BIOGRAPHY
Jenna Rae Jacobson is clear about her intentions when it comes to creativity. “I want to exploit the connection between the audio and visual worlds, it’s something that has been under-utilized for far too long.” As a musician, DJ, video director, photographer, and installation artist, one has a hard time finding someone more appropriate for this task.

As DJ Jenna J her main inspiration comes from nights spent partying in gay clubs and her sets are comprised of the hottest electro and progressive house tracks keeping the crowd on their feet all night.

Musically, a refreshing trip-hop sound resonates from her work as Jenna sets herself apart from many contemporary artists and calls Bjork and Portishead her major influences of the moment. One interesting description of her music likened it to “Listening to music when you’re half asleep and the T.V. was left on or the phone is ringing and you are slipping in and out of odd daydreams.” This description, although odd, seems to fit the subconscious type feel to her music.

Jenna first picked up a guitar when she was nine after her parents refused to have a drum set in the house (that eventually changed) and started producing, playing, and performing her own music at 17. Since then she has gone on to produce two demo CDs, play Calgary Pride 2006, win Calgary Urban Vibe’s Battle of the Bands, be a finalist in the Calgary Folk Fest song writing competition, and play numerous shows in Calgary and Vancouver. Currently in the middle of a Bachelors Degree In Media Arts from Emily Carr University in Vancouver British Columbia, Jenna has also completed a audio engineering and music production program, and is a certified Pro-Tools operator. She is presently working on a new CD and Short Video due out in early 2010, Djing in Vancouver, and completing her degree.
