Jen Ayers is a vocal dynamo with a throat of gold, pianist, songwriter and recording artist. She’s performed thousands of shows nationwide, fronting Seattle-based band Honey Tongue and played on bills with Jack Johnson, Dave Matthews, Tom Petty and Hall & Oates.
Her powerhouse vocals and electric stage performances have earned invitations to sing across the U.S., including the National Anthem at NBA/MLB games, Led Zeppelin for “Bonzo’s Celebration Day” (with members of Heart, REM, Pearl Jam) and “House of Thee Unholy” – Broadway-level burlesque at Seattle’s Triple Door.
Jen studied with nationally renowned vocal coaches Maestro David Kyle and Susan Carr to learn how to perfect a high rock scream without doing damage or losing her voice. These skills came in handy when she took on the challenge of channeling Steven Tyler in “Dream On,” an all-girl Aerosmith band.
Jen is a frequent guest singer in high-profile gigs across the Northwest and currently fronts Wild Rumours – A Fleetwood Mac experience and Custard Pie, featuring the music of Led Zeppelin.
Since 2012, Jen has also been performing at Teatro Zinzanni. First in “Return To Paradise,” which enabled her to dabble in the things she loves most: singing, acting and dancing. She even spun from a cirque cage while performing Honey Tongue’s original song “I Wanna Go.” Then, in “Be Italian” and “Hollywood And Vine,” she brought character of Donatella DiMarco to life – a feisty, Italian, New-Jersey born chanteuse.
She also collaborated with Zinzanni to develop "Big Top Rock: Dream On," a Rock ‘N Roll Family Show in which she played the role of the Blondie-esque Jenny Jupiter alongside the rest of her Dream On band members. And subsequently starred in "Big Top Rock: Rock This Way" as Donatella with an all-star band (Hans Teuber, Keith Lowe Igor Abuladze and Jose Martinez).
Jen’s following up her debut solo CD “Every Day Is A Parade,” with her first one-woman, musical story, “This Picture,” slated to hit the stage in 2022. She's currently recording a full-length album of original tunes for the project with Jeff Fielder at the producer helm to be released late 2021.
