Jenifer McKitrick

Profile:

As a teenager, McKitrick’s first band, the Bettys, emerged from the fertile Kent/Akron(OH) music scene of the early 80's, along with such acts as Devo, Tin Huey, and The Waitresses. After amusing Ohio audiences and critics for awhile, she moved to Cape Cod, enjoying the beach by day, and honing her stage chops by night.
She then headed to San Francisco, formed the Swingin Doors, with old college friends, and recorded Unhinged, selected by the East Bay Express as one the year’s top 5 records. She caught the attention of legendary producer Sandy Pearlman who got her a demo deal with Warner Bros. Records. He brought that demo to eMusic (formerly GoodNoise), who signed her, and sent her to the studio with Sandy Pearlman, where they spent 9 months crafting the Glow album. The new album, Glow, is a collection of 11 of Jenifers original tunes performed by a dream team of local talent, including Chuck Prophet, Katharine Chase, (Penelope Houston), Tony Marsico (Bob Dylan, Matthew Sweet), and Dawn Richardson (4 Non-Blondes) Stephanie Lee, and Chris von Sneidern (dBs, the Sneetches). It is as powerful today as it was n 2001.
She is now in Ohio reworking older unreleased material and composing new works. Her new album, Road Call, is set to drop December 2022.
