Contemporary Blues 2006, Best Americana 2009)."

I'm excited to be able to play a little to warm up the crowd for what should be a great show. There is a $20 cover. Check out Michelle's web page for more information on her music, tour and merchandise.

Great opportunity to sing our National Anthem 

Had great fun in Beloit June 3rd singing the National Anthem at the start of a Beloit Snappers minor league game. It was great weather, a nice crowd and overall good times with the cheese heads in Wisconsin. Looking forward to singing God Bless America at the Kane County Cougars game on Sunday July 17th.
