Jen Chapin returns to the Cutting Room to perform tunes from her "lush" (Los Angeles Times) acclaimed new album Reckoning. Jen (on lead vocals and guitar) will be accompanied by her virtuosic Grammy-nominated acoustic bassist/husband Stephan Crump, Jamie Fox (guitar), Dan Rieser (drums); Chris Brown (piano); and Erin Hill (harp and background vocals). Chapin's new album Reckoning, produced by Five Time Grammy Award Winner, Kevin Killen, a new collection of original songs, reckons with the challenge of balancing creative ambitions with the immediate demands of mothering small children -- combined with a good dose of social commentary. The album is receiving raves from fans and critics alike, drawing comparisons to the songwriting power of Ani DiFranco, Joni Mitchell, and Paul Simon.

Jen Chapin's music is urban folk soul — story songs that search for community and shared meaning, powered by the funk and improvisation of the city. Critics have hailed her work as “brilliant.. soulfully poetic” (NPR), “thoughtful.. worth-savoring” (People), “addictive” (Boston Globe), “smart, observant, lyrically deft, politically aware and emotionally intuitive” (Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel). JazzTimes has called her “a first-rate storyteller” while Relix regards her as “one of the freshest voices singing today." Jen has been featured on “Late Nite with Conan O’Brien”, NPR’s Mountain Stage and WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour, Sirius Satellite’s Bob Edwards Show, The Loft with Mike Marrone and Mary Sue Twohy’s The Village, been honored by the USA Songwriting Competition, has performed on stage with Bruce Springsteen, and opened up for Bruce Hornsby, Smokey Robinson, and the Neville Brothers. Jen's cover of Van Morrison's "Into the Mystic" was prominently featured in a recent episode of the new SyFy series "Defiance".
