JMOOD 256Jennifer Carrozza has been a vocalist since her earliest years, professionally since 1995.  Proudly an Atlanta native, she has released three solo projects, most recently “Rust & Velvet” and has fronted JMood since it’s beginning in 2002.  She has provided vocals and vocal arrangements for countless independent recordings, has been featured in commercials  and had several major label and national-release projects.  Jen has a voice that draws you in to the moment and has been described as velvet sandpaper.  Upon hearing her, you’ll likely come to the same conclusion.
