About

Member of The Blues Hall of Fame ® and award-winning songwriter.

 

     Impassioned, soulful singer and songwriter Jenny Langer has shared the stage with such musical greats as Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks and Jack Pearson of Allman Brothers fame; Susan Tedeschi of the Tedeschi Trucks Band, Gov't Mule, The Nighthawks, Ron Holloway, and Jimmy Vivino from Late Night with Conan O’Brien. Part vamp and part glamour girl, she is all-commanding in her on-stage deliveries and becomes pure sorceress spellbinding audiences with her searing hot vocals. To quote from her sizzling seductive rendition of “Fever” -what a lovely way to burn.

     Langer lives Washington, DC, grew up in the California Bay Area, and is often mistaken as a native of New Orleans.  After graduating from Berklee College of Music, she co-founded the award-winning blues band Moonshine Society, touring the world bringing American roots music to intrigued audiences. 

 

      The band has won two Wammies (Best Blues Album, Best Blues Band), the International Blues Challenge (IBC- Best Self-Produced Album), hit #2 on the UK Blues Charts (IBBA), and spent 6 weeks as #1 on Blues Rock Album Radio Charts in (2019).

     She has been a member of The Ron Holloway Band since 2014, and in the midst of the 2020 pandemic, formed The Honey Larks- an all female roots trio- with her two best friends.  Fast forward to 2022, when she met producer John Wooler (Point Blank/Virgin), who connected her with guitarist Randy Jacobs.  A two day recording project quickly turned into an invitation to join The Boneshakers, ushering in a new era for the band as it celebrates 25 years since their first release.

 

She is also an Ambassador for Women Who Rock and Rent The Runway.
